Walking Update

Here is the status of my walking at C. G. Hill Park for the past seven years. My chart shows over 300,000 points. This translates to 5,454 miles walked.

The second chart shows how I compare to other walkers across the United States who log their exercise from walking the same speed interval. Click on the charts to see them enlarged.

See the below text that describes how the fitness program started.

"The President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports was first established as the President's Council on Youth Fitness, on July 16, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower after the President learned the results of a report indicating that American children were less fit than European youth. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy changed the name of the Council to the President's Council on Physical Fitness, expanded the mandate to all Americans as well as youth, and clarified the purpose and function of the Council. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson broadened the Council's mission to include sports and changed the name to the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports."

Have a good week!
