Think your commute is bad? It's nothing compared to hers.
Luo Xiying is a postal worker in East China’s Jiangxi province who has been delivering mail from the post office to her delivery area since 1996. She takes only one of two paths each day: a 44-mile bike ride or a 25-mile hike. You won't believe how many miles she traveled on foot or by bike within a 15 year period!
Many people commute that same distance, or more, by train or car, but Luo Xiying treks out the path on foot or bike each day. From 1996 to 2011 she delivered about 300,000 pieces of mail, wore out more than 60 pairs of sneakers, and clocked in a whopping 124,250 miles. That is the equivalent of almost 6 times around the earth!
Remember that next time you're tempted to complain about commute times when riding the train or driving a car!
