Walk/Run/Swim/Cycle to Jerusalem during Lent!

Jerusalem is 6,000 miles from Ernest Myatt

Lace up those shoes
Grab your family members
Grab your dog (if you have one)
And get to walking, running,
biking, swimming or any other sport you can collect miles

We are challenging ourselves as a church to travel these 6,000 miles during the 40 days of Lent. We want you to log your miles over the next 40 days while you exercise. If  you are not currently exercising now is the time to begin! We encourage you to pray for your friends, fellow church members, social issues, health issues and our country while you rack up the miles. And more importantly, as was pointed  out to me, listen to Jesus while you exercise.

Who can be involved? Everyone! 2,000 steps = a mile! Invite a friend, invite a fellow member to exercise with you.

Report your miles to Craig by Thursday of each week. Text, email or phone call. We will keep a running total of our miles and watch our progression! We want to be there for Easter (April 16th)! We will worry about getting back when we get there. 

Don't know how far you walked, ran or biked? Download a fitness app (great examples are: "Runkeeper", "Walk Your Dog" (app also donates to animal charity of your choosing based on your mileage), "cyclemeter") to your ipod or smartphone. Run the app every time you exercise and track you mileage.

Get started running, walking, swimming, cycling, or any other sport now! A successful trip will be accomplished by us all participating. Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice on the cross for us. Let us never forget this.

Report miles to:
Craig Chrismon
