Monthly Miles: February 2020

Just like that, we’re one-sixth of the way in to 2020! March has arrived and soon – we all hope, after repeated weekends of storm weather – spring will soon be on the way!

#walk1000miles – December 2018

I’ve been saying this all year but, I had no intention of walking the full one-thousand miles this year. My aim was purely to walk as often as would seem reasonable and to see, out of curiosity, how many miles I could cover within an average year.

Well, that hunger probably took over – aided by several months of unemployment, lots of free time and the ambition to complete my first National Trail. I have many good memories from 2018 and I look forward to walking my way through 2019…

#Walk1000Miles – May 2017

May was a very short month, wasn’t it?

At this time in 2016, I’d walked 83.5 miles in May and was looking at a tally of 346.75 miles for the year so far…

How will this point in 2017 compare?

#walk1000miles – March 2017

Here we are on the 1st of April (no jokes, here). It’s time to review the first month of spring. Going in to this, I have to say that I’m a bit disappointed with my tally for March…
