1. Well Done!

I do 35 miles each morning on the exercise bike and shoot for 20K steps per day. 14,691 so far today.

3. Excellent.

I use the tread mill once in awhile, but I find the bike easier. I have a spot for the iPad to spend time on DU and a nice shelf next to it for my coffee. All the creature comforts.

4. Wow! So, you have crossed America FIVE times! Well done! (Especially because Kansas

can get a little boring. "The sun is rise, the sun is set, and here we is, in Kansas yet" -Old pioneer wagon trail saying)

I agree about needing a quality tread mill. We went thru two before this current one.

Are you walking on it or jogging or doing intervals ("wind sprints"?

Again, hurray.

Here's to another six years.

6. May I ask what sort of step counter any of you use? Most seem to be pretty bad at

accuracy, and I'd like to know what veteran walkers use. (I see that one of you uses a fitbit.) I walk nearly every day but would like to start counting steps. Thanks in advance, everyone!
