    I don't know anything about that app. My neighbor was trying to motivate her elem aged son and found some virtual walking/running famous sites challenges. Like this one: https://www.theconqueror.events/ringofkerry/
    Now her son can hardly wait to get out and get to the next check point. he enjoys telling me how many miles he's gotten up to.

    maybe a virtual challenge would work for you?

    here's some i found googling:

    That might be fun for my son too, I've never heard of this.

    I have been having issues with my fitbit lately and can't seem to get it to sync properly. Need to get it figured out.

    This is a great idea!

    I dont have a fitbit but I downloaded runkeeper for tracking. It tracks various types of exercise and is pretty accurate. I've walked 90.8mi this month and I REALLY want to make it to 100 by month's end .... fate is conspiring against me though.

    OP, another thing that is not what you asked about, but will maybe help get you out the door... The writer Gretchen Rubin last year started a challenge of "walk 20 minutes every day in 2020" so #walk20in20 . Now she's doing it again, #walk20in21 . if you google it, or go to her web site, you can see all kinds of reasons why walking is good, and a pdf file "don't break the chain" so you can print and cross off every day, a whole community of other people walking. she talked about it several times on her podcast also.
