This is the first in a series I hope to host monthly, with the mileage increasing (at least over the summer months!).

For the month of April, move an intentional mile every day. Take a walk. Go for a quick run or light jog. Bike. Swim! Row! Elliptical. Change it up. Maybe you can't get out every day--just make an effort to reach 30 miles by the end of the month.

Track your progress each day (or each mile, if you prefer).

Around the middle of the month (April 13-17th), send a Swap-Bot message to your partner letting them know how far you've come. This is meant to provide mid-month accountability and allow you to course correct as needed. This is part of the swap requirements.

At the end of the month, send your partner your tracking log and at least a few sentences about the swap experience. Also include a flat surprise such as a postcard, notecard, stickers, tea, etc. Check your partner's profile for ideas and avoid allergies, but this is sender's choice.

In sum:
1). Move a mile every day (average)
2). Track your progress
3). Send a mid-month check-in of your mileage to your partner via SB message
4). Mail your log, reflections, and flat surprise at the end of the month

Hope we all enjoy this and come back next month! Let me know if you have any questions.

Looking Ahead
In May, we'll attempt 45 miles.

Sounds like exactly my cup of the tea! (Except for the flat surprise, but I'll survive that.)

Hope everyone is getting a chance to begin! Made it out today and have a little catching up to do, but glad to get moving!

I should have reviewed the instructions better. I wasn't so focused on the 1 mile per day as the 30 in the month... SO, today I will be more focused on getting a mile per day. Oops :)

I should have paid closer attention to the 1 mile per day portion. However, I only missed the 1st so it is all working out :) I'm off to a great start!

@bhindblueeyes -either way you do it is okay! The goal is to move so it averages a mile per day. Glad you are having a good beginning! :)

I have up to now have both 0 miles per day and 6 miles per day. :D

We're in the last week, ladies!! How are we doing? I am sore from playing volleyball yesterday (first time of the season), but it feels good!
