Walking across the country (virtual challenge)

Thursday, August 21, 2014

As you may have read in a previous blog my spark friend M-BRUNER told me she plans to "walk" from her house in Pleasant View (near Salt Lake City, UT) to my house in Murfreesboro, TN. She asked me how far it would be so I told her milage depends...if she is "walking" along I-70 W (1,751.87 miles) or I-80 W (1,755.57 miles)!

I liked this challenge so much I now plan to "walk" to her house as well!

That said, we opted for the I-70W route because it was longer. Extra steps seemed like the more ambitious way to go!

As of yesterday she reported in that she has walked a little over 10 miles. That means she is out of Pleasant View and am on her way!!!!!

As of yesterday, I have walked 32.63 miles according to my Fit Bit. Looks like I may reach her house before she gets to mine!

    Wow, what a cool way to track it. Kind of gives a destination rather than just "walking"

    Raina - you make me laugh!!!!! I did some mental math while I was in the shower this morning. I figured if I walked 5 miles a day (12,000) steps, I should get to your house in about 351 days. So I walked 8600 steps (3.69 miles) today and realized that 5 miles a day is a bit of a stretch for me. Then I realized it might take me a couple of years to get there. You might have to pick me up and carry me on your way back home!!!! emoticon
