I was never a fan of any sort of challenge… but Shelly and I decided we needed some sort of motivator to prepare for our upcoming 100 milers. Getting out at least once per day would ultimately eliminate a lot of the excuses we use.
Around the same time, our friend Vanessa posted about a 30 day running challenge. We talked it over and agreed to give it a shot. Over the course of a few hours, our Facebook friends somehow turned it into a 120 day challenge.
A slew of people jumped on the idea… even some that are planing ultras during that time frame. Yes, they will have to run the day after the ultra. 🙂
Since I didn’t want people to injure themselves by not taking adequate rest days, we agreed to set the daily minimum at one mile. We’ll surpass that regularly, but we decided an easy mile should be pretty easy to do. I’d even accept walking… if absolutely needed.
I didn’t want this to turn into a boring chore, so I’ll start a post on Facebook each day to discuss our progress. Warning for those that don’t already follow the posts my friends and I make: They’re often juvenile and moderately offensive. Join up at your own risk. 😉
So… who’s in?
