Last Saturday I participated in the first training walk but didn't make it all the way to Navy Pier. The wind was blowing something fierce on the lakefront, waves almost splashing me as I made my way South from Belmont. At North Avenue beach I turned West and walked to Clark Street. It had been an hour of painful wind on my face but I kept on. The others were long gone, walking faster than I can. I don't mind. I'll walk at my pace and finish when I finish. It's not a race.
The eTools and the ActiveLink record everything I do, everything I eat, everything I drink. Will they track my words too? My thoughts? Is there a training plan for creating a good essay a week? a powerful poem? If I track how many stories I write a month, does anyone care? How many points do I get for a knock-out piece of writing?
There you go: something to invent, a new App to cash in. Unless it's already out there already but I don't know about it. If any of you know something, please pass the information along.
More tomorrow on tracking and training. And life in general.
