Jenny Bauer, right, and friend Susan Veazey, both of East Sacramento, walk together at McKinley Park on Wednesday. Bauer uses a Fitbit to measure her steps. “I love this thing,” she says about her older style clip-on Fitbit, which a friend gave her. “It helps me be accountable. We live in a beautiful neighborhood and I love walking and seeing how many steps I take.”
