The end of a challenge

15 Dec

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

Today marks the end of the Globetrotting Challenge over at The Sisterhood.  I was excited to participate in this challenge.  The challenge ran from November 9th through today, December 16th.  Nike+ makes it so easy to track mileage.  I originally sent a goal of 68 miles.  That allotted to 4 miles 3 days a week.  Well, you know what?  I smoked that goal. As of this afternoon’s run (that I have yet to do) of 10 miles (because I didn’t make it on the treadmill yesterday), I will have logged a total of 87 miles.  Can you believe that?  I can’t.  The month of November was my highest total miles for a given month ever; 71 miles.  I have many to thank for my awesome numbers.  For one, ChristieO.  In the beginning she was keeping me on my toes.  Then there is Lisa and Christy.  These ladies fell in love with running last month and were giving me a run for my money.  Can you say competition?  Their mileage and times were catching me!  I can’t have that, now can I?  So thanks, ladies for giving me the motivation to keep going and pushing myself.

I’m excited to continue running and finish out this year with the best year of running I’ve had ever.  Thanks to my sisters!!  I wonder what challenge they will have for us next.

    Awesome!! It’s great to have our “sisters” keep up motivated and moving right along! I love having everyone to workout with — even if it’s only through the computer!!
