The Journey of a Thousand Miles…

…begins with a single step. This pedometer geek hasn’t been too vigilant this year about reporting either the miles or the steps made throughout the months. Nor has there been any blogging about the books read and challenges attempted and/or met, but I digress.

Having said that, this pedometer geek decided to continue the challenge of walking 1000 miles as her friend in Great Britain has been doing. Actually, based on the total mileage from last year, this pedometer geek upped the year’s goal to 1500 miles.

As of yesterday, August 27, the goal of 1000 miles was met. Breaking it down by months, the miles and steps were as follows:

January: 108 miles     256,113 steps/46,582 aerobic steps

February: 109 miles   258,063 steps/52,936 aerobic steps

March: 135 miles       318,824 steps/79,457 aerobic steps

April: 143 miles         322,601 steps/36,275 aerobic steps

May: 123 miles          291,422 steps/24,342 aerobic steps

June: 131 miles          312,328 steps/34,789 aerobic steps

July: 139 miles          327,606 steps/21,585 aerobic steps

August: 112 miles (so far)

During the first seven months, there were 129 days in which the goal of 10,000 steps was met. Four of the seven months, the overall goal was met and a few of’s Million Mile Month challenges were also met.

Now, the pedometer geek has to complete the other 500 miles before the end of the year.



About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    I’ve slacked off this summer. There was a contest for our health insurance in the spring and I gave it my all… and it just took up too much time. So now I’m happy to make 5 miles a day and some days I’m not even doing that. I’ve been getting at least the minimum of 5,000 sometimes 10,000. But I’m just not worried anymore about getting 15,000 steps a day. I’m still active but I’m done with overdoing it.

    We are about at the same mileage this month 🙂
    Keep up the good work and enjoy life!

  2. Well, I averaged over 10,000 steps in August, but definitely slacked off yesterday when we drove six hours round trip to see the newest member of our family. My younger son and his wife just had their second child, a boy named Oliver who joins his brother Matthew. Now, that is enjoying life (holding a newborn child in one’s arms). ~nan

    That and getting to meet friends…see you in September
