Dr. Jenn welcomes guest Kurt Koontz, author of the book, A Million Steps. The title for this book is a rough estimate of the number of steps he took while walking the Camino de Santiago. Over the course of a kilometer, he counted 1,153 steps. Kurt did the math and discovered that he would take a total of 909,717 steps on the trail between St. Jean Pied-de-Port, where it began, and Santiago de Compostela, where it ended. Kurt added in another 3,000 or so steps per day to cover the walks to dinner and short hikes for sightseeing. Kurt will be sharing his insights on self discovery, lessons learned and the inspirations gained on a solo pilgrimage journey.

About Kurt Koontz: After retiring early from his job as a successful sales executive for a Fortune 500 technology company, Kurt Koontz volunteered in his community and traveled across Europe and North America. He never considered writing a book until he walked nearly 500 miles across Spain in 2012. Those million steps were so compelling that he returned home and began writing and speaking about his life-changing adventures. He lives and writes on a tree-lined creek in Boise, Idaho.
