That’s one long bridge
Good thing, too: I’m officially in training!
Over the weekend, Christi, a childhood friend from Kentucky, wrote to ask me about the walk on my “Bucket List” that I wrote about several blogs ago.
Turns out, she wants to travel here that day to help me check the Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Walk off my list!
Now, this walk certainly is no race. You aren’t even allowed to run if you sign up to do the walk part, which is what we’ll do.
But it is the entire span of the Mackinac Bridge, which is 5 miles. And right now, 5 miles seems like a marathon to me.
I have until Sept. 6 to work up to it. I’ll do it.
Heck, even a few weeks ago, getting on the treadmill and knocking out 1.8 miles before work seemed impossible.
But I’m doing it.
And yes, I weighed this morning: 2 more pounds gone.
So far, I’ll be carrying 8 fewer pounds when I get to that bridge.
How about you?
