In 2021, Wilderness Magazine began the “walk1200km” challenge to celebrate 30 years of publishing their magazine and every year since, the challenge has grown by thousands. Last year, those participants, including our friends, accumulated enough kilometres between them to walk to the moon and back.
Walk 12 hundred kilometres?
A piece of cake, I thought to myself, and it may seem easy when those kilometres are spread over a year though I have a feeling it will hold enough challenge for me as I intend to do more than the 1200kms. I have no intention of fast walking as in training for another half marathon; these 1200-plus kilometres will be enjoyed at a leisurely pace and a few upward climbs just because being sweaty and increasing my heart rate is good for me. So, I am told.
That’s me for 2023, staying focused on putting one foot after another no matter what’s happening in our lives.
Here are glimpses of where I have been … just another 1150+ kms to go
As time is of no consequence when out walking, I enjoy the scenery more; even though I repeatedly go over the same tracks, I don’t tire of them and always find something new to view. This post is all about the beach, being summertime and all.
