Thanks to Gone for a Run for Hosting!! Keep Gone For a Run on your mind for Christmas Shopping!!!

It is DECEMBER!!!

WOW oh WOW!!

I plan to run today with the Awesome Kerrie @ Mom vs. Marathon today.. I have really diverted off of my usual workout schedule and I want to get back to it.. Staying motivated the last month of the year when the temps start to drop and we have busy schedules is HARD... I was excited to find some motivation through Run With Jess HERE and her 12 Days of a FIT Christmas. The premise? Workout, post a comment that you worked out and you will be entered to win PRIZES for 12 days!! I love the idea and will be participating for sure. GREAT idea Jess!!

December has 31 days

Is it possible for me to run a minimum of 1 mile every day??

Hmmmmm...

It is no streak like Shelly HERE who is on day 571 of her EPIC Running Streak..

Could I (we) do it??


I have already hit my 1,000+++ miles for the year. I have been aching for a CHALLENGE.. I would get credit for the first 12 days on Jess's challenge.. And I want to motivate the Tall Mom 1,000++ participates to PUSH this month..

HMMMMMM!!!

Let's go for it..

Rules are SIMPLE..

Run a minimum of 1 Mile every day in December

That is 31 miles+++


***Who is in??

I'm in! I've found it difficult to stay motivated and stop coming up with excuses lately. Hopefully this challenge will do the trick!

Rene' said...

I am in Mel. I am not going to make my 1000 miles this year because of an injury, but I am back and need something to keep me motivated!

Jamie said...

I'm in! I hope I can do it!

bollpeifer said...

Great idea! I would love to, but probably shouldn't as I'm coming back from an injury :( But I just found your blog and am excited to follow along, hope to join the 1,000 mile for 2012, assuming you'll do it again! Laura

Jen said...

I would totally be in, but I am a strick no run order from the DR for a minimum of 3 weeks, she wanted 4 weeks but I negotiated to 3. :)

quick question: would that be an actual mile a day...or as long as you totalled 31 miles for the month of Dec? I'm already thinking 12 days in a row for Jess is gonna be hard ~ not sure i can guarantee a mile a day (which is why i haven't joined the streak), but i could do 31 total! Lemme know, please. Thanks.

I'm totally in! I need to run ~50 miles this month to hit my goal of 700 for the year, 100 more than I ran last year. This will help me stay on track. Thanks!

Heather Forcey said...

Count me in. Perfect motivation to do something each day.

swyers said...

I am in..... I am 106 away from my 1000 goal (should have been closer, but had some issues in October that kept me from running)....so I need to push it this month....

Beth S. said...

I'm in! I could use it... I did 3 this morning, and thinking about doing another one for fun this afternoon just because it's pretty outside.

Sweetie said...

I was just thinking about bailing on my run tonight. This challenge is motivating me to hop on that treadmill after work!

Wendie C said...

I'm in!

Zoƫ said...

You know I was just thinking about doing a "mile-a-day" by myself, but this makes it even more hard to pass up. I'm IN. I've already started two days ago...hee hee!

We need to meet up SOOOOOON.

runningforthree said...

I'm in! Great idea. It will be great to have something to keep me motivated over the holidays. All those CALORIES!!

Mary said...

I don't know if I will make it but I will try!
Can walking count? I have been taking mile and half long "lunch" walks.

Runnermom.Judy said...

I am in. I joined on daily mile. I also finished my 1000 miles, but won't make 2,000. I was looking for some goal to complete the month. Thanks!

Lindsay said...

I'm In, I need a challange, going on a trip in January. Thanks great idea!! :)

MCM Mama said...

I joined!

runaroundaroo said...

I am IN! I'm confined to a lot of treadmill running right now and just talking myself into getting on the treadmill is hard, but one mile really isn't that hard...right?!

MomRunningFromCancer said...

I joined on Daily Mile. I am already running daily from thanksgiving thru New Years on another blog . . . so what the heck!

Shellyrm ~ just a country runner said...

I think it's a super idea!! Showing people that exercise can have a place every day is important. Purposeful Daily Movement. Yipeee! A whole month of fellow streaks. I love it!

You rock Mel!!

~K~ said...

okay, since you said you won't judge me for taking rest days ;-) then i'm in! I've joined DailyMile but i'm new there so i will try my best to figure that out! Thanks for the challenge! runner_girl5k at yahoo dot com
