Idita-Walk Challenge Complete!

Our own Idita race!
We did it! Mom and I competed our 1049 minutes of walking between Feb. 1st and March 31st! If you remember from my post Team Dogventurers: Idita-Walk Challenge a group of us dog bloggers challenged ourselves to be active during these long winter months.

The challenge worked great because Mom didn't get lazy and not take me out for our afternoon walk (like she is doing now). And I have to admit the weather has not been cooperating. We just saw on WGN TV Tom Skilling's weather forecast that our area got 16" of snow in just February. But, we have been gaining lots of sunlight so its easier for mom, I mean me, to get up at 6 a.m. and head for the park.

Here's me in action on one of our "nicer" days!

In addition, it was a good thing we got the walk done over a week ago! We had another big storm on Tuesday that brought lots of freezing rain. Since then the sidewalks have been a slippery mess. Mom had lots of close calls but hasn't actually hit the ground, yet, so far so good this year Mom!

Anyway, mom and I would like to thank for motivating us and to for coming up with the nifty Team Dogventurers badge.

Here's to taking walks with your Doxie (mix)!
Love Dolly


  1. Aw I wish I knew about this challenge. It would have kept me active and (sort of) train for a 10km marathon I'm doing in May for children with cancer.

    I'm glad you and your mom were able to finish the challenge. Congratulations :)

    1. Its not too late! You have until March 31st to try and complete it! It is completely doable no excuses!

  2. Wow, you did it already, I am impressed! Plus it looks like you had lots of fun out there, and I think that is part of the point, isn't it? I see on your ticker that you are still going....that is great too. Hope your weather gets better too, so you can continue to get out there. :) We have a ways to go yet, but you will be our encouragement and inspiration!

    1. Thanks so much! Good luck finishing! Love Dolly

  3. The weather has been more mild here this year that it was the same time last year too. The silly trees and bulbs think it is spring already. We have had plenty of chance to observe the "early spring" while out for our walks :)

    Way to go on the challenge!

  4. Well done Dolly. Stay safe and warm. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Dolly, you and your mom deserve huge congratulations! Well done, that's PAWSOME, especially given the February you had!



  6. Congratulations Dolly on finishing the Idita-Walk! You Rock!!

  7. Congratulations Dolly! That is a lot of walking you did!
