Walking Winston

Activity Day 19: Went for a nice long walk around Winston-Salem and it reminded me that cities look different when you walk them versus when you drive through them. The miles logged today got me through the 100-mile threshold since the start of the challenge on May 1.

Miles walked/run: 9.41 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Miles remaining in challenge: 261.13. As I mentioned before, these miles get me past the 100-mile threshold for the challenge. Looking forward to the next 100!

Walking in Place

Activity Day 18: Didn’t feel like swimming for my miles, so given the day’s monsoons I decided a session on the treadmill would be the best approach to get in the miles. Boring? You bet, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Miles walked/run: 5.03 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Day 9 of Virtual Walk Around the Triad to Benefit Second Harvest

Activity Day 9: Spent 90 minutes at Taylor Tennis Center hitting with my buddy Tyler. Learned that it’s a very good thing I don’t get paid to play because I’d have to return the money.

Miles walked/run: 6.13 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:

Activity Day 8: Squeezed in a late night walk around the neighborhood. It ain’t exotic, but it’s effective.

PTAA Food Drive for Second Harvest

Each year my employer, the Piedmont Triad Apartment Association, puts on a food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC. The folks at WPTI were kind enough to have Dale Holder, our food drive committee chair, and yours truly on their Triad View Points show to talk about it. Here’s the interview:
