Where shall I walk today? Hmmm…there are an infinite amount of choices!
Web walking or virtual walking is a way to log steps, minutes, or miles to walk virtually anywhere. All you need is the internet and a website and you are off. As you login your daily walking data, the site tracks your route and tells you where you have walked on a simulated route. This is an imaginary way to determine your distance, have a little fun and maybe see the world with the help of a computer screen.
Here are some interesting places to choose or explore web walking…
A walking club with a membership. Trophies, trails, tracking and a variety of challenges from around the world.
A free site which uses the American discovery trail. Provides logs, maps and rewards. View links for milestone segments to view and read about completed parts of the trail.
A free website to encourage walking in the state of Illinois. Login, log miles and virtually or as a tourist on foot, visit some of the notable towns, parks and trails in Illinois.
Don’t be a recluse, get out there and spin a walk! (I couldn’t resist!)
