400K To Prepare For May – Day 18 (April 22nd, 2019)

Day 18 was a 50,000 steps drop in participation, unfortunately.  We also dropped to as low as 8 challengers.  Maybe some people have just not yet had time to report, and I REALLY hope that is the case, but if we stay at the drops we are seeing, we will be doing good to hit 4 million steps, much less 5 million.  So, I am asking everyone who takes the time to read this….ASK OTHERS TO JOIN!  It doesn’t matter if they won’t hit 400K steps.  We just need help to get to 5 million steps.

This also applies to anyone who has been participating previously, but has dropped off.  It is NEVER too late to start back up.  Get in the game, join us!

On the bright side, we did get to 3 MILLION STEPS!

Here are the results from Day 18 of the 400K To Prepare For May Challenge:

Total Steps for Day 18:  97,786

Total Steps so far:  3,038,862

400K To Prepare For May – Day 17 (April 21st, 2019)

Day 17 was almost identical to Day 16, with only 24 fewer steps than the previous day.  Great numbers, and glad to see the performance!  We should surpass 3 million steps on Day 18!  We still continue to dip in total participant numbers, however, so we will see.

400K To Prepare For May – Day 15 (April 19th, 2019)

Day 15 was yet another single day steps low for us.  Would a video of me pleading for more steps help?  No?  Okay then….guess I will just have to step it up myself, and lead by example.  Or plead.

Where are you at?  Why don’t you have any numbers up?  It’s pretty easy to do…let me know if you want to participate in us reaching 93 million steps!  Or 3 million steps, even….if you want to have pedestrian goals….

400K To Prepare For May – Day 12 (April 16th, 2019)

Day 12 was the post-2 million steps let down.  Really low steps.  My fault for not keeping the posts up to date…maybe the 2 million steps goal notification would have caused more of a charge to hit it harder.
