Roger Ebert wears a pedometer

Peter Harter from In2Books pointed out this story in yesterday’s New York Times Magazine: Magazine > Domains: A Film Critic’s Windy City Home” href=”http://www.nytimes.com/2005/02/13/magazine/13DOMAINS.html?”>Domains: A Film Critic’s Windy City Home — an interview with Roger Ebert.

Snip:

What’s always with him: I wear a pedometer, a little device that counts every step. It works as a goad, because you walk additional distances to pile up the numbers. The average person walks 2,000 to 3,000 steps a day. I walk 10,000 steps a day. I have lost a lot of weight as a result.

good find Peter.
