Accepting a Challenge

Tall Mom posted a challenge for the month of August.  Walk, jog, run... 80 miles.  And I've decided to go for it!  I'm going to confess right now, I have NEVER hit 80 miles in a month.  Isn't that kind of sad, with how many half marathons I've trained for?  Yeah well, obviously I'm not really good at training.

The challenge goes until September 2nd... and if you started on August 2nd, then it equates to 2.5 miles per day.  I have no idea if I will be able to do this, as I will basically be walking all of the miles.  But I'm going to try!

Really, how hard should this be?  There is a treadmill at my clubhouse that I could get on every day for an hour and crank this out.  I'll expect you 35 readers of mine to keep me honest and motivated.

Cool!! I totally want to do it! I soooo need motivation right now. I'll be walking too, pregnancy + heat + humidity equals major running blahs! You totally got this, hopefully I'll be right there with you!

Woman, if you do 80 miles in a month WHILE pregnant, you will be my new hero! You can do it!

You CAN do it.. Do you have time for a short walk/jog at lunch and one at night?

WHEN you complete this remind me that you are running for 2.
