  • 3 Goals

    Since this past Saturday, I have hit 3 milestone goals:

    1. Saturday, 7/13/13. I speed walked my first 5K. Two of my great girlfriends did it with me. In 2010, Elyria Police Officer James Kerstetter was shot in the line of duty. This is his honorary run every year. This was an honor to do this for his foundation. Here are a few photos of the event:

    2. Sunday, 7/14/13. This day is my 5-year anniversary with Ridge Tool Company. I've been with the TOOL for 5 YEARS! Whoo Hoo!

    3. Tuesday, 7/16/13. I got back on the wagon and did 3.4 miles speed walking this morning BEFORE work. I speed walked the distance with 15 minute miles (mile 1 = 14:59, mile 2 = 15:04; mile 3 = 15:18). I averaged 15:15 each mile and walked an average of 3.9 mph (at a WALK).

    And it's only TUESDAY! What's next on the hit parade?

    Love to all!

        you can out walk me, I can still walk but I do it more out of necessity not desire, usually when some thing breaks down (and the rule if it is going to break down it has to be with in 100 yards of the furthest point your working at), I usually walk a lot fixing or building fences, and there is plenty of them to fix around here,

          I can imagine the amount of walking you do to build and fix those fences.

          So we're now camping for the summer. We were able to afford a new camper. The place has 2 lakes (75 acres) and, as you can probably imagine, I'm walking them. NO riding for me!

          Today, I had the opportunity to walk each lake individually and map it out. The lake our camp site is on is 1.6 miles. The other, 2. Over the time it took me to map both, I walked almost 5 miles total. Not bad for having done that before noon. THEN, someone there sold us a paddle boat. Hubby and I paddled it from the one lake to the other. MORE exercise. It was nice!
