The Challenge

Hey everyone! Thanks SO MUCH for visiting us on our new blog! We are two cousins that live a LONG ways away but stay connected through the internet. We both started running in 2009 in the Couch to 5k program (which we LOVE and highly recommend). But now the question is where to go from here? That's where the New Year comes in.

We have decided to set a challenge for the two of us. From December 31, 2009 to December 31, 2010 we are going to run a total of 2010 miles between the two of us. That's 1005 miles each. At first it seemed REALLY intimidating, but then we worked out the math. It's an average of 2.75 miles per day, and when broken into alternate day increments then it's 5.5 miles per workout. This past summer we made the goal of running a 10k by Memorial day so we figure it's totally doable to keep up that routine for the year. We also plan to finish our miles together around December 31, 2010 by doing a half marathon or (gasp!) an entire marathon together. Both of us are going to log on here to update the blog on our progress and experiences. It's definitely going to be an interesting journey, but we invite you to join us as we run more than either of us ever thought we could possibly run. If you have a fitness resolution, please tell us about it and keep us updated on your progress! Enjoy our blog!
