Today’s sponsor:

ProSource Logo

ProSource Fitness Equipment is a very strong supporter of Piedmont Triad Apartment Association (my day job), and their point person in our market, Josh Owen, is an active volunteer who recently won PTAA’s Supplier Vendor Partner of the Year Award. They’re also very involved in the community, including PTAA’s Food Drive.

ProSource is a provider of fitness equipment, both commercial and residential, and I can vouch for them personally because I’ve purchased from them for my home gym and have had nothing but a good experience with the equipment and the company.

They donated enough for a week’s worth of sponsorship and Monday/Tuesday was Day 5. Much thanks to Josh and the team at ProSource Fitness for supporting the walk (and PTAA’s Food Drive) and for continuing to be leaders in our community!



Activity Day 63: For this walk, I once again enjoyed the company of my better 3/4, my partner in crime, Celeste Lowder. The day was very hot and steamy so we waited until about 9 p.m. to get started, which allowed us to get in some good miles without risking heat stroke.

Miles walked/run: 6.02 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:


Miles remaining in challenge: 29.96
