Reading and Walking in 2018

In April 2013, I started walking laps around the church auditorium while studying or reading. I found this helped me to focus better, and also it was a good way to be a little less sedentary while at work.

Each lap around the auditorium is approximately 74 yards:

I did not think I would be able to repeat my gaudy totals from 2017, but I was hoping to walk 500 miles again in 2018. Without further ado, here are my totals for the year:

Total Laps in 2018: 13,028

Distance per Lap: approximately 74 yards

Total Distance in 2018: 547.8 miles

Total Distance to date: 2532.0 miles

In 2018, I went from Hampton, New Hampshire to Bangor, Maine, then across Vermont to Burlington, and finally out to Lake Placid, New York.

I was correct in thinking that my 2017 total would be hard to repeat, but I was pleased that I was able to accumulate over 500 miles again. Hoping for another 500 in 2019!
