Last February, Fleet Feet Peeps Nancy & Bernie Pelletier saw the movie "The World Before Your Feet" which chronicles Matt Green's six-year journey to walk every street in New York City's five-boroughs - a total of 8,000 miles. Along the way Matt learned a lot about New York's history and the people who live there.
Inspired by Matt, the Pelletiers decided to walk every street in West Hartford - an adventure that encompassed 230 miles and wore out Nancy's purple Mizuno Wave Riders. Like Matt, they enjoyed getting to see their town and neighbors on a more intimate level, exploring West Hartford's wonderful parks and having a unique goal to motivate them to get outside and walk.
Congratulations Pelletiers! Now, where will your shoes take you?
