I’m not a big time runner. I like knocking out 2-3 miles when I do run, but the furthest I’ve ever gone is just over 8 miles (and then I promptly threw up). So here’s the challenge:
My wedding is 9/19 and I want to run 100 miles between now and then. That’s about 14 miles a month… or 3.5 a week. But your wedding may be sooner… or later… I just want some folks to join me and encourage along the way. Who’s in?
My personal guidelines: whole miles only (this will challenge me to finish what I’m running.) No 2.25 miles… that’s just 2. Make it 3!
3 miles down tonight… 97 to go. I think I may make a paper chain and tear of a chain for each mile to track my progress! Let’s go!!!

I kinda love this…. although my wedding is 7/9/11, so I don’t have as much time! I am the QUEEN of 2.25 – 2.5 miles… so that would definitely push me to the solid 3 miles! I also like the chain… although I don’t want to take the time to make one (and store it). Maybe a paper-clip chain? Not as dramatic of a tear-away, but it’ll work 🙂

I win I win! I just hit 100 miles in this running competition I’m doing–we started Jan 16 and I hit 100 Monday. That’s more running than I’ve ever done in my life and we still have 2 months to go! I’m hoping I can hit 300 by the end of our challenge. 🙂

You can do it! And I bet once you hit your stride you’ll be cranking out even more miles! 😀

Do you have an ipod or iphone?
Nike has a cool site where you can join challenges like this.
I used to use the Nike chip with my nano.
But if you have an iPhone…the Nike+GPS app is super awesome and easy to upload your stats to Nike’s site directly from your phone.

I want to try!! My wedding is June 19th!! I think I’ll start next Saturday so that I have exactly 4 months. That’s 25/month, 6.25/month. I’m definitely doing it!
Our bridal party is running a 5k the Saturday before our wedding! My FI, myself, 3 BMs, 1 MOH, 2 GM and my FMIL will be running! This will be a great way to keep me motivated in my training!

I’ve been working on a 1,000,000 meter challenge since January 1st. Me and a group of my friends are trying to run a million meters (621.4 miles) in 2011.

Love this! what a great goal! I just found a pretty cool website that is called daily mile. There are tons of beginner runners on there and it’s super easy to track your miles, your progress how you were feeling on the run, etc. It also has an iPhone app (and maybe other phones?)
Oh and the Nike stuff that @Theresa90405: suggested is great too! Though I like the simplicity of just writing it down after I’m done.
