    Too late to join this?

    I'll warn you though, I won "Alternative Transporter of The Month" at my local co-op grocery and got featured in their newspaper for walking to the store, and in general, so much!

    Killian, jump on in! As an extreme non-competitor, I'm all for it. Besides, having an Alternative Transporter of the Year can only add prestige and honor to our little group.

    Funny... I'm watching a Nordic Trac commercial as I read this thread. It's a sign. I'm in. But I'm setting a goal of "a lot" and I'm going to get a Fitbit.

    It's definitely spring in CA and another great month for walking...been fun watching all the flowers come out and the birds returning. I started doing hills because of plantar fasciitis but am now relying on them to get my HR up into the mid-ranges, as my standard (flat) 6mi neighborhood loop feels more & more like a stroll. I remember when I first started walking it 90 lbs ago I could only do about one 22-minute mile before the lower back pain would make me turn around.

    Here's my stats for Feb!
    Feb 3 - 8.6 mi 1550' elevation
    Feb 5 - 7.7 mi 1400'
    Feb 6 - 9.6 mi 2400'
    Feb 9 - 6.0 mi
    Feb 10 - 6.2 mi
    Feb 11 - 7.7 mi 1400'
    Feb 12 - 6.2 mi
    Feb 13 - 6.2 mi
    Feb 14 - 6.0 mi

    Feb 24 - 9.6 mi 2400'
    Feb 28 - 6.0 mi

    Ack! Horrid weather + being sick = bugger all walking over the past fortnight. I'll have to make up some serious miles in the next few months.

    YTD total: 135.5

    @cantare, almost 500 km, this is really impressive! And a beautiful picture!

    Spring is coming here, too. It's quite warm, but no sun and most of the time with a light drizzle. It's OK to be outside, but not that much fun (at least in town, where I do most of my walking). I try to do my 3 kms daily and saturday and sunday larger distances in the forest!

    I just got my Merell Trail Gloves (I prefer men's shoes because they fit my feet better). I love my VFFs but my Classics collect too much dirt and my TrekSport get uncomfortable after 8-10 kms. And they're not warm enough during the winter months. I can't handle temperatures lower than 10 C, my feet get really cold and usually don't warm up again And as I can't handle normal shoes anymore, I hope the Trail Gloves will be a good compromise. At least they are zero drop. But compared to my VFFs they feel much less like bare feet.

    Cantare,
    So jealous of your beautiful scenery. I live in the middle of Iowa. How boring.

    It's one thing to be caught in a shower on your way home but I am not interested in starting my walk in pouring rain without benefit of a jacket. In saying that, I have been doing LHT and resistance exercises on days I wasn't prepared to brave the weather. Oh. and the last thing I want is to risk getting a cold to take with me when we visit our seriously ill DIL in NZ next week.

    Anyway, finally got in another 9km this morning.
