Our walk to Nauvoo



Our ward is having a competition between the Relief Society (18+yrs) and the Young Women (12-18yrs old). It is to encourage the females in our ward to get fit, and to prepare the YW for their Trek this summer. The goals is as a RS, and as a YW collectively we each walk/ride/run to Nauvoo and back. From our church house and back that is 2555miles. So starting March first we are tracking our miles and we will go till August first. My personal goal is to contribute at least 200miles over the next 22 weeks.

What a great way to get all the ladies involved and get the YW prepared for their trek. Where are they treking to?

What a fun thing! Did they talk about this at church on Sunday? Dang sick kids! I hate missing church!

I don't know where they are trekking to, I guess I should ask.

I am sorry your kiddos were sick Cherie! Obviously they are better now, since I saw you tonight:)

That sounds great! I wonder how long it would take me to claim 200 miles? :-) Maybe I should do it and find out.

Hey, I was blog hopping and found your blog from Cherie's. Wasn't this Nauvoo thing a great idea! Maybe I will be able to add 200 more to yours. We'll see.
