On a recent episode of the Son Rise Morning Show with Anna Mitchell Egan, we discussed an experimental Google Maps feature that displayed a calorie-count indicator for users who selected the “walking” option for directions. This feature was quickly pulled from the app after users protested its use of mini-cupcake icons as a measure of the caloric impact of each walking route.
Our conversation covered digital fitness tools, motivation for getting fit, and the long-term lessons I learned after completing the Notre Dame Trail last summer, covering over 300 miles on foot and by bicycle. Walking has a spiritual aspect as well as a physical one. Get out and take a walk today!
