My Story

California smoky air

Sunday 13th Sep
My first week of the Challenge has gotten off to a slow start - the wildfires in California have caused smoky air for the past 3 weeks, with only 3 or 4 days clear enough to hike/run outside. The AQI (Air Quality Index) has been in the Unhealthy to Very Unhealthy zones for the past week. With COVID, the gyms are closed. This means no outdoor walking and no available treadmill. I've been averaging 5000 steps a day by going to work and walking in the halls of the hospital. Hoping we have clearer skies next week so that I can start walking outside and catching up with my steps. 

The photo was taken Friday at 5pm. Normally you can see green hills of the Santa Cruz Mountains at this stoplight.

Thank you to my Sponsors
