today I reached 200,000 steps. I will say that again, today the woman who didn’t walk anywhere today reached two hundred thousand steps. In twelve days I have walked ninety miles. When I started practising for this crazy challenge at the beginning of June I thought it would take forever, never mind three months to complete. Now it seems I may not need all the time given. Not that I will stop once the millionth step has been stepped, I am in this for the long haul, but 200,000 steps is worth celebrating.
So I celebrated by buying myself some new clothes. Smaller sizes than before and specifically to help me, I picked up a fabulous breathable waterproof jacket, thin enough to wear when walking and snug enough to keep me dry. I also bought a new sweatshirt top in thin but warm fabric, I am now ready for anything.
