February has slowed my march, but we must solder on. I logged a total of 89 miles in February, 11 miles short of my goal of 100 miles. In February, I logged zero miles for 10 days, while in January it was only 7 days, and in December 11 days. I have logged 194 miles since January 1, and I am now just past the snowy city of Rolla. I searched google for a picture of the snow in Rolla, but all I found was pictures of he massive crash in I44, so I will just go with my own snow pictures from yesterday.
I walked 7 miles the morning of the last day of February. I started out about 9:30 without my camera because the battery was dead. I walked to Dan's gate, bemoaning no camera, then returned and got the big camera. I just enjoy walking with the camera so much more than no camera walks.
We got about 3 inches all together, and then some freezing rain. The net says we have freezing rain now, but I do not see anything falling. My thermometer stands at 31 degrees.
George took us to the store about 2 pm yesterday, so we have plenty of food. We all went and we planned on feeding kids at Sonic, but Sonic had a snow day. I made burgers and fries, but Hannah was not impressed.
Then, at 5 pm I walked up to see about Helen's house, which was warm and cozy with running water in all the right places, and walked on out the road for a mile, making yesterday's total 9 miles, the week's total 22 miles, and the month's total 89 miles.
I am supposed to go for my checkup tomorrow, snow permitting, where I will see if the walking is helping with the numbers.
Pictures to follow.
