Hello world!

12 January — And especially, hello to my supporters, the people who have put their money and their encouragement behind this big project of mine, and want me to stay in touch as I prepare for it. You’re why I’m blogging! (Another new experience…)

I’ll be writing about my adventures as I do my Central Y workouts 3 days/week, and walk city neighbourhoods and park systems another 3 days/week. When I think about my friend training for the Boston Marathon, or the one who hiked the Chilkoot Trail, I realize this Iceland trek (6 days, 12-17 km/day, 5 nights camping) isn’t that big a deal. But it’s my deal — and yours too, because you’re helping me.

So bear with me while I figure out this blogging thing. This site (like my body) will rapidly improve.

(If you fell on this blog by chance, and don’t know what I’m talking about, check out http://arthritis.akaraisin.com/onjim/icelandpenny.)

’til later!
