Most recent Milestones:
Milestone #4 Occurred yesterday. See the odometer above? Since beginning this blog in the summer of 2005, Ive walked just over 4,000 miles. That equates to an average of about 83 miles that Ive walked every single month, for 4 years in a row. Not bad when you consider that the average healthy person probably walks or runs less than a 1/10 of that. And btw, those 4,000 miles are above and beyond the regular walking that one would do during a typical day at home or at work.
Milestone #5 …Occurred last week when I completed my 1000th walk across the Al Zampa Memorial bridge in Crockett,Calif. Walking that bridge accounts for more than 2,000 of those 4,000 miles . If you remember, my friend Melvin celebrated his 1000th crossing of that bridge just a few months back.
Milestone #6 …After suffering a near fatal asthma back in August of 2004, my partner was told by the doctors, that I had less than a 50/50 chance of surviving another 2 years. 5 years later, I’m walking marathons.
Milestone #7.. Will hopefully occur in 2 weeks, when I officially become a senior citizen. Yup , I turn 55 years old on Sept 12th ( pretty scary huh). I will have survived this disease all the way from birth to old age.
