I went back and started from July 1 - I have gone 115.8 miles so far this month and am close to Buckner, VA. This is going to take a long time!

For my challenge, I live in Maryland and therefore in the Eastern Time Zone.

HMMM I added 5.86 miles today and am still 5.5 miles from Glendale.........maybe on the other side??? Anyway, 55.5 miles logged for the month.

You can only take one step at a time, it is best that the step is forward, not back. But even a backward step is exercise! LOL

Hi Everyone,

I am so impressed with this website. I have logged 68 miles and 12.46 miles from Mechanicsville, VA. My Digi-Walker has a 7-day memory and I enter my miles (2,300 steps each)on Saturday night. I print a copy of the picture of where I am and place it on a core foam so my family can see it. The grandchildren love to see my progress. Question of the Day: Will I ever get out of Virginia? GH

You'd have to slow down an awful lot for those of us who are still in Virginia to catch up with you. Maybe you should turn around and start walking back. We'll meet you somewhere along the way!

I like having "buddies" along the trail to keep me motivated and see how I am progressing. I have my children as my buddies and a couple of others, so it is fun to see how much of America we are seeing.

Another is walking around Australia with me.

If you know the ID numbers for other people, you can add them to your "team" and see their progress along the trail. All of you start at the same place you are on the day you add them. The differences will show as you walk different distances each day.

It is something some people do to keep things interesting.

How many steps are in a mile depends on your stride. I measured my stride and entered it into my Omron pedometer. Now it tallies the miles for me.

For most women, who have a shorter stride than men, a mile is between 2,200 and 2,500 steps. If you are running, your stride would be longer and a mile would be fewer steps.

I set up and account today, and entered my 6.2 miles from yesterday. This looks like lots of fun!

I'm so excited to have joined this website - the virtual walk is so neat. I know I did 10,835 steps yesterday and from my understanding on average a mile is 2000 steps. So I logged in 5.4 miles walked. Does that sound correct?

My cellphone has a section where you can see how many steps around the world you have taken. It's pretty amazing to see that. It's also a great motivator.

I started the walk about 3 1/2 weeks ago and tomorrow will have over 200 miles under my belt - It's a neat way to track your steps.

I love walking 10,000 steps a day, but sometimes it just isn't enough. I like to add my miles together and walk toward something. One of the things I do is log my miles at exercise.lbl.gov

It is a research project by the government to learn about exercise habits. You can walk, run, or bike the trail. It is all "blue roads" which are two lane roads with fields, mailboxes, etc along the trail.

You start at Yorktown in Virginia and end on the Oregon coast. Each day when you log your miles, you see a picture (they took pictures every 1/4 mile on the trail. Along the way, you pass by Monticello, Lincoln's birthplace, cross the Mississippi, visit Yellowstone, climb mountains, and see 4063 miles of the United States.

There is a Spark Team that does just that. Many members join as a team and either travel in tandem or combine miles. I like to walk myself although my children often ask me where I am.

The miles quickly add up although it usually takes a few months to get through each state. It is fun to be going somewhere and not just totaling steps.
