Project America Run 26/81 Fitness Challenge
Mike's on his way from International Falls, MN to Galveston, TX. Before leaving, he taped this one-minute YouTube video encouraging people to exercise for 26 minutes daily for 81 days. As you'll recall, he'll be averaging 26 miles over that time, so yeah, he has a little credibility.
It's already done wonders for me. Yesterday, I was having a rotten day setting up my new internet service. The installer was here for two and a half hours (he was a nice guy named Allyn, of all things), but later I endured two more calls to tech support (one was a 20 minute wait followed by "it's not our problem"). No internet and no solution in sight. You can imagine my frustration level. So I went out for a 26 minute walk, came back in, and figured it out almost immediately.
Dr. F. said she's in. My wife and I, and numerous family members are in, too. It's not too late for anyone else to join in and go to Veteran's Day.
Check out the video. A great case for getting active!
