About two years ago I started wearing a zip fitbit. I checked my account Thursday, May 4th and discovered that in a span of two years I have walked 4,680,564 steps. That is 2,047 miles. I have earned 713 online daily step awards and 9 Lifetime Distance awards. I have earned badges that represent marathons that I have never hear of, such as, the Penguin March (70 Miles), The London Underground (250 miles) Serengeti (500 Miles) the Great Barrier Reef (1600 miles) and others.
