5 Million Step Man

Another year of Chuck does Data Science. For the 2019 year, I challenged myself to walk 5 million steps for the year which broke down to ~13000 steps per day. Crushed the goal and ended up going over 6 million steps for the year (6098464 to be exact) which was ~16000. Calculating that 2000 steps is a mile for me, I walked about 3050 miles. You see a pretty major dip in the number of steps in November because I strained my calf playing basketball during the early part of the month.

For the data visualizations this year I mostly worked on using the GPS data to get some interesting stats from the year. For instance, the number of times I walked the same routes. By far my favorite route is the Chuck route which I only got to do once, but is fun to look at. Below are a breakdown of step stats from the year and a link to the visualizations.
