Pedometers at dawn!

Over the past couple of months I have fallen out of my regular gym routine and have been feeling pretty bad about it. I've packed on more el-beez than I'd like because of my neglect. But this week I will get back into the swing of things. Blog buddy, fellow Neil Diamondphile, and unfortunate Michigan fan srah has thrown down the gauntlet: a month-long competition to see who can get the highest average stepcount. The loser must publicly concede via a Blog Post of Shame.

14 days of walking for jmblya at Walker Tracker - a step tracker for pedometer enthusiasts

This competition started yesterday, with me in the lead. But I only walked 5,535 steps, which is much lower than what she usually walks. She must be off to a slow start. Today was much better for me, as I've been dogsitting my sister's dog Sadie, who I took to two (small) parks and around the block today. Tomorrow I'm taking her around Westhampton Lake at U of R before I relinquish her.

Then it's just me and the motivational words of Conan the Barbarian (in regards to what is best in life): To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their women.

I am also accepting sponsors. All donations will go to the Human Fund.

I don't have any lamenting women!

Then that makes my job 1/3 easier.
