A New StartWalking Program

Yay! Finally a new program is starting. I'm afraid that I am one of those individuals who benefit from these types of programs. The minimal incentives are more than sufficient to keep me motivated. Walking is something that almost anybody can do (even me) and, especially with the conversion charts provided to do other activities in addition to walking, it is easy to feel successful. The Nike+ challenges are alright but for some reason, don't provide with the same level of motivation that the StartWalking program has. Maybe it is too competitive. Anyway, a big thank you to Kate and others at the University responsible for these programs.

There is a challenge on the Nike+ site that I thought was pretty interesting. Here is the description, "A quick run around the circumference of the moon averaging 40 miles per week for 170 weeks - you have until January 2012 to complete it - Good Luck" I entered but I think I will have difficulty averaging 40 miles per week. But then again, it is supposed to be a challenge.
