Go to Window > Brush settings and set the options to the same as mine (you can change these options for different effects):

(Brush size: 27) Hardness: 100, Spacing: 105, Angle: 0, Roundness: 100

Create a new layer, open Windows > Paths and click the Stroke path with brush option from the Paths panel.

If the circles dont match up, change the spacing / diameter of the brush. This effect could make a cool logo etc. If you change the paintrush options you can get lots of different effects, just experiment.
