Somewhere in the future.
“Ma’am, can you step to the curve. We need to check your pedometer licenses.” What if one day in the future you need a licenses for your pedometer so you can legally exercise? What if there was threating teenagers saying “I am so going to walk this weekend!” “Oh, man, me too! My parents will be gone this weekend, so I can walk and hang out. They will never know.” Maybe there will be folks standing around in groups saying “Are you ready to walk?” Police will have to watch for these walkers as they will be known. Ready to arrest them at any moment for walking.
Then there will be the office workers who will have to hide their body shapes. Bosses will have to watch for signs of walkers. Pedometers hidden on shoes and waistlines, water bottles in drawers or exposed in work lockers, or thrown away in bathroom trash cans. Other things like sweatbands, walking sticks, and sunscreen will be view suspiciously.
This will all be followed by the addict groups where folks will have to be talked down from walking in parks, tracks, and on treadmills. Sponsoring groups will arise in national awareness that walking is a problem on the rise, how to watch for symptoms and signs, and how to talk with your love one on getting help.
Meanwhile in 2014, walking is still free. Get out and walk before you need a licenses.
