Tall Mom 1,000+++ Club Check in

The Tall Mom 1,000+++ Club is in Full Swing. Today is the 70th day of the year, CRAZY!!

With the help of the handy Spreadsheet I have some...


1. Collectively we have run more than 21,055 Miles

2. The top runner is Sherri with 449.5 miles!! Too bad she has no Blog. The top Blogger is Shelly HERE with 426.6. Shelly became an Ultra-Marathoner last weekend with her 33+ mile effort.

3. We have 4 Canadians, I am sure that thinking in Miles instead of K's is throwing them off.

4. There is a Mom and Daughter on the team

5. This weekend, as long as all goes as planned, I will cross the 300 mile marker!!!

6. There are 128 people in the Club

7. 6+ of the club members are currently nursing injuries

I will have a better summary when we hit the 1/4 Year mark in 21 days, for now I would like to introduce you to the folks who are taking on the 1,000+++ Challenge. There are a few people who have recently asked to join, I will add you to the list soon. This year the club will max at (surprise) 133 so I have 5 slots left.

And there you have it. I still cannot believe the amazing turnout. I KNOW that each and every one of you can accomplish this goal! And trust me it feels sooo good!!

  • My 5 mile run yesterday was ROUGH!! I struggled with a stiff neck and sore knees. I never found my stride and did not feel comfortable the entire time. I did not want to run, which is really unusual for me. But you know what I learned?? Regardless of how sucky it was, I felt better when I was done. POWER through and find the Runners high, it is a real thing and I cant wait to feel it again. In the mean time, this tough patch is making me stronger and I am working my way toward 1,000+++.

Tiffany said...

so I did not sign up for your 1000 mile challenge because I did not think I could do it but looking at some of these numbers maybe I can. So I know it is late but I have been keeping track of my miles - can you sign me up? You need more people from Colorado on your list!

Anonymous said...

akjenniekt said...

Sorry, tried emailing but looks like you're pretty full :-). I was wondering if you still have a slot open for the Challenge?


Becky said...

I was wondering if you had any slots left for the 1000 mile challenge too. I was going to join earlier this year and forgot to. I am running my first Marathon next weekend!

Unknown said...

Ah, I thought you filled up all spots a few weeks ago and didn't ask. Do you still have one left for another Canadian runner?
