We finished up October with a grand 251 miles. I’m pretty happy with that! How ’bout you all? Getting out there with your pups?
There are officially only two months left in the 2011 Walking Challenge. For us that means we need 114 miles in 61 days. Honestly I don’t know if we’re going to make the miles. Honestly I don’t care! We have had so much fun this year. Looking back I can’t believe all the things we’ve done!
Walks, hikes, travels and biking have all played a part in our miles thus far. We’ve faced injuries, Maizey’s anxiety, rain, snow and heat. None of it stopped us so far and I don’t plan on quitting now! I’m going to finish up the year and no matter what that final number ends up being I’m proud of us.
I’m proud of all the Walking Challenge members! You guys kept us going. No matter what the goals are we’ve all achieved so much and I thank you all for supporting us!
Even if you’ve decided not to finish up the year I hope you all had fun. To me it’s been a great thing and I hope you all feel the same!
So on this un-Monday miles report I leave you with some pictures from our weekend. We had a great weekend of travel and hiking. We went to one of my most favorite places on earth and based on the hours it took me to de-sticker and de-mud the dogs I’m guessing they had a blast!
(I apologize for the quality of the pictures, I got a new camera and haven’t figured out all the kinks just yet. It was just too great a day not to share though so I’m posting them anyways.)
To be continued tomorrow in Wordless Wednesday. . .
I’m happy to report we got out of our slump and log in with 207 miles. It feels great to have passed the 200 mile mark. I feel like no matter what happens the Walking Challenge is a success for us. I’m sure I’ve never walked over 200 miles with any of my dogs in a year.
I’m hoping to hear from everyone since it’s a new month. We really have accomplished so much and with the last months of the year upon us I hope we all push through the winter and feel like we finish the year successful. As far as I’m concerned we’ve all done great!
Since I’m all out of words tonight I leave you with the frolicking monkey’s who also think we’ve all done fabulous with our Walking Challenge!
"WHOOOT!!! We did it guys!! 2,027 miles!"
2,027 miles! With the miles I already know have been done last week we crossed the 2000 mile mark!
That is no small feat and I want to thank you all for your hard work to accomplish such an amazing thing!
We clock in with a new personal high of 175 miles. We’re finally getting back on track with a couple of two mile walks. Magnus’ back leg is still not 100% so I’m not pushing him, but man are we both happy to be back in the trail again.
So what about the rest of everyone? I’m sure you have miles to report and I want to hear them all. In the mean time give yourselves all a big pat on the back, we’ve done an awesome job so far!
I want to thank all of our Walking Challenge members for their patience and loyalty. With all the RP we’re doing around here it seems I just can’t get around to Monday Miles each week. I try to post our RP video’s the same day we do them, but that pretty much takes up all my blogging time.
We are finally making some progress with 8 miles for last week. We’re at a grand total of 165 miles for the year.
We have 19 weeks left to make our goals. For us that means we need about 11 miles a week. Barring injuries, deaths or dismemberments that should be doable. How about all of you? Where are you at with your miles for the year?
The Walking Challenge sure has had some interesting challenges I never expected to face. Magnus’ injuries really set us back, but Maizey’s anxiety challenges us too. I expected to have two dogs to walk and for the most part have had only one. I’m really proud of us and how we’ve stuck too this. I’m really thrilled we have a chance of getting caught up and making our goal.
So how ’bout all of you? Where are you at for the week and for the year? What has been your biggest challenge? If we do a 2012 Walking Challenge would you join us again? Let’s just check in and get this Challenge back on track!
