am I on track to reach the goal? 2092 miles!!

It’s a goal that was set to put a little excitement in the mix for me.

Mom and I keep each other safe and have now for over 2 and 1/2 years. I walk when it works and have learned to be spontaneous.

The goal is to be on foot at least 2092 miles, according to the Charity Miles application, between January 1 and December 31st 2018.

As of last night the number is 1,830, with 262 more needed.

The Charity Miles application tracks my miles and advertisers donate money to the Special Olympics for each mile walked.

The walking will hopefully help me remain fit.

since March 1, 2018 – for the Special Olympics

For the Special Olympics and the Special Olympians.

1509 miles on foot for the Special Olympics. The miles were tracked using the Charity Miles application.

How was October 2018?

According to the Charity Miles application I walked 238 miles in October.

The YTD miles on foot is 1,673.

Since June 1, 2012, my on foot miles have been 18,713.

15 miles on foot today

Sometimes, not often though, circumstances arise that make for a long day outside. That was the case today. I walk, so it can take a while to get it done.

Hopefully, the walking will help me stay fit and remain mobile.

I track the miles on my phone, using the Charity Miles application. Special Olympics is the charity.

Milestone June 11 2018 Special Olympics

I enjoy reaching special places such as the 500th mile mark for the Special Olympics. The actual number after todays miles is 514. It feels good and I appreciate the Charity Miles folks for their application. The app makes it easy.

Resting on my laurels for a few minutes.

They can see me now . . .

The beautiful shirt I purchased from the Special Olympics was on my back for the first time out on Highway 80 today.

The ear buds were put away so folks that may consider stopping, feel more comfort.

In 3 miles I witnessed 3 vehicles pulling over. We chatted, good stuff. Still no stroller, hoping to add that soon, when the signs arrive for it.

Several more shirts are on order and from this day forth that’s what I will wear out there.

As mentioned yesterday, the donations have been a big surprise, a good surprise.
