Not really worthy, but I've been laughing about the title of this challenge ever since it began. And I'll take a good laugh over everything.

Also interesting that not only did Fitts come in 15th out of 140, but (according to my wife) he apparently was ranking much higher before his trip to China. Hard to imagine how difficult it is for a U Prez to get much free time to exercise.

Still, Fitts was doing 14k or so steps per day for a month. Not too shabby for anyone. Most days I am in the 10-12k range and I’m retired so it’s not like I have a killer schedule like he does. The person who won is a freak.

Apparently he didn't run a single step of it. Started walking like crazy on March 1 with the sole intent of winning. Took a vacation day on March 31 and got up at 5 am in order to walk 100K in a single day to reach a million :shock:
