Walk and Roll

This morning Chris pulled a brand new pedometer out of the frosted mini wheats box. Sweet. Bailey and I took it for a spin on the longer version of our nightly walk. According to this nifty little gadget, we walked 5,181 steps.
Various websites suggest that one step is approximately 3 feet in length for the average person.

So:

5,181 x 3 =15,543 feet

15,543/5,280 = 2.94375 miles

Not too shabby for an evening stroll. Bailey probably did an extra third since he was in full cat-chasing mode tonight.

I guess we needed to walk off all the frosted mini wheats we consumed for breakfast.

  1. Hey, I've gotten two of those in my cereal boxes, and must report that sadly. When I've counted my steps and checked them againts the pedometer that the pedometer was incorrect. :( Maybe you got a good one though!

  2. Hmm. It sounds like a pseudo scientific study is required. Were they off by too much or too little?
