17 Weird and Wacky Ways We Hit Our Daily Step Goals

We’re all about hitting our step/Breeze goals here at Runkeeper, no matter what it takes! We asked our employees and community to share their most interesting methods for getting all the steps in. The results were pretty hilarious, even if we do say so ourselves. Check ’em out!

10. “I walk to the grocery store. Gets in 2 miles of walking and since I can’t carry a ton of stuff I wind up making multiple trips per week.” – @Chris_Drouin


11. “If walking is too far, I’ll just cycle. It’s still better than taking the train.”@jimredding

15. I hide my car keys forcing me to walk more! – @CourtCDavis


16. “walked to the park with the kids, then took two steps forward and two steps back while I pushed my youngest on the swing. It looked like I was doing the cha cha but got an extra tenth of mile that way! It only looked strange to others because there was no cha cha music playing!” – Lucy

17. “It was 102F. Went to the mall without a wallet and “window shopped.” I went into every store and walked all the way to the back of the store and out. I did so on both floors. Less expensive than the movies to enjoy the air conditioning!” – Meastra
