November 1? Really? Where did the time go? Tomorrow marks two weeks since the Denver Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon and I have done…squat. Apparently, I needed a break from running and any other form of exercise. In the last two weeks, I have ran once and went to one hot yoga class. Yep, I guess you can say I’ve kind of been a slug and have lost all form of motivation.
But, I decided today was the day. Enough of this hemming and hawing crap and time to get back at it. I mean, really, c’mon, how hard can it be? Not that hard, right?
This may sound weird and kind of come as a shock, but I’m not really a goal-setter. I mean, I kind of am, but not really. I belong to many different running and fitness groups on Facebook and I have seen many friends and acquaintances challenge themselves (set a goal!) to run/walk/bike/crawl/whatever a distance of 100 miles in one month. I was kind of envious. I thought it was cool, but not something I could do. Not entirely sure why, because I have come close to hitting that “insane” number of miles numerous times, but I never have. Even in the peak of training! Silly, huh?
Sooooooooo, I am doing it. I am committing. I am writing it down. I am shouting it out loud. I am telling the world. I am making a calendar!
I, Celeste Joy Edenloff, am setting a goal of running/jogging/walking at least 100 miles for the month of November. Whew! There, I did it. I said it. I SET IT! Holy crap, I did it. Wait, can I take it back? Just kidding!
Anyone care to join me? If so, follow my blog’s Facebook page. You can find it here. Post your November 100-mile goal commitment on my page. Then, each day, tell me how many miles you did. We will keep each other accountable. Right? YES! That’s what we are here for. ACCOUNTABILITY! If you want, you can even download the calendar I have posted below to keep track of your mileage.
So, how many of you are willing to accept the challenge and get in 100 MILES for the month of November? C’mon, I know you want to!
There might even be a prize involved…stayed tuned!
It’s time to take the 100-mile challenge…are you ready? If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
