April Rueb, a resident of New York City, recently set a goal to get in 20,000 steps per day. She was already accomplishing 10,000 steps per day without really even trying. She lives 2.5 miles from her office, and walking is the most reliable form of transportation in the city with the added bonus that it is free.
However, she felt a little guilty that she was getting her 10,000 steps without putting forth any real effort. She had friends who didn’t walk to work who were also getting in 10,000 steps, and she decided that she would see what would happen if she doubled her daily steps. Here are five things that happened to Rueb when she started accomplishing 20,000 steps per day.
