2017 in pages

May finish another book or two, but for 2016 I’m at 82/75 and 61 for #2016TBRPile, both of which I’m happy with. I stumbled on an amazing roundup of 2017 reading challenges for which I’m glad because it doesn’t look like the 2016 one will be back in 2017. I’m definitely going to do another […]


#GoTheDist 2016 home stretch

This blog is late, but going out with a bang. November: 320,610 steps 131.81 miles walked Q4 to Date 655,441steps 269.34 miles walked 2016 to Date: 3,747,352 steps 1,540.28 miles walked Yep, 4 million is happening. I’m less confident about 300K for the 12th month in a row, but it’s possible and I’ll push for […]


#GoTheDist: October 2016

so what where my October goals? 301,135/302,677 (actually aiming higher, I want a cushion against a bad December) 30 miles biked And my October totals? 334,831 steps 137.53 miles walked 4.5 miles biked (way too nice out) That’s insane/amazing with two weekends away and I’m really thrilled. I’m starting November strong with a 15K day […]


#GoTheDist 2016: September and Q4

so a 350K month happened. Specifically, a 352,423 step month. Whoa!

#GoTheDist August 2016

aka QUIT FREAKING OUT. Maybe in bold, all caps I’ll actually listen to myself. So I had a freak out at the end of July about August’s travel and fretting over 280 vs. 300K and shooting for 900K. August’s total? 325,874 steps. Thank you two insane days in Colorado and a couple good here when […]


#GoTheDist 2016 3.1

I came to an important realization this weekend. Or, to be honest, an acknowledgement of something I realized a long time ago. I cannot enjoy a good step day/week/month because I’m forever fretting about the next. Le sigh. That said, July was a-MA-zing. 345,390 steps 141.86 miles 72.43 miles biked (11 gym visits) My July […]


#GoTheDist 2016, midway point

Woah, we’re half way there, woah, livin’ on a prayer. Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear, woah, livin’ on a prayer How is it July 1 already? My step goals for 2016 were 3,600,000 / 3,680,000. I’m currently at 2,068,024. I’m mostly ignoring miles due to the inconsistent step/mile ratio, but I’m at […]


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 May 2016

My spreadsheet has gone berserk. Not only do I have columns for my monthly goal as well as to top the month the prior year, I have columns for 1m and 2m steps. Berserk! I didn’t top May 2015’s total, but I knew I wouldn’t. I’m a little disappointed in myself for the number of […]
