mine doesn't have miles, it has "revolutions"
I looked it up on multiple sites... apparently with my 18 inch stride I need 1120.45 revolutions to reach a mile.
which I find odd because it takes me twice as long to walk that "mile" as it does in my neighborhood.

My milestones:
Babies in 4/05, 12/06, 1/08, 2/10
Abdominal surgeries - (5/08)x2, 2/10, 6/10, 8/10, 9/10, 4/12, and 10/12
March 2010 - 226 (highest non-pg)
Oct 2011 - 165 (only 10 lbs away from goal!)
Broke foot - Oct 2011
Nov 2012 - 165
Feb 2013 - Knee Injury: meniscal tear(healed) w/painful meniscal cyst(atm)
Sept 2013 - 177
Heart surgery - Sept 2013
Jan 2014 - 186

Actually, most ellipticals have a miles read out on their panel. If not, depending on your speed you can figure that "walking" on the elliptical will be a 15 to 19 minute mile.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.

Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.

I use an elliptical, so how would I track distance for my 5k?
Walking around my neighborhood isn't always an option because of the weather or time of day/safety issues.

My milestones:
Babies in 4/05, 12/06, 1/08, 2/10
Abdominal surgeries - (5/08)x2, 2/10, 6/10, 8/10, 9/10, 4/12, and 10/12
March 2010 - 226 (highest non-pg)
Oct 2011 - 165 (only 10 lbs away from goal!)
