Merrell dash glove barefoot orange and grey
Not quite one month later and the shoes are here!  They are real beauties.  I gave them their first trial run last night and was happy with the way that they felt.  Having only worn them once, I can't give an actual review at this point, but I can say that they are as pretty in real life as they are in the stock photos. 

Walking has been going relatively well, but not quite as well as I had hoped. 

On the positive side: I am getting stronger and can walk for much longer distances at a much faster pace than when I started.  My longest walks have been seven miles and I’ve walked that distance twice.  And the one really big positive was accomplishing my goal of walking 50 miles.  It took a bit longer than I had hoped, but I got there. 

The negatives: I have hardly walked outside at all and when I did, it was a lot more taxing than I expected.  Also, finding time to do my long walks has proved quite difficult. 

The race is one month from tomorrow, so I feel like I need to make a big push in these next few weeks.  I want to do all that I can to be as prepared as possible.  This means more walking in general and a lot more walking outdoors.  The weather should continue to grow warmer, so I am hopeful that outdoor walks should be a bit easier to accomplish. 

Wish me luck!
