I’m posting very late today.

Today has been a day of celebration and reflection.

Tomorrow marks the one year point from when I started my virtual power walk of the Appalachian Trail.

I did a 10K this morning at my best pace ever and in the shortest time ever for that distance ! (pace was 9.54 mins/ k or 3.9 mph) I’ve power walked 1186 K (736.9 miles) in a year and surpassed my goal for the year!

My goal when I started was to get the distance of the AT done (in power walking) by my 70th birthday and in order to do that, I have to average 500K of power walking every 6 months. So, even despite a few set-backs where I had to take longer breaks than I wanted to, I’m still a bit ahead of the game for the first year. And yes, I’m pumping my own tires!

Fingers crossed that the old bod holds up so I can complete it on time.
