400 MILE UPDATE



I cannot believe that it has been a week since I posted. This workout challenge was the reason that I started my blog, so I guess it makes sense that it is the thing that I update most often. I feel so far behind on everything, which is odd since I don't have anything that must be done.
The button above will take you to the main page to see how this challenge works and to see how everyone is doing. 

my progress:

Total this week =11.84 miles
Previous  = 145.5 miles
New total for the year = 157.34 miles

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is what I saw when I did venture out this week.

Day 16 photo challenge

I thought this 30 day challenge would be easy and I didn't read the list ahead of time. I was hoping for something like "send a picture of  a cat", "send something green", "send something from your closet". ..but nooooo,

They just keep getting harder.  


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you.
 




My dear friend Toni,

  You put up one hell of a fight, and you will always be an inspiration to me.


    RIP Glitterbug
