Default Cross Country Vacation! - Blue 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 - We Made It! 5/22/07

Alight ladies..... it's time to put down that mouse and get moving more!

We are currently in Niagara Falls, Ontario which looks like this:


And we're on a mission to get to the Statue of Liberty. Which for those of you that have never ever seen it, it looks like this:


307 miles of fun with all of us! Anyone need to potty before we start our journey?

did my WATP Walk & Kick this morning, so time wise that's 1.5 miles, I can't remember if Leslie gives a mileage on that one.
279.25 - 1.5 = 277.75

I walked for 40 minutes today - wearing my 9 month old (20 pounds) in a front carrier and pushing a double stroller that weighs 10 pounds (with a 4 year old that weighs 40 pounds and a 2.5 year old that weighs 35 pounds) - I worked up a nice sweat!

So, 277.75-2.0= 275.75
