Walking around the world

The average person (moderately active) takes around 7,500 steps/day.

If this was maintained daily through the age of 80, you will have walked about 216,262,500 steps throughout your life.

You would average about 1,300 to 1,500 miles a year, and about 3.7 miles a day.

Let’s do the math.The average person, with an average stride, living until 80 years old, will walk the distance of about 110,000 miles.

To put this in perspective, the circumference of the earth is 24,901 miles at the equator.This means that you would walk FIVE times around the Earth! WOW!

Now just think about adding extra running, walking and hiking miles you do for exercise.

For instance, if you ran or walked a 5K (3 miles) a day, 5 days a week, that would add 15 miles a week, 78 miles a year and 39,000 miles in 50 years!

Those are all extra miles added to your 110,000 lifetime miles! You could travel around the world SIX or SEVEN times! Even more!
