When an Idea Takes Hold

Yesterday, an idea came to me.. what would happen if this September I just started walking.. oh not your normal everyday walking but start walking and not stop until I get somewhere.. you know like LA..

Somehow it took on a life of it's own.. logistics were discussed.. finances.. feasibility.. all sorts of things..

The thing is, I think I really want to do this. I turn 50 on Friday, my baby is off to college in August. The other kids are ready to get on with their lives actually already are. They have a support system here if they need a home base.. close friends and some family that will be here for them, so it's not like they won't have anywhere to return to if they need it.

I have always planned on doing something.. when Blond Girl goes off to college. I knew my life would have some major changes coming.. it was planned. BUT I was never sure what I would do.. now the more I think about it, the more I want to do this. Tomorrow I am going to start my practice walking.. I am going to see if I can by the end of the summer be up to 10 miles a day walking. If not, I am thinking so what. I am going to contact sporting goods stores to see if they want to donate materials, contact people and see if they want to sponsor my walk the weight off campaign.. I think I am seriously going to consider actually doing this..

OK, will follow up with updates as I get my stuff together.. or don't *grins* wish me well in my insanity



  1. Is this akin to Forest Gump's run? ;)

    1. I am so gonna find Tom Hanks and have serious words with him.. So many of my friends have made similar remarks *grins*

      In a way yes.. but I have a goal while he ran just to run
