I just wanted to let everyone know about a cool part of the prevention.com website that I found. You can put in your town and map out a walking route and it tells you how far that route will be. I used to get in my car to run down to the store and post office. Today I walked instead. Went to the store to update my powerball ticket and to the post office to get yesterday's mail. Had to count my steps in my head because I still haven't bought a pedometer, Made 1900 steps and when I got home I went to Prevention.com/mywalkingmaps and input the route I took. Turns out it was .93 miles, so the average of 2000 steps per mile seems pretty accurate. I live in a very small town Kimberly, Idaho only 2.500 people, and if my town is on this website yours should be too. Let's Get Walking Spark People. Spring is on the way!!!!
