Goals

Is it worthwhile? It will raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association and the Special Olympics. It should help me remain healthy. Yes, it’s worthwhile.

Is it attainable? If it is pursued as a lifelong goal it should be.

It is measurable? Yes, it has a date certain and a milage amount.

Will it conflict with other goals or responsibilities? I am a caregiver, but I feel like it can work by being spontaneous.

What strings will I attach, if any, that would stop the attempt? If I got to where I couldn’t walk very well, the pursuit will continue with a cane, crutches or arm powered wheel chair. Only an extreme health situation or serious responsibility would necessitate stopping the endeavor and calling it a failure.

The Goal

To take the 15,432 miles I have already been on foot concerning Alzheimer’s and add another 14,568 to it, for a total of 30,000 miles on foot by Monday, October 24, 2039. That will be two miles every day. Concurrently 2 miles every day will be walked for the Special Olympics to reach 7284 miles by Monday, July 16, 2029

Today, April 6, 2019, I began working towards both goals.
