Virtual Walks are really fun!!!

Totals after the first 5 days (out of 9) in this Virtual Walk

     The last 9 days I have been virtually walking from Canterbury England to Rome, Italy. 34 people from mainly England are participating. We made it the 1200 miles to Rome and are starting to head back. All of our miles count towards the total walked, but they also tell us our ranking among the other walkers. I have moved from 3rd to 6th place over the week. I am a competitor by nature, and this has been fun and motivating to walk daily more than 10,000 steps over 5 miles. I have one more walk today and it is over. We will not make it back to Canterbury as a group, but I will not have to fly from anywhere either. 
     The website I am using for this virtual walk is It is a charity event to raise money for the maintenance of this historical walk. Canterbury to Rome has been a well travelled route since 500 AD. It goes by boat across the English Channel and then through France and the lowest part of the Swiss Alps.

  1. Hi Dr. Blake,

    I commented yesterday on your blog, but it doesn't seem to have posted. I'm so glad to have found your blog for several reasons. I currently have hallux limitus, have a passion for roman history, love hiking and live in San Francisco!

    I just spoke with Miriam at your office to try and schedule an appointment, but she mentioned that you aren't taking any new patients. I hope you might make an exception for me.

    I've been reading lots of your content online, and I'd love to get an appointment if possible. Thank you!

    PS Happy belated birthday!
