Well, I finished my self-imposed challenge of a Mile a Day for 30 days. In the end, I ended up one mile short. I thought about adding a day to the challenge but since it was my made up challenge, it seemed like a pretty lackluster way to make myself feel better about skipping. So … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Days 29 and 30
I always say that anyone can do anything* for 30 days but 30 days really is a long time to do the same thing and continue finding interest in it. Or at least continue to find interest writing about it. I imagine it's the same for reading so I'm going to start condensing the last … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 25-28
Winston and I meandered through the neighborhood, switching up our usual route. It was a slow walk but enough to count.
I'm tired of this mile. I feel worn out today so I came home and put on sweatpants and a baggy long sleeved t-shirt from my high school days. But Winston and I did get in our mile. Disheveled clothes and all.
She rode her bicycle while Freddy, Winston, and I walked. She pedaled hard. She almost made the turn from road to sidewalk this time. She only needed a little push. Halfway through the ride, she stopped. "I need to climb this wall," she said. She hopped off her little bike and scaled the retainer wall … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 22
A split mile. Some on bike with my beautiful and ever-surprisingly-capable three year old daughter (Do you ever stop feeling amazed at what your child can accomplish?) who got a big girl bike with training wheels today! And some with my trusty mutt, Winston. I adore this cautious and courageous child. She is a lion … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 20
I have no idea whether it's Day 2 of Whole30 or the mom who came in behind me this week at daycare simultaneously dripping and sniffing snot, but I am feeling whooped today. The weather isn't helping matters either. "Unseasonably warm" would not paint a clear enough picture for you. It's HOT. We're desperately running … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 17
Tonight's mile was brought to you by this surprise: Oh, and I'm 30.
I'm officially 1/3 of the way through this self-imposed challenge! I walked up to a local soccer game with my family and back. The trip was short of a mile but in the same way we eyeball a serving size of [insert guilty pleasure here], I was tempted to count it. The anxiety of the … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 10
It's incredible how different the same places can look under different positions of the sun. Last night, mile 7 was completed at dusk. Winston and I donned our reflective gear and glowed as the sun set on us. The colors were deeper, richer. The path was clear. And today we're preparing for mile 8 in … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 7
