Default Cross Country Vacation! - Red Team Exercise Challenge Thread

Well let's get this challenge moving shall we! Below is a list of popular destinations and how many miles are between each city. Both the Red and Blue Teams have the same route and milage. The challenge is who can make it to Venice Beach, CA first!

This is how it works. You can use the following measurements to track your mileage:
  • 20 minutes of continuous exercise = 1 mile
  • Pedometers that read milage
  • Exercise equipment that read mileage
  • Mileage you actually walked/ran
You'll start in Niagara Falls, ON end in Venice Beach, CA = 7472 miles total

Simply post your miles as you exercise. Your team leader will be responsible for telling you where you stand and what vacation spot is coming up next!

Niagara Falls, ON ---> Statue of Liberty, New York, NY = 307 miles

New York, NY ---> Dorey Park, Allentown, PA = 80 miles

Forgot to mention.... If you only work out 10 minutes or you have 10 minutes extra from a work out it counts as a half a mile
