100 Mile Challenge!!

February 23, 2010

Sara from Padfoot and Prongs recently contacted me with the idea of doing a 100 Mile Challenge with prizes. I thought this sounded like a great idea and thought some of you might be interested in joining!

Here’s what we have figured out so far:

  • First to 100 miles wins!
  • Start date would be Monday, March 1, 2010.
  • We would use DailyMile (and the honor system) to track miles.
  • Running outside, treadmill or elliptical machines would count.

Things to figure out:

  • One prize idea is that all the losers send the winner a $5 Subway card (which you can do via email)
    • I personally think this will motivate me more, but I understand why others wouldn’t want to risk having to offer up part of the prize (not sure about time constraints or ability to run).
  • Can anyone from any running level join?
    • Most of us are beginners running an average or 2-3 miles each run… so can people running more than that join?

Let me know what you guys think!!

    Wahooooo I think it all sounds great! I am totally down with giving the winner a 5$ subway card since they would totally deserve it!! I’m def a beggining jogger so I won’t be able to clock more than like 3 miles or so at a time! However Ill def be pushed to go a little further with this! Thanks for making the post T!

    I’m thinking about it, might be some extra motivation to pick up some distance, but I’m not sure I’m cool enough to hang yet.

      So far it’s ALL beginners clocking no more than 3 miles a run. You could also count walks with the family ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m in! I keep struggling to hit my 50 miles a month goal- this would be awesome. Plus, I am really going to need some motivation to keep running once I start P90X (March 1st) I’m afraid those workouts are going to de-rail my running training!

    I’m in! Sounds like awesome motivation.

    I’m in! I usually go small distances, but maybe I’ll start trying my hand (well, feet really) at some longer jogs.

    Ok I created a DailyMile challenge that starts March 1, 2010! As of right now only “running” counts because it was all or just that. I don’t think we want to count cycling so I didn’t pick “all”.

    Let me know if you need an invitation!

    Hey Tara,

    I know you sent me an invite, and I clicked on it, but I don’t think it added me to the challenge. Could you send it again?
