Where would you walk?


It’s Week 9 of the Live Healthy Challenge, and we have covered some ground!
Total Activity Time (3/25/14): 32,821 hours and 41 minutes
  • On average a person can walk 4 miles in one hour. That would mean that collectively we have walked 131,287 miles!!!! That’s equivalent to walking the entire circumference of the Earth 5.25 times!!!
Average Activity per Team (3/25/14): 205 hours and 8 minutes
  • Which is about 820 miles walked per team. This is about the equivalent of walking from Iowa City to Dallas, Texas!
