I took 8992 steps at work today.
Plus 8 hours of shoving stuff on shelves. (Crappy job, pays bills, so its good enough for now)
Beats the hell out of being unemployed and sitting around on my ass all day.
Anyway, the thing was something like $3 at wallyworld (over in the sporting goods section), comes in a nice tactical grey. Counts steps, can set to your step length so it will tell you miles (or kilometers, if your brain thinks in metric).
Just thought I'd pass along a cheap but useful little tool.
I was looking at one of those just the other day. Maybe I'll get one yet.
