    I love this challenge, since I walk a lot -- I'm hoping to get out walking soon. 30 degrees is my cutoff for walking, and its just been too cold. But if we can count minutes, this will encourage me to get out on my ellipitical - cold or not!

    But my challenge will be:

    Missouri, 295 miles


    Jackie - did I do this right?

    Welcome to the group, Des! There's no time limit everyone can start when they want! Plus, yes you can track your miles using your Fitbit!

    Also if anyone wants to use a ticker, here's the link:

    Being a true Washingtonian I am walking across Washington or 335 miles! I will be doing walking and elliptical for most of my "walk" and am hoping for a few warm days to add some bike miles. I will keep a running record starting with January 1, 2015 and see how long it takes me to reach my goal.

    Thanks Jackie for the challenge. B)

    ** If I do a circuit workout I will count every 15 mins as 1 mile. That's about my walking pace. 4 mph or 1 mile every 15 minutes.

    I'm in for Rhode Island. It's so cold out I need extra incentive to exercise since walking outside hasn't been a good option.

    Sure it includes hiking up and down the mountains! I'm looking forward to us relocating back to Washington State to get some hiking in!

    I hear you needing extra incentive about getting outside in the cold, :)

    Hi Jackie! Saw this challenge in one of your statuses and thought I'd join in on the fun.

    Since I'm a Marylander, I'm going to start out with Maryland - 215 miles. I'm also going to give myself a time goal of May 31st to push myself to get those miles.

    Most of my miles will be done on the treadmill/elliptical for now. Hopefully will get outside some once the weather gets better!
