14,793

Mini update time. 14,793. That’s the average step count of my current 31 day Fitbit goal streak that dates back to March 15, the day after a snow day.  I hadn’t realized the streak was so long and only went back to count when I realized I crossed 75K in this week’s Workweek challenge and […]


March 2017: I ran away from “I can’t”

yep. That’s what happens when #GoTheDist meets #RunTheYear/#RunWithJoy Earlier this month I said: “I’m taking a run at my Q1 2016 goal. Probably impossible, but worth a try.” My Q1 2016 total? 1,008,946 My Q1 2017 total? 1,064,082 That is my best quarter, narrowly topping Q2 2016‘s 1,059,278. I also said: “Why is this still […]


40,000 steps

In. One. Day. It’s not my personal best. That honor still goes to the Saunter. But it’s my best since that day and was also a product of Shorewalkers. The thing I’m most proud about? Nearly 6 of these miles were after I bailed on the official walk. Anyway… I’ve had a thing for bridges […]


#GoTheDist: February 2016

Much like I had a mega day in January 2016 and February 2015, I had one in February 2016. A 30K day, to be exact. That helped me counter a few lower days and one 1500 step day (sick day). Thanks to that day, February went gangbusters. February 2016 totals: 313,153 steps 128.84 miles walked […]


#GoTheDist 2016

wasn’t I just writing out the goals for 2015? For more reasons than this challenge, this year has gone by in a flash. It’s somewhat bizarre to be writing up 2016 goals before wrapping 2015 but a) I’m traveling for the next two days and b) I’ve already been overthinking 2016 way too much. I […]


#GoTheDist 4.1

While I finished the month strong-ish, it wasn’t quite enough to hit my September goals.   292,984 steps walked 120.4 miles walked If I’d realized I was that close I’d have taken 16 more steps for 293K. I actually realized about midway through the month that 300K wasn’t happening but, when I came home from […]


sometimes, not making goal is OK

about that 333,333K July step goal and second attempt at one million steps? Not happening. And that’s not my usual pessimism speaking either.  I realized it back in July but thought I might have a chance at making it up in August. That’s a no. July totals: 310,076 steps 126.97 miles walked August nearly final […]


#GoTheDist Q2 nearly went

because I know if I wait until tomorrow, this won’t happen. With two days left in Q2, the numbers are great. June: 328,083 steps 134,89 miles walked 14.24 miles biked Final June (they got better) 350,613 steps 144.15 miles walked 14.24 miles biked Q2:  932,746 steps 383.38 miles walked 35.33 miles biked Q2 Final: 955,276 […]


#GoTheDist: Feb 2014

I knew February was going to be down due to three+ days of lost tracking, but it actually wasn’t as bad as I feared. February 2014: 69.miles walked (165,667 steps), 16.69 miles biked. Great, no. Good? Yes. For the record: February 2013 20.52 miles walked 54.15 miles biked Definitely walking more than I did, still […]


Officially Team @FitBit

my Jawbone apparently celebrated my two millionth step a little too hard last Friday, because now it’s dead. Utterly and totally toast. So I went out and got what I wanted back in May: the Fitbit Flex. I will have lost 3.5 days of data (midday Monday – Thurs PM), but no real idea on […]
