500 Mile Walking JourneyWelcome What do you do when you are retired? You WALK!!, You HIKE!!!, You do 5K's . That's what this blog is all about. I have always wanted to go to Spain and walk the Camino de Santiago. I'm not sure if I will ever get there, but if I do this is going to be a great way to train for it. My husband recently retired and has agreed to walk 500 miles with me. We live in Northeastern Nevada, it's beautiful with open landscapes, mountains, lakes, and we experience all four seasons here. I don't know how long this journey will take, but we're up for the challenge. Visit us often and see how we're doing on our 500 Mile Walking Journey.
We have only just begun and the journey will be filled with lots of wonderful stories. Share this blog with friends and create your own walking journey. Comment, like and share in the comments. We would love to create a walking community with like minded people. Be Inspired, Jean

The first days of the walk were the hardest for me. I got blisters, sunburned, and my lower back and hips were sore. My body wasn't use to walking 3 miles everyday. We decided to stick close to home for the first week, just walking around our neighborhood. We walked around the Spring Creek Marina because its close, flat, and, it also is a wonderful place to see the migrating birds. Later we added a bit of an incline with walking up the hill for breakfast at JJ's and picking up our mail on the way home. A 3 mile walk for us will take us an hour, sometimes longer if we stop for photo's and water.
This is a journey, not a race. Time only matter when we are racing the 5K's. Take time to relax in nature, en…
500 Mile Walking Journey with Kerry and Jean Let's Get Walking! It's Progress Report Time After returning from our 5k in Rexburg last week, we spent the next week preparing for company. We went to the California Trail Center. We walked around their outdoor exhibits, inside the museum. Kerry and I checked out a dirt trail we will be doing in the future. http://www.californiatrailcenter.org/ This week we only managed one walk around the Spring Creek Marina. Kerry's new trash picker upper has come in, he now picks up trash on our walks. It's amazing how much trash he picks up everyday!! We are so close to our 50 mile goal.
Where would we be if we were doing the
Camino de Santiago walk in Spain.
If I were to walk this path, I would start in France, and do the French Way.
