    John Stone's post this week about declaring your intentions in public, along with my birthday this week (which brought about my intentions for the next year) inspired me to start this challenge. You can join any time, with the goal being to accomplish the task in one year's time.

    Walk 500 miles, and run 500 more. It's that simple.

    Forgive my paraphrasing the lyric from the Proclaimers one and only hit single from the 80's, but it seemed appropriate. And forgive me for making a terrible pun in the challenge thread title, but it seemed appropriate as well.

    I plan to put one post here with my weekly mileage totals, and edit it to show the numbers as they go up towards the goal. Have fun!

    BTW... if you walk four days per week, you would need to do about 2.5 miles (2.4 to be exact) a day to hit your goal. If you run three days per week, it works out to about a 5k (3.2 miles to be exact) to get that part of the plan.

    Week Six update:

    I'm at the 50 mile marker on my journey to walk 500 miles in a year.

    I'll need to average around 9.75 miles a week in order to reach my goal.

    I'm at the 8 mile marker on my journey to run 500 miles in a year.

    I'll need to average around 10.75 miles a week in order to reach my goal.
