20 Million Steps – 10 Thousand Miles

Over the past five years I recorded 20 million steps on my pedometer. Using the average of 2 thousand steps per mile, the 20 million steps equate to walking 10 thousand miles. In more tangible terms, that’s the equivalent to making two round trips from Washington, DC to San Francisco – on foot.

18 Million Steps – 9 Thousand Miles

This afternoon I reached 18 million pedometer-recorded steps. Over the past five years, I’ve kept track of my daily step count on a spreadsheet and projected when I would reach the next million-step mark. I knew today would be a significant day so I made the most of it.

My 7,500 Mile Walk

Over the past four years, I walked 15 million steps – the equivalent of walking 7,500 miles around the perimeter of the United States. That’s quite an accomplishment, considering I did it while teaching college courses, working at a library, completing a second master’s degree, volunteering and still managing to have time for myself.
