    …you don’t know about me.

    Various people, throughout my life, have told me that “I’m walking too fast” when we’re walking together. And, a few months back, it finally got to me and I decided to test it.

    I do like to walk. And, when I can fit it in, I do take a walk whenever I can. Call me Eddie Yost, if you must. Further, at times, I have considered the Jules Winnfield retirement plan as well.

    So, I timed myself over a series of walks – none being less than 2.5 miles and many longer than that. And, the results were the same, consistently, every time.

    I walk at a speed of 4.05 miles per hour.

    Is that too fast? I dunno – guess it depends on who you’re walking with…

      My father in law is a notorious fast, and constant, walker, lol. He actually grew up in Brooklyn and worked as a runner in Manhatten when he was younger. My wife likes to mock him saying that when in NY he refuses to take taxis, stating..”It’s only 50 blocks, we can walk it.”

      I can dig that. I used to walk 20 city blocks, in NYC, without even considering jumping on a subway first. I recall a few times, kickin’ it into a 2nd gear, walking from Rockefeller Center to Penn Station, trying to catch a train to NJ.

      When, of course, if I had taken the subway, I would have been there in 10 minutes.

      This entry certainly a random thought 😀

      I walk a lot too, but probably not as fast as Steve or our faster walkers in NYC. My uncle walks so fast, he’s practically running 🙂

      My speed is somewhere between “tourist” and “NY’er.” Real NY’ers, not transplants. They don’t walk as fast.

      it also depends how tall you are…I don’t consider myself a fast walker by any means, but since I’m a bit taller, my 1 step is about 1.5 steps of a shorter guy who walks fast, so I can keep up.
