Today I walked my 500,000th step. I knew it was close so did a clever sum in my head and kept an eye on my pedometer. It would have been awesome to be somewhere magnificent at the half way point, but I was actually half way down the steps on the way to the shopping centre.
It is incredible that I could have walked so far so quickly. Helped by a regular 8,000 odd steps in the early mornings, a few long days when I have racked up the count and lots of slogging through the streets, the miles have mounted up.
Halfway to a million, and halfway to finishing this fabulous challenge. I know for sure that once it is over the habit is set for life now. I will be walking forever, thank you Diabetes UK for setting this up, it is a blast.
