So, I'm in cross country, and I found out that most of the team, from Freshman to Seniors, carry a Pokewalker when they're running...
So, um, just out of curiosity, does this occur in your school? I mean, the upperclassmen are pretty intimidating, so this is kind of shocking.

I don't walk a lot (just to school and back), But my friends walks miles and miles everyday, so I just give him my Pokewalker and he gets thousands of steps each day.

Haha, yeah. We run a few miles and every mile or so, I'd see one of them reach into their pocket and pull out a PokeWalker.
Which is kind of cool, I'm just surprised is all.

I go to a Division I school, and there's a surprising amount of people that carry Pokewalkers around. It's cool though.

I'm a Junior in high school and do XC and track, a bunch of kids on my team do this, mostly just the distance kids. It's hilarious, and even more will do it during XC season next fall.

I bring mine to tennis, but kept it concealed. Near the end of practice I checked it, and found myself being mocked by the entire team...

So nope. I'm the only one on my tennis team. Still I got 13000 per practice. =)

Its the same as pedometer, the fact is you'll have a few people who make fun of it (and usually there not the people you want to hang out with), when in reality there are still people there age and older playing it (being Pokemon has been one of the gaming markets highest sellers.) I take my on Photography runs for my photography class, I don't care what people say it just peer pressure don't let it bother you.
