As a college sophomore in late 2020, Carter Snelson (Fin, RealEst’23) decided to walk every one of Boulder’s labeled city streets using the city’s zoning map. After 2.5 years, and less than two weeks till he graduated from CU Boulder, he completed the task on April 28, 2023. On his final day of walking, Snelson also achieved another personal goal: walking 100,000 steps — 52 miles — in one day. 

“This had been the longest commitment I’ve ever had, and having it come to an end was very emotional and incredibly fulfilling,” said Snelson. “Even though I cannot say I remember exactly every one of the 165 walks I’ve done, I will never forget this journey.”
