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!
If you could walk anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Enter a destination that you would love walking to or within and be eligible to win one of three Omron HJ-113 Pedometers. All entries must be submitted by midnight, Sunday, March 30th, 2014.

  6. I would hike the highlands of Scotland as well. I would also want to walk Ireland and then go down to Greece and hike and go back to Turkey and hike around Cappadocia. And then on to Peru and Chili for the Andes. And when back in the USA - off to Colorado to do another 14'er. How does that all sound?
