I've just joined so bear with me, I've never done blogs before. I saw this one and I like to get in a walk every day with my dogs. In fact, I have to walk them everyday, so this gives me a specific goal. On Monday we got in about 1.5 miles yesterday about 1 mile, and today was a work day so we did the short ciruit which is .7 miles. So that gets me to 3.2 so far for the month. Its a little bit each day but steady. The monthly marathon is a great idea. Most days I walk the neighborhood, there are several different circuits I take depending on how much time we have.
