Kip Jacobs, a teaching buddy of mine from my former school in Milwaukee, is challenging himself to walk to school each and every day of the 08-09 school year. He probably has a 1.5 mile walk to school, but when you take into account the variable weather conditions that he deals with his goal is quite a feat. We actually had a little competition last year to see who could walk/bike to school the most number of days. The competition sort of fizzled out as we both got wiped out by the tough Wisconsin winter, but in a way we are renewing the challenge this year even though I am in Northern California. So far we are each tied! We both have walked/biked every day this year!
This is a photo of Kip's calendar with an X on each date that he was walked/biked this year.
Anyone out there want to join in this challenge??!!
