Pueblo Active Community Environments (P.A.C.E.)

Walking Challenge: Walk 100 Miles in 2015 by St. Patrick’s Day!

Join PACE - Pueblo Active Community Environments - in this NEW challenge to get Puebloans moving!  The challenge is to walk 100 miles from January 1st, 2015 thru St. Patrick's Day.  What a great way to ensure you get some daily activity during the cold, dark months in the beginning of the New Year!

If you break it down, you only need to walk about 1.32 miles a day.  You may be surprised to see you are already doing it, but if you focus on it, and track it, you may stay out longer and go even further! 

All types of walking counts - indoors, outdoors, hiking, walking the dog, or even walking on a treadmill.  You don't even have to do it all at once - as long as you hit the goal by March 17th. 

Tips:  For beginners:  Take a 5 minute walk / 3 times a day and you can get in a 15 minute mile.  If you are more advanced, challenge yourself to 5 miles a day!  The point is, as a community we can help each other to be healthier and happier by encouraging each other to get moving!  You may choose to use your Endomondo app, or log your activity manually.

There will be announcements on where the Final mile celebration will be held on St. Patrick's Day!
