    Are you wearing step counters and counting all walking done during the day, or just walking that you do on top of regular errands and walking around the house?

    I'm just going to use the miles I walk on the treadmill or when I go outside for walks..........I've actually have given up on pedomoters...... I haven't been able to find one that lasts and that doesn't give me steps when I"m sitting down:rotfl:...............

    How does it work? I am a loooong ways from the World but determined to get the half marathon done (finally) in 2011.

    I am 659 miles from my door to the Caribbean Beach Resort (Aruba Village ;))

    Today I walked 3 miles.

    1/1: 659-3=656
    1/2: 656-3=653

    January Total: 6 miles
    Total: 6 miles; 0.9% complete :rotfl:

    Go to google maps or mapquest or something and use the "get directions" feature. Start with your house and end with someplace in WDW. It will give you the number of miles from your house to your selected location in WDW.

    Then, just walk/bike/swim that number of miles. It helps if you divide the total miles by 365 to see how many miles/per day you need in order to pace yourself.

    I'm in for this challenge.

    I have 2/1095 to Fort Wilderness as of today.

    I have been wearing my pedometer for a while now. I will be counting what I do during the day. I have been averaging 4000 while I have been on vacation. Will be trying for 10,000 starting next week.

    I am 2011.66 miles from my house to the Magic Kingdom in Disney World.

    Now that is a challenge, and it would take me at least a year to do it.

    But you know, maybe I will try to see if I can get it finished by the time I leave for the Disney marathon next year - January 6, 2011.

    It averages about five miles a day, but if I counted every step...

    Great idea though.

    I would like to join. I had also joined on the other thread. There are 1154 miles from my front door to Hollywood Studios. I started tracking Jan 1. I am only tracking the mileage from my workouts using my pedometer watch.

    So far I am at 3.6/1154.

    I had plans to go on a long walk today. But I feel like trash so I don't see it happening today. :headache:
