I joined SparkPeople 4 years ago yesterday on August 18, 2010.
A lot has happened in those years. I had some losses (not on the scale)
My mom died on May 25, 2011
My dad died four months later on September 23, 2011.
My little sheltie baby boy, Cody died on March 6, 2013.
I have moved 4 times (3 of them within 14 months)
I totaled my van and got another one.
And. . .
I have walked.
One of (maybe THE) first teams I joined was the Virtual walk across America. Starting in Virginia we walk across the country virtually finishing in Oregon over 4,000 miles way.
Four years ago today on August 19,2010 I entered my first distance. It was right at a mile (0.9).
I was looking at the website where we enter our miles and got some statistics of my journey.
August 2010 I walked 6 miles
August 2011 I walked 15.6 miles
August 2012 I was not keeping track of my miles while walking Cody so zero miles that year
August 2013 I walked 39.4 miles
So far in August 2014 I have walked 28.5 miles
The site does not keep track of miles for each year. Only the current month, year and total miles. But here are some of the stats that I have kept.
From 8/19/2010 to 8/20/2011 I walked 125.1 miles
From 8/21/2011 to 8/22/2013 I walked 231.7 miles (average of 115.85 miles per year)
From 8/23/2013 to today (8/19/2014) I walked 402.6
In the last TWELVE months I walked more than HALF of the total distance of 759.4 miles.
All in all it has been a good four years. I expect the next four years to be even better.
