My Walking Challenge!

Many of you know I'm an avid walker and wellll, crazy enough to challenge myself every now and then.  TODAY is definitely one of those days as I find myself joining 1,999 others for:

It's exciting, a little nerve racking, but most of all exciting as I find myself venturing out the door this morning to tackle an unknown course. I'm looking forward to this 13 mile journey and hope to have some beautiful photos to share tomorrow. 


Now, I have to admit the carb loading has been nothing short of wonderful this week as I enjoyed homemade, full course meals of spagetti and manicotti. (THANKS To my husband....who it btw the best cook! I on the other-hand burn toast!) Oh...and there's cold beer waiting in the frig for when I get home.  Nice right! Once this is all said in done though, walking is always part of my mental health but I'm admittably looking forward to getting caught up on some quilting challenges I've fallen behind on now that the long training days are behind me. My training has been rejuvinating to my creative process and uplifting to my soul...but, I found,  not as much a quilting is and that's good to know!

  15. Enjoy the hike Val. I used to be able to walk and hike for miles and miles, but now I can only walk for 2 miles at a time. I have issues with my right ball of the foot and it gets too sore to walk for more than 2 miles. A couple of decades ago I hiked into the Grand Canyon to the bottom and out the next day. Knees hurt going down, down, down, but after a night's sleep I was fine. Glad I did it while I could.
