It's Idita-Walk Time Again!

Need a little stimulus to keep yourself walking through the doldrums of winter? Try the Idita-walk virtual challenge:

Gold Dredge - Nome, Alaska

From the website;
The Idita-Walk is an event to promote physical fitness in the spirit of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. The Iditarod Sled Dog Race is 1049 miles long beginning at Anchorage, Alaska and finishing in Nome, Alaska.

To complete the Idita-Walk, simply walk an average of 30 minutes a day for 35 days between February 1, 2013 to March 31, 2013 for a total of 1049 minutes (any combination of minutes and days will work - just reach 1049 during the 59 day event!).
So, folks, you only have to walk 1049 minutes in the space of two months wherever you wish! You keep tally on their online chart and get a nice lapel pin upon finishing. You can also buy shirts if you feel so inclined.
It's only $10 and the proceeds go to youth and boy scout projects and camps in the Nome area. Even your dog can enter!!!
Some folks keep track on a map of the Iditarod route to see how far they've gone, so to speak.
Take the challenge!
