Nearly 1,000 MidSoutherners have registered for the Step-a-thon. Thanks for joining the effort to jump start, or walk, your way to a healthier lifestyle. Saturday I ran 10 miles which registered nearly 20,000 steps. So, I cheated and took at break on Sunday. Monday, I didn't have time to walk before work. Instead of sitting around during my dinner break I changed into my workout gear, strapped on my IPOD and headed for the track. I ran 3 miles and walked 1 mile. By the end of the night I have 10,674 steps.
There are fun ways, aside from walking, to get your 10,000 steps. Our Meterologist Nicondra Norwood says she logged more than 15,000 steps Saturday night while out dancing with friends. So, you can mix it up.
