“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” – Lao Tzu
Today the Pedroza family did our first Grand Canyon Training Walk. As far as both speed and distance goes it was terrible. 2.18 miles in 47 mins. That comes out to about a 21:30 min/per mile pace (If you want to see the map go to http://runkeeper.com/user/elderp/activity/206620605). Yeah, we are not setting any speed records anytime soon, BUT, it was a start. And start is a good thing. We are hoping that gradually over one year we will work on this very humble beginning and increase our pace and distance to the point where we as a family will get to the bottom of the grand canyon and back again. It is very hard to contemplate this task at the moment, but I know we can do it.
