Half Time in the Global Challenge!

We’re now half way through the 100 day 2017 Global Challenge and The Library Stampers have been ‘stepping out’ and building up the step count; 4,266,884 steps to date. It’s about time for a short rest and a cup of tea to contemplate the journey so far, and to give ourselves a little pat on the back.

The team have (virtually) walked across America to Canada, then back down and admired the Statue of Liberty, sunbathed in Cuba, hung out with the Sloths in the Amazon Jungle, took in the view from Table Mountain in Cape Town and have now reached the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. 

Along the way we have been collecting more virtual trophies for setting and beating personal bests, completing mini challenges set by the Global Challenge organisation and setting personal step milestones such as 500,000 steps. We are also in the Trust's top 10 most improved teams.

The last 50 days have made us more aware of how much (or how little exercise) we do each day and how it can be tricky fitting it in between the daily commute and a desk job.

The Global Challenge is also about general health and wellbeing and provides useful information, hints and tips on improving nutrition, mindfulness and sleep quality.  We may be tired but we're looking forward to the next 50 days!
