This year, we haven't done our best at writing updates on our progress with our resolution mileage updates. We also spent a good portion of the year struggling to meet our mileage goals. Between starting the year with two dogs who were just starting to walk together and lots of life happening, getting in the 2.74 miles we needed every day wasn't easy.
The beginning of the year is always a bit slow with snow and ice and sometimes extreme cold, so I wasn't worried right away. We got 55.41 miles in January. February was a little slower with only 29.1 miles. Things started to pick up in March when we got 65.83 miles. By April, I thought we were back on track when we got 92.88 miles. The good mileage continued with 100.87 miles in May, 113.87 in June, and 104.29 miles in July. But we'd needed quite a few miles to make up for the first three months of the year. With some travel and school starting again in August, we fell behind once again with only 83.89 miles. September brought more routine and we were able to get 94.23 miles. After an equally good month in October with 94.87 miles, we're just just a tin little bit behind schedule.
October also brought our most fun walk--our annual walk through the arboretum to see the Scarecrow Row and the setup for the Goblins in the Garden event.
We have 58 days left to get 161.12 miles to reach our 1000 mile goal. That means we need 2.77 miles each day for the rest of the year to get 1000 miles for the year. We've been successful at getting at least 3 miles every day for most of the last two months, with a couple bigger days to make up for slower days, so I'm confident that we'll reach our goal. We might not exceed it, but at the moment, we're on track to reach it right on schedule.
