WALKING FOR A CAUSE...AND SOMETIMES JUST BECAUSE

Groans...

8-21-10

Ok, I did 17 miles and didn't die.

The last couple of miles...that hurt. Really, really hurt.

But...no blisters. Sore feet bottoms, but no blisters.

I got the bright idea last night to buy an audiobook to listen to while walking today, thinking it would help...and it did. It was easy to get lost in the story instead of counting down miles, so it wasn't until I'd piled up over 10 miles before I realized foot fatigue was setting in. I really felt it at 13 miles and just wanted to be done, and wound up sitting down almost every mile after that for a couple of minutes, but I hit the door at 17 miles and only have 3 minutes left on the audiobook.

Would have finished it, but the pool was calling my name.

I might have to d/l another one for tomorrow.

I don't know if you've tried audible for books on tape, but you can sign up for a membership there, and the books are a lot cheaper.

PS - Congratulations on getting 17 miles in. That's a huge accomplishment.

Something to distract you, it worked!
