-My total goal distance is then 1,064 miles.
-Challenge runs from January 1st thru October 31st, which is 304 days.
-That means... I need to cover 3.5 miles per day to achieve my goal distance.

To say I'm disappointed is an understatement, but then again I got out what I put in, and that was not much. To know I only missed it by 131 miles though, it feels like a shame. I don't think we have a challenge in place for 2015, at least not a walking challenge one. I was trying to get something together to spark some jazz back into our fitness routine, but I just won't have the time to commit with school and work. I have 4 classes for the Spring, all at inconvenient times, so my work schedule might get a little crazy. Or a lot crazy. Probably the latter.

So, here is my final map for this challenge. I had tons of fun, and hope to be able to do something like this for 2015, but we'll see.

So close!!! :-(

Be happy, be healthy, be you!
