    My school is participating in a "Walk Across Texas" wellness event. The object is to gather an 8 person team and log enough miles over 8 weeks to cover the distance across texas....about 800 miles.

    Have any CF'ers heard of this or participating?

    This is dumb unless you're actually walking across Texas for real. I better be seeing a bunch of kids out there in 100 degree heat between Austin and El Paso.

    I'll take that as a "no"

    It's a wellness program. You can convert any activity to miles with the activity conversion calculator.

    that's impossible. ;) each person walks 800 miles in 8 weeks...or combined?

    someone is going to have really bad foot blisters, sores, and chafing.

    no running allowed?

    i'm out.

    i can do about 40 miles a week...but not 100 a week. i have to work as well...so i'll need a ride ride to and fro, bro. :p

    As a team walk 800 miles...any activity is counted. There is a converter on the website that converts activity to equivalent steps.

    Running, steps, and cycling count as actual miles. There is a calculater for swimming, kayaking, yard work...and many others.

    Just get them all fibit's and have them shake 'em while they watch TV. It works. After a 1 hour show it will show like 10,000 steps.
