September Home Stretch

But I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more. Just to be the man who walks a thousand miles to fall down at your door. I love Shorewalkers, they got me exploring Manhattan when I couldn’t do Keep Running

Great Saunter and Steps Goals

The Great Saunter is not only a gorgeous walk for a great cause, it’s a wonderful thing for my steps math. With Saturday’s 60K steps (~56K of which were Saunter), my May stretch goals went from iffy to doable. That Keep Running

Great Saunter 2017

I started the #GreatManhattanLoop project because I knew I could never finish the Saunter. That was ~50lbs ago and before I discovered my Fitbit addiction. Two attempts and five/six years of walking Manhattan later I’ve realized I’m never going to Keep Running

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 Keep Running

A walk down Wall Street

I had only vague plans of what I wanted to do after finishing the Trinity Church tour. Walk up to the Lower East Side and explore more of my adopted home? Walk down to Wagner Park and read while taking Keep Running

12,901 steps

12,901 steps, four buses, and one bridge crossed. Twice. My Sunday, in a nutshell. Was any of that planned? Of course not. The awful heat wave finally broke and I felt like exploring and reading. That eliminated one of my Keep Running
