I Finally Made It To Boston!

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Well I started my Virtual trip many many months ago. I guess it was fitting that I started in the Spring March 26th and ended in the Fall October 15! That was a long 7 month walk/bike ride hahaha! I went 1,001 miles. Now in December my DH, me and the 2 pooches will take the trip for real.

I'm still in the middle of my DuPage County Dieter's virtual trip. We are going from Chicago, IL to Seattle, WA! But it is so much easier because I am not doing it alone. Which reminds me of how much I LOVE Sparks because I don't have to lose weight alone!

Thank you friends for helping me on my journey.

MaineRocks, it was funny, but I noticed you were the first person to ever comment on my blogs. It was my second day! I don't really keep in contact with many of the other people I knew in the beginning. I guess our paths went different ways. But I am so very grateful for all my new friends, old friends and soon to be friends emoticon emoticon

    That is great Ruth!!! I know you will enjoy the real trip twice as much! I have been wanting to try that ~ but have never looking into a virtual trip...I guess when I have a few spare moments I can check into it. Problem is ~ I don't know of "one" place that is within reason that I would like to visit...I am still thinking on that one...

    That is funny ~ MaineRocks was one of your first Sparkers, YOU were one of mine! Thank you for all of your support and encouragement!!!

    That is very cool....doing it virtual and then going in real life. You can now experience all the things you 'saw' along the way. I love it!

    That is awesome that you finished and didn't give up. Have a great day and congrats. Give yourself a special treat to cellebrate. I did one earlier in the year with the 55+feamales team. It was kind of fun. That is awesome you are going to take the trip for real. Have fun.
