If you keep walking for an hour, and don't stop to take any rest, your own two legs will carry you about 4 kilometers. You'll be able to go farther if you run, but you'll probably have to keep stopping to get your breath back. It would take an ordinary garden snail more than three days to get as far as you can walk in an hour. But even if you stay in bed all day, you will travel about 2.5 million kilometers. Why? That's how far the earth moves through space in 24 hours, as it goes around the sun. Have you wondering these things?

Nice analogy there my friend, never thought of it that way. So as we speak an hour of myLotting is equivalent to 100+km of walking, he he. I love walking, specially now that the fare is so high, I would rather walk. Our house is located almost 4 blocks to the main thoroughfare, instead of riding a pedicab I always walk it out. Luckily my kids school is just a block away so I'm training them in a way to love walking. Good day and have a nice time.

Exactly friend. Walking is really getting "IN" right now. I have observed this day that traffic along the highway is minimal. Also, other people going to gym nearly their house just walk unlike before they use their autos.
