The World Vision International Walking Challenge is over!
For the 30 days of November, I stepped briskly about DC and other places (like Richmond – pictured), pitting myself against all walking challengers.
What did I get for my efforts? A 2nd place finish and victory for my monthly goal!
November Goal: Finish with 500,000 total steps.
I walked 683,584 total steps in fact. Or an average of 22,786 steps per day. Try it, it’s not easy. Also, I had to step up my game during the last week, since the person in 3rd was gunning for me, using the notorious ‘training for a marathon’ scheme. Nope, didn’t work.
Walking Challenge Top 5
1st = 772,883 steps*
2nd (Me) = 683,584
3rd = 663,644
4th = 613,308
5th = 602,601
* I understand the 1st place person put a treadmill to good use. I did not. I was outside, in the fresh air, hiking or exploring.
My Daily Breakdown
- 30,000+ steps in a day (8 times)
- 20,000+ (11)
- 15,000+ (7)
- 10,000+ (3)
- Sub-10,000 (1)
I also made a second goal, about helping Capital Bikeshare move their bikes around the city or some such.
November Goal #2: Finish with 500 total Bike Angel points.
Result: Failure! Epic! 347 points total.
I basically quit this goal with a week left in November because I traveled to Charlotte and Richmond. But up to that point, I was definitely in the conversation for reaching this goal as well, on a pace of 15 points per day (I would’ve needed a pace of 16.67 points per day).
Now step out and walk!
