Moving Erin

Activity Day 12: Our daughter needed some help moving into her new apartment, so the day was spent toting stuff out of one apartment, loading cars and unloading at the new place. Luckily, her boyfriend recruited his brothers and one buddy to help so I didn’t have to move much furniture. Overall, one of the easier moves of my extended career as a volunteer mover.

Miles walked/run: 4.76 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 299.3. Woot!Less than 300 left to go.

Dodging Raindrops on the Bicentennial Greenway

Activity Day 11: A nice long walk on the Bicentennial Greenway, from north High Point into Jamestown. There’s a creek that the path crosses over several times and the vast majority of the path is shaded by trees, which makes it a very pleasant walk…even when it rains.

Miles walked/run: 8.2 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 304. Now a few miles ahead of the pace needed to make the goal by July 7.

Smacking Balls

Recovery and Usefulness

Days 6 of Virtual Walk Around the Triad to Benefit Second Harvest
