Challenge update and a Thank You!

I wanted to take a few minutes to give you an updated on my progress for the 100 Mile May Movement Challenge, and to send out a thank you to a fellow blogger.

Today is May 7th (the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania for the History buffs among us). For the second morning in a row I failed to get up to work out. Yesterday I went for an after-dinner walk with my wife. We covered 3.5 miles in the neighborhood. Combined with my half mile at work, it took me to a total of 4.0 miles for the day

may movementI am well on my way, and feeling good. At my present pace, I will end up at almost 115 miles for the month.

On this post I also want to send out a special thank you. As some of you know, my blogging friend, Alison, set up a blogging pen-pal program. Those of us who participated were given the name and address of another blogger who is working on their weight. The idea was to send them a care package in the mail to brighten their day. At the end of last week (I know, I am terribly behind on this), mine arrived!

She is from Louisiana and even managed to pick a hot sauce that my wife and I tried and enjoyed while visiting New Orleans earlier this year. A total home run!!! Thank you. Please follow the link above and give her blog a look.

I hope your week is progressing well. Make today a great day, and I will check in with you all again soon!


  1. Nice on all accounts! Glad your walking is going well. I was thinking about it, when we started this year you had other goals like posts, photographs etc. What about all of that? 🙂


I'd love to read what you think. Feel free to comment. You can do so anonymously if you like, but I'd really like to know who you are if you don't mind. Thank you for reading! :)
