These Feet Were Made for Walking

I love walking.
It is a perfect exercise, so easy to do.

 I walked 250.5 miles in June,
an average of 8.35 miles per day.
Most days I walked 8 miles, some days 5 miles.
My lowest two days were 2 miles and 3 miles.
The last 5 days of June I started walking 15 miles a day.

 ~Time for new shoes ~

My goal for July is to average 10 miles a day.

I watched the movie The Way, a few months ago, about several travelers 
who walk the Camino de Santiago through Spain and France.

The movie sparked a dream inside of me.
I probably will never walk through Europe, 
but I would like to maybe someday walk across the U.S.
My husband is not so big on the idea; however, one never really knows...

When I am out walking each day, 
through heat, thirst, and sweat,
I visualize that dream.


  1. I'll tell you what, you can come here and walk the 'hills' at school everyday if you want (giggling). I guarantee, you will fulfill that dream. smiles

    Have a Joyful weekend, friend.

  2. What an amazing trip that would be!

    Thank you for sharing the thoughts of your dream. It made me smile.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Good morning, Hope~

    What a BEAUTIFUL DREAM! I love walking myself. I wish My Skippy Man enjoyed it as much as I do.

    I pray you are doing well!


  4. A wonderful dream, my friend!
    Have a cozy holiday weekend. : )

  5. Wow, Hope, that is seriously impressive. Way to go on on the miles you logged - and will continue to add to your count this summer. I hope you find a really comfy, long lasting new pair of kicks.

    Many hugs & joyful start of July wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  6. Hi Hope, WOW that will be a true dream to accomplish walking 10 miles a day. I know you will do it since you've been walking near that now. Keep the dream alive and maybe you hubby will warm up to the idea too. I'll wave as you walk through Texas.
    Blessings for a Happy 4th of July! xo

  7. Oh wow! That is a LOT of miles! I love to walk too, but you have definitely out-walked me!!!! Wow! That is a great dream that you have, and I hope you get to see it happen! :)
