100 Missouri Miles Initiative

Did you know that my home state of Missouri was named as the 2013 Best Trails State Award by American Trails?

One of our favorite summer weekend activities is to get up early and head to Smithville Lake in Smithville, Missouri and bike the trails. Here in Missouri, it gets hot and you want to be up early to cycle before the heat sets in. The trails at Smithville are covered with large trees and you never know when you are going to round a corner and find you are sharing the path with a deer.

 This summer Missouri has started a 100 Missouri Miles initiative. Walk, bike, run, skate or however you like to do it, Missouri is encouraging you to get out and visit it's trails.

I signed up this morning. I am so looking forward to hitting the trails and logging my 100 miles. You can sign up too! It is super easy: just go to 100 Missouri Miles. Besides getting my miles in I am looking forward to trying out a few trails I have never been on before. Do you have a favorite?

It has been a long time goal of mine to bike the Lewis and Clark trail here in Missouri. Maybe this is the summer to start? My husband signed up. It is his goal to walk the trails at every trout park in Missouri.

After you sign up and start to walk, it is important to log your activity. You can find 100 Missouri Miles on Facebook and Twitter. I know I am looking forward to seeing all of your photos on Instagram using the #100MoMiles.

Let the summer fun begin!
