It's sometimes difficult to know how far you've gone when you are out there moving, especially if you don't have a pedometer. I've recently rediscovered a wonderful website that can help with that. Walk Jog Run allows you to find a starting point (anywhere in the country), plot a route and save it. You can even print your routes to take along with you for reference.
I'm very fortunate to live in an area where we have hike/bike paths so I do get out there on a regular basis. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my regular walk with Tobi (our dog) was 2.1 miles. Whether you are out there for a walk, a jog, or a run, just get out there and get moving. It's good for you.
