Week 1: 30.31 miles complete, 69.69 miles to go
My sanity keeper this week has been the 100 Mile Mom Challenge. In a week full of work, sick kids, eating on the go, selling houses, and house shopping, the one consistent thing has been running. I don’t do well in times of change. I’m a routine girl through and through. And my routine is all kinds of messed up. But, running? I’ve done that every day. It’s the one time of day that I can clear my head, sort my thoughts, and focus on one thing: one foot in front of the other.
As I said in my initial post about the 100 Mile Mom Challenge, I’m your guinea pig. I’m tracking my own progress in my quest to run 100 miles in May. I’ll keep running and training in June, and in July I’ll be asking for everyone to run 100 Miles in our first ever Mom Favorites #100MilesMom challenge. Crawl it, walk it, run it. Just move your body. You’ve still got 7 weeks to get prepped for our mission. You can do it. And, we’ll have great prizes for incentives along the way!
I’ve had a few questions about the details of the Challenge. Is it for weight loss? For health? Why? It can be what you want it. It can be to spend more time out doors. It can be to inspire you to get fit. It could be to change your life. For me, it’s to challenge my body. To (hopefully) shed a few winter pounds. And to help me with my running pace.
