Week three can be a drag when you’re in the 100 mile mom challenge. For me it’s when your body is starting to get a little tired, the runs are getting a little more tedious, and it all seems to be more of a chore. Fortunately, this week I got to mix it up with a trip to the beach. Not only does this mean I have flat runs (I’m am so not a hill girl), but it also means that I have family to watch the boys (no double jogger runs), and beautiful scenery. I’m just hoping the rain stays back and we’ll be all good.
Because I’m on vacation, there is no scale. Sure I coulda brought one with me, but where’s the fun in that??? So, instead I weighed myself the day I left. I’m not super-excited to see the weight gain from the trip (sure I’ll be running, but I also plan to do my share of eating and boozing), but I’ll have a few days to work it off before we wrap up the challenge for the month.
Now, here’s what I’m asking you: I want to get all of you motivated to bike, swim, walk and jog 100 miles in July. I’m working with companies to get great prizes for those that participate, but here’s what I need… what kind of incentive do you need to participate in the 100 mile challenge (besides someone else to do it for you!). Let me know and I’ll try and make it happen.
91.17 miles complete, 8.83 miles to go!
