    A friend told me about it a couple days ago. You commit to walking / running ten thousand steps every day in October. Works out to about 5 miles. I would do that probably 20+ days a month anyway--sometimes a lot more, but for sure I have days when I sit on my ass and go nowhere.

    You don't get to bank steps. If I do 20k on Monday, I still have to do 10k on Tuesday.

    Anyone else want to do it?

    I have no idea how many steps I do in a day at school, but as of Monday I'll be tracking them. I don't think it's anywhere near 10k.

    Very rarely. You have to give yourself time to do it.

    If I don't do 10k a day, there is something wrong, I average about 15k per day per week.
