#GoTheDist 3.2

or nearly… I’ve finally found the sweet spot between my #GoTheDist goal being a challenge, but an attainable one. I knew that July would be bad, and it was. But I set two goals and I made one of two. The goal was 250K steps and I ended up with 260,908. Mileage goal was 117 […]

#GoTheDist 2.2

About halfway through May I realized that 300,000 steps for the month was doable after just missing it. And then I became a woman on a mission to make it happen. I wasn’t sure if I had since I was away from my spreadsheet but after entering Weds-Sat… I MADE IT! May Totals: 305, 841 […]


#GoTheDist 2.1, Went!

Totals for April: 298,822 steps 123.44 miles walked Personal Q2 goals, you are well in sight. As is the official #GoTheDist goal of 350 miles walked. If I’d realized how close I was to 300K steps or 125 miles walked this month I’d have figured out a way to get them. But this is still […]

neighborhoods: mini cities in their own right

as I was taking advantage of today’s brief flirtation with spring, and sitting, reading on one of the many Finley Walk benches, I plotted several errands I needed to run. One of them was on 96th St. and it felt so far away-even though it was only 10 blocks from where I sat. I wasn’t […]


#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 […]
