Triathlon in a Month: Final week…

…plus a bit more as this incorporates the fourth week as well as the three days ending the month. With the last day of July now complete, this urban hiker achieved her goal and a bit more.

The original goal of this urban hiker (pedometer geek) set for the Healthcode.org’s Triathlon in a Month was 100 miles. That milestone was achieved by the end of the third week of July, and this urban hiker decided to increase the goal to another 35 miles.

As of July 31, that goal was not only met, but exceeded with a total of over 141 miles. Most of the triathlon’s miles were through walking, but there were a few miles obtained through other activities like biking.

More important than the mileage was the donations made to various charities. My choice of charities was the American Diabetes Association.

BP: On another subject altogether, this week’s Haiku Foundation’s column A Sense of Place published one of my haiku on the subject of The Shore-taste. It is as follows:

Lake Erie catch

lemon squeezed

onto fried perch

-Nancy Brady, 2018

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Way to go!
    It’s not much but I saw my first Monarch at home this afternoon.
    welcomed home
    And I finished another quick murder mystery.
    On the way home stopped at an antique store and found another prism crystal in a shape I didn’t have… Simple joys 🙂

    Oh also while away we saw dolphins playing in the ocean – jumping and spiraling too!
