Walking, Rain and Quiet

May 31, 2016

It remained quiet here yesterday. I took Tucker out to the park to walk before lunch. It was a beautiful mid morning. The park was full of families having picnics, lots of fisherman and fisherwoman and fisherkids, lots of bikes passing us on the path, lots of dogs and owners and one mom in a kayak towing her four year old son in his own kayak. It was so cute.

After one trip around the lake (2 miles), it looked like a pretty good storm was coming in, so we went home. After it passed, I headed back out to walk 4 more miles in my neighborhood.

I love this park!


I only have 3 miles to walk today, then my challenge is complete!

Did you walk 100 Miles with me this month? 

I will do the drawing at the end of the day today for the FlipBelt! Good Luck! I love mine!


Thanks for walking with me. It’s been fun to get updates on how everyone was doing along the way. I know one of you finished early, and some of you had things come up, and were not able to finish. I think the important thing here is that we all made the effort to be more active than we have been in months passed. I know I was! Whether you were able to complete the challenge or not, I hope that you are feeling eager to get more activity in on a regular basis and take some time each day to do something for yourself.

If you were not able to walk 100 miles, did you challenge yourself in some way? I’d love to know what you did.

The remainder of my day was really chill. I found enough food to throw us together our favorite salad, then I took a bath at 6:00. I was in there until about 7:30 binge watching Bloodline. Geeezzzz, now I just want it to be over. Netflix is dumb. Or maybe I’m dumb. That could be it.

I hope everyone was able to enjoy the long weekend with family and friends, or maybe some quiet time doing something for yourself.

Have a great week!

    Hi Rita!

    I hope you were able to get in a little more activity than you would have other wise. Being away from home would have been tough for me too!

    Hope you have a great week!

  3. Congrats on your walking this month.
    Love the saying today!!

  4. Not going to make the 100 miles. Been away from home for a week now and so hard to keep on any kind of schedule. Hope everyone else made it!
