Last week, total miles: 21
Miles: 10 and a bit, at the Santa Fe Trail, which is a very long trail that runs from Wyoming to New Mexico. Very pretty.
On the Ipod: Exercise mix #1, which consists of some Laura Love and Mellencamp and other things for the first half. Then switched to Letting God of God, by Julia Sweeney, which is so funny I was praying that none of the runners on the trail thought I was off my meds or something.
Snacks: Peanut butter, apple, Luna bar.
No real aches and pains, though my neck is a little stiff from carrying the heavier pack. (It’s challenging to get the clothing correct for a long walk on a February afternoon in Colorado.)
The pitch: I have committed to raising $2500 by June. It isn’t a sponsorship, but direct donations to each walker’s tally. The money goes to helping provide screening and care for women who are under- or uninsured, a cause about which I am passionate. If you feel moved to donate, you can do so, here.
