Walking Challenge Complete

The walking challenge I was participating in completed on July 4th. The idea of the challenge was that between Memorial Day and Independence Day, each team of 5 members would walk the equivalent of the distance between Oakbrook, IL and Washington DC or 687 miles. My share of the distance should then be 137.4 miles. In fact, I logged 343,600 steps or 171.8 miles. Even though one of our members dropped out after week 4, our team completed the challenge in 8th place. During week 4 of the challenge I actually made the top 20 walkers list which was one of my personal goals. I intend to keep walking beyond the challenge goal. I feel healthier for it and it aids my weight management.
