Walk Across America -- sort of

In an effort to improve my health and get in shape, I am now on a mission to Walk Across America -- sort of!

Here's the plan: Every week I will walk around my neighborhood, or at the track, and jot down the mileage. At the end of the week, I will add up my distance and plot it on a map AS IF I was actually walking across America.
I began 13 Oct in Key West, Florida, at the Earnest Hemingway Home & Museum, and as of today I have walked 4 miles. (Not a lot, but hey, I'm just getting started).

My "Finish Line" is Fairbanks, Alaska -- and at the rate I'm going, I'll get there 27 days after I'm dead.

Wish me luck, and here's to another week of....

Walking Across America!


  1. What a great idea! Also, regarding your previous post... I had similar thoughts a few months ago when I saw a squirrel dodging traffic.

  2. by the way, that anonymous comment was from me. It's not easy to leave comments from my new phone!
