Did you know that the city of San Marcos offers weekend hikes lead my their city trail experts?  This would be a great way to learn about the trails available around Palomar while also earning more steps!

Day 4 of the 10,000 steps a day challenge!

Did you know we have 42 people in this challenge?  I think that is absolutely fantastic!  Palomar College employees rock!

The realistic way to build up to 10,000 steps a day:  “The goal of taking 10,000 steps in a day is a rough equivalent to the Surgeon General’s recommendation to accumulate 30 minutes of activity most days of the week. It should be enough to reduce your risk for disease and help you lead a longer, healthier life. But not everyone should start right out trying to get 10K a day. So instead take a comfortable, gradual approach — the 20% Boost Program” ~PBS America’s Walking

So, How did you do today? Do you think you can boost your steps by 20% tomorrow?
