Steps Through Stories

In the fit steps of heroes

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
-J.R.R Tolkien

Fitness through Fiction.
Health through History.

Why just jog, when you can jog through Narnia or Oz?

Log your fitness progress here and watch it trail across maps of great journeys. Jog your way to Mount Doom, follow Huck Finn on your rowing machine or cycle the Yellow Brick Road.

From epic journeys over entire years to small trips you can do with your class, you don't know your heroes until you've walked the miles in their shoes.

So what do I do?

Use your Google Fit© login for automatic sync, or simply enter the distance you exercise.

Steps Through Stories will show you where you are up to in your chosen story, with map position, a short excerpt from the story, and a mood image (only copyright-free images can be used, so these may vary in quality).

“Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny.”
-C.S Lewis
“The road was dotted with people running towards us.”
-H.G Wells, The War of the Worlds

Is it really free?

Yes, It's just a labour of love by an old developer and avid reader, who needs to exercise more.

If I can encourage some of the fitness community to read great stories, or some readers to exercise with me, so much the better!
