You can use Google Earth for a quite accurate distance. Or a routing program if you stay on roads. I use MapSource on my computer to calculate the distance on shorter walks. For longer walks I use a GPS receiver. You could use your phone if it has a GPS receiver.
I am thinking about buying a small, simple GPS logger to log all my walks.

I use Runkeeper.
I am so, so sorry to hear about your dog.
My sympathies also for your dog.
I also use runkeeper for iPhone.
Good to see more people coming on board!
So everyone, would you like me to update the first post with everyone's progress so we have a master index of where we are all at?

Lost the weight using CW. Now I just want to be healthier.

Feel free to read and/or comment, but don't expect me to listen.
Distance walked 2012: 321 kms as of June 15.
May I join as well please. DH and I usually walk 8km 3 times a week. We've logged 16km so far.
13 km for me
I walk an hour a day, about 4 miles, in everything but wind driven precipitation. That I did for a living for a time and still enjoy not doing it. I incorporate it into my commute by walking from work toward home before hopping on the subway w/ the route mainly through parks or plazas so I can keep the pace up. This I have done for a long time, well before discovering PB.
Once developed as a habit you'll miss not doing it. Very meditative, works out any kinks or tightness, connects you with the seasons and weather, gets you out in the sun and I think delimits how fat you can get if other things are not in line. And it's one thing I prefer to do when it's cold.
Figure I've been doing it for 12 years that's a good 27,000 kilometers give or take, it's no wonder I wear sneakers out at such a clip. Prior to that I carried mail on foot for 11 years which would make the total some astounding number, but for those miles I was paid
