I'm in the mood to do something different next year so it's time to get our collective butts moving again so beginning Saturday, January 1, we will be starting a virtual hike across North America. If you don't have a pedometer, you should definitely ask for one for Christmas!
Each "walker" can choose how they wish to ring up the mileage (walk, run, cycle, kickboxing, dancing, skate, roller-blade - any form of exercise is good). Here's a website that shows you how many steps per minute different activities are: walking.about.com/od/measure/a/stepequival
Please go to your personal Spark appointment book and enter a reminder to submit your total weekly steps on the next Saturday of each week throughout the coming year.
Once I get the total steps from everyone, I'll convert them to miles and post an update of where we are in North America with information about that location (if we happen to land somewhere one of you live, perhaps you could post some information about it, too).
If you miss a week, don't fret but remember that the more walkers we have the faster we will complete the tour. Goodies will be given for various reasons, not just to the person who goes the farthest. Get your shoes shined, your passports in hand (for crossing borders between Canada, the US, Mexico, etc. and be ready for our first destination - I promise this will be fun!
To get an idea of how many people might participate, post here.
