Because I would walk one hundred miles...

Because every challenge needs a cheesy motivational song, here's a catchy tune to get you walking (or running...far from this post):

100 Miles (to the tune of 500 Miles, by The Proclaimers)

When I wake up yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the girl who hops on her treadmill
When I go out yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the girl who’s not standing still

If I fall down yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the girl who hops right up anew
And if I falter yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the girl who stopped to tie her shoe

‘Cause I would walk 100 miles
And I would walk 100 more
Just to be the girl who walked 100 miles
So you’ll say I’m hard core

When I'm working yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the girl who's walking on her break
And when the others go out for sushi and tea
I'll walk until every muscle starts to ache

When I come home yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the girl who walks back home to you
And if my feet smell I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the girl who stepped in doggy doo

‘Cause I would walk 100 miles
And I would walk 100 more
Just to be the girl who walked 100 miles
So you’ll say I’m hard core

When I'm walking yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the girl who’s walking ‘til I’m through
When I'm dreaming yes I know I'm gonna dream
Dream about the time I walked - woo-hoo!

‘Cause I would walk 100 miles
And I would walk 100 more
Just to be the girl who walked 100 miles
So you’ll say I’m hard core

I could only remember the chorus to 500 MILES, so I went to YouTube ... now I can't get the tune out of my head; thanks softdrink!
