I'm Walking to Chicago: 700 km (435 Mile)

Not really but I decided to take up the suggestion of Ms M from Fatscapades of a Redheaded Chick and put in my miles/kilometers in the next 6 months.

I am not someone who actually likes to challenge myself but I can do this. In my last post I mentioned how important exercise was in keeping young. If those tiny little mice can walk on a treadmill to stay young, I can too! 

So I will put on my pedometer and walk, from Toronto to Chicago, virtually. I am vacillating about going to Chicago. My DH and I are planning a cruise down the Danube in October. Looks like we will be booking the end of October which leaves me free to go to Chicago for BOOBS 2.0. I'm actually thinking of driving. I love to drive and maybe, just maybe Gilly will join me for the last half of the trip (700 km or about 7 hours)?

Here is my goal:
Drive from Ottawa to Toronto to get Gilly: 348 km
700 km from Toronto to Chicago
7 months, 214 days 
100 km per month 
3 km per day.
Yup, I can do this.

Tie up your runners. Warm up and then come join the walk to Chicago.

On your mark, get set. GO!

Does anyone know how many KM or miles it is from Brisbane Australia to Chicago?!? Do you think I could swim there :p Have fun with your walking challenge :o)

Jen said...

You have to come, I hope that is a yes. I'm taking it as a yes anyway. It's harder to tell someone no when they already think it's a yes. Amiright? Wink.

Walk Sandy, Walk!! Great challenge for yourself. Exciting!! You better buy stock in sneakers.
