My 95 by 65 Goal #11 was initially a "to be decided later" walking challenge. Yesterday I decided it was about time I set that up, and determined that it would be fun to aim for the distance between here and our family in New Hampshire. The "crow flies" distance is 1130 miles. Since the middle of 2014 I've been letting my phone keep track of the steps I've taken (walking or running). That's only if I have the phone on me, so the recorded numbers are lower than my actual steps, but quite good enough for this purpose.
The app keeps track of the raw data, but not in a form useful for "walking to New Hampshire," so today I set up a spreadsheet to analyze the data, starting from the beginning of this year, and keep track of my progress as I head for the goal.
SURPRISE! I'm already there! I arrived two days ago.
It blows me away to realize how much I've walked in under a year. I guess small steps do make for great progress over time.
Continuing the trip to "visit" our other grandkids adds 3747 "crow files" miles and involves walking on water. I guess I'd better get going!
