    According to Wikipedia – that good old trusted website for useless information: It takes : 49,800,0000 steps to walk around the earth

    Guidelines are that we should be doing 10,000 steps per day So I was thinking CHALLENGE TIME lets see how long it would take us to walk around the world!


    So who’s in?

    Add your name to the list and then add your daily steps to the running total

    Running total: 10, 451

    hey, good idea hun.
    its really strange but i found my pedometer out yesterday and decided id wear it from now on to make sure i get my 10,000 steps in every day. yesterday did 15,285.
    thought id walk the school run instead of driving, was further than i thought.
    my aim is 10,000 every day but more would be great.
