It was earlier this year that I posted about my "Africa" badge that marked the 5K mile mark from FitBit , but this week, this note landed in my inbox. Meaning, I've gone 500 miles in the past five months. 100 miles/month = average about 3 miles/day. All in? 5,500 miles through two devices over three-plus years. Quantified Self FTW.

Just like last year, the fine folk over at +Fitbit mailed me my 'year end summary' of activity. This year, I traveled 1926 miles. And that's with a pretty sad December. My device was on the fritz for the most of part of the month and I was just waiting until Christmas to get a new one. (Which...thanks to my mother-in-law, I did!) To compare to last year: I went 576 more miles this year over last . Some of the stats make a lot of sense. For instance, Tuesday being my most active day sounds right. I play Cardio Tennis every Tuesday morning. I get in 3-4 miles every Tuesday before 7 am. The fact that April was my most active month is interesting to me. I started a new job in April. I went from working from home a lot to commuting on the train and walking from Olgivie to Aon almost every day. June 23rd is a puzzle, though. It is a Sunday. I think it might have been the day that we had the Bird's 1st Birthday party? I must have been hustlin' ar
I started wearing my FitBit on April 27th, 2012. Since then, FitBit tells me that I've traveled 1350 miles - or as they say "more than length of the Tigris River"! The fine folks at FitBit sent out this 2012 summary note yesterday and they included a few little data points that are interesting. Some of them I understand like Tuesday is my most active day. That makes sense because for all of 2012, I've been going to Cardio-Tennis on Tuesday mornings. The month of May was my most-active month and that kind of makes sense in that I had just started to track my activity, so I'm guessing I was motivated to get in those extra stair climbs or a few more steps each day. Looking back at my calendar I can't quite figure out if there were any other dynamics at play that caused me to move a little bit more in the month. Nothing jumps out. Also, the June 7th date - as my most active - puzzles me. That was a few days before the Bird was born so maybe I was r
