"The Million Mile City challenges are contagious. When other people see the results in our workouts, they want to learn more and participate too. We are linked to each other through the [Walker Tracker] app, and we plan our ‘big workout day,’ starting with each team member setting a new goal. It’s so much fun because we end up pushing ourselves a little bit more through each challenge—look how far we’ve come since last November! My family is on the program! Number one statement in my house, ‘It’s okay, I’ll do it because I’ve got to get my steps in!’ Everyone has a 10,000 step goal daily, and we exercise together. “I have exceeded the goals I started with last November, and now I am maintaining them—that’s the key! Staying motivated and keeping what we have worked so hard to achieve! I never want to go back to where I was—I hope these challenges continue—it really works!”
