the end of a good friend

here’s a sad thing. my friend, the pedometer, died on friday. the cheap plastic hinge hinged its last.
since i commenced my measuring in february this year i’ve walked around 2957km. It’s not an exact science of course but this equates to over 3.6 million steps.
If the hinge had lasted another week it probably would have broke the 3,000km mark. but it didn’t.
jane’s letting me borrow her pedometer this week until i get a replacement so i can continue measuring.
here is the chart of my travels:

the average cost of my doc marten boots is now just over 2pence/km and i average 64.3km/week (around 80,000 steps per week).
