Several years ago I walked the Honolulu Marathon. I wanted to be fit, and knew this would force me to walk every day plus the longer training sessions on Saturday with the team. I was proud that I accomplished this, even though I was not the fastest walker. The added benefit of training for the marathon was that I was healthy, and did not get a cold for several years afterwards, as I kept up the walking 6 days a week.Since I don’t walk much anymore due to other health issues, I caught a cold, which lasted for two months.

I never thought of walking a marathon! My husband would love this -- he likes crazy long distances. A cold that lasted for 2 months... that's brutal. I hope you are feeling better. Are you able to walk at all now?
