I'd like to join though I don't know how to count my walking as I don't know how many miles 30 minutes to an hour walk would be.

I'd like to join, as well! I already have some running goals, so I'm going to stick to just logging miles I've walked for this challenge.

8/1 - 2 miles

Only Believe, maybe you'd like to try out http://www.mapmyrun.com/. I use it to track my running, walking and all other workouts. You can pre-set your routes from any given point and it will pretty accurately track your distance. I have a heart rate monitor but it only tracks calories burned, duration of activity, and heart rate. Others have a GPS built in.

Map My Run, as mentioned by a previous poster is pretty good. There is also http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/, which I've found I prefer.

If you walk outside, like around your neighborhood, there are apps (like mapmyrun) or websites (WalkJogRun) that you can use to calculate your distance.

Me and my mom are aiming for a mile daily. But we overestimated our distance today. Well now that we know we can fix that lol. Eventually (Though not this month) I will go farther.
