Tall Mom 1,000+++ Club


ATTENTION Tall Mom 1,000++ 2010 Club Members you have 18 days to complete your miles!!! How did you do? Did you surpass it by multiple Marathons? Will you squeak in on New Years Eve? Or did injuries and life get in the way leaving you a few miles short??
  • No Matter what I am PROUD of each and every one of you!! It has been fun to see the total miles grow on the spreadsheet and connect people all with the same mission to GET MOVING!!
ACTION:
  1. Be sure to log into the Spreadsheet and update your miles. It will close on 1/1 and I will post the numbers on Tall Mom.
  2. If you would like to receive a recognition please email me your mailing address. I have a few ideas floating around, wish it could have been more.. (tallmomontherun @ hotmail . com)
  3. Send me your 1,000 pictures!! I would love to include photos in the end of the year Club post. So get creative. Email me your photo along with your name and a link to your blog so I can keep things organized.
Need ideas??
Jill is Pretty CREATIVE...I felt BLESSED to run her 1,000th mile with her.
  • Check out my Post HERE last year when I hit the 1,000th mile. I chose to have some assistance to get my 1,000 picture :)
It is such an AMAZING feeling to go 1,000 and beyond. Knowing that you have made a life commitment to fitness, making time for yourself and your health.
  • BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!
On 1/3 Tall Mom 1,033+++ Club 2011 will open. Want to join in??? You will get the chance very soon. Everyone already in the club for 2010 will be carried over unless you opt out..
  • I got up at 4:15 AM and met Janna and Rachelle for a rainy dark run. It was slow but it felt good to be moving and get some fresh air... Janna was telling me all about the people she has met lately at races and Fleet Feet Events.. she said some of you have dropped my name.. Hmmmmm?? Who are you?? Introduce yourself :) Tonight is the Fleet Feet Christmas party, very excited to see all my buddies dressed up and RELAXING.. Will be nice to have a conversation that does not involve heavy breathing.

HAPPY TUESDAY!!

I've been bad about transferring my miles to the spreadsheet. I'll get it updated today. This has been great motivation. I can't wait to start the 1,033 mile club.

Marlene said...

YAY, I was hoping we could keep playing in 2011! I'll try to send you a pic. :)

Jill said...

I'm excited to join the club in 2011! How do you decide how many miles? I'm interested to know where the 1033 came from... :)

Rose said...

I'd love to participate in 2011. I'll be working on getting faster, but I'll still need to put in the miles, and it will be great to have an incentive.

I missed the cut-off for the 1000 club... can't wait to join the 1033 club!

Stephanie Nichole said...

I don't get the 1033.... maybe I"m just not good at math. Which isn't good since I'm in finance...

Deb said...

I'm really tempted to join the 1033 club. I'm doing the math, and I think I should be able to hit it.

Suzy said...

Can't wait for next year's 1033!! Tks for the reminder to take a pic at the 1,000 mi mark. I'll do that when I hit it later this week/early next week.

I surpassed 1000, but i only ran 1 marathon, I was just really dedicated.
I appreciate your challenge and will SOOOOO do it next year too!

And will have to think of a creative way to show you 1000? Or do I show you my "real" number?

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

Ha ha! You said "...nice to have a conversation that does not involve heavy breathing."

I don't think I'm going to make it...but I guess I've had a few months of low mileage, like Jan and Feb where I was recovering and then in July.... ;) Overall I'm pretty proud of my miles but can't help but wish I had done more.

I'm looking forward to 1033+++ in 2012.

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

Wait, WOW! I just jumped ahead a whole year! Guess it is almost 2011 not 2012! Ha!

15 miles to go! Not bad considering I started logging miles in late February.
Thanks for doing this. It has been fun watching the miles climb.

I thought about trying for 1000 last year but bring pregnant knew I couldn't catch up. I really want to try it in 2011 though. Gotta do some thinking and decide if I can commit.
