Adventure Challenge – Day 73: Charity Miles

Day 73

Sticking to my goal of preparing for my 10K I have started the Couch to 10K running program. I used it a few years ago to get up to a 5K and was very impressed with it. I’ve been good at running every other day. It is hard for me to figure out how to come up with a real plan for preparing for trails. I decided to go out and just walk the Kill Creek trail about 20 minutes from my home. Unfortunately it had rained so the dirt trails were all blocked off. I ended up walking the paved trails instead. I also ended up going much further than I intended with 8.25 miles. 

It was a beautiful day and great walk. In addition, I recently discovered a phone app called Charity Miles. I downloaded it, and now use it to while training and exercising. My time translates into corporate donations to a charity of my choosing. Definitely check it out! 

Oh, and the combination of running and 8.25 mile walk…well, I may have to slow down a little. Needless to say, I ended up requiring 2 days of rest to recover.

I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
