GEORGETOWN, Ohio (AP) _ Steven Newman, who has walked more than 20,000 miles around the world, took a much shorter walk - down the aisle.

Newman, who walked 22,500 miles across 20 countries and five continents from April 1, 1983, to April 1, 1987, married Suzanne Neu Woods on Saturday.

″As of this morning, Steve Newman’s wanderlust may have been nipped in the bud,″ he said.

Newman, 34, of Bethel, has been making the television talk show rounds and is writing a book about his experiences.

The couple met last year when Mrs. Newman took her grandmother to hear Newman speak to a group of senior citizens.
