So this is what we're doing.
100 Miles by April 1.
Put your knitting down and join us!
You can walk, jog, run, crawl, swim, treadmill, spin, or bike it. Any method we crafters can use, any method to get us out of the house and out of our cars and out in the world, using our bodies to get around.
You won't be mailing me your time or mileage (unless you want to -- feel free, I'd love to know!), but register yourself at Runagogo.com and keep us posted on your mileage and your attitude! You'll have friends with you every step of the way.
It's totally do-able, I swear.
3 miles, 3 times a week. Or a little more than a mile a day. You can do
it! For some it will be a challenge. For others, a literal walk in the park. But we're in it together.
At the end, we'll post a list of everyone participating, and what their end mileage was. And then we'll all sit around in our jammies and knit and eat chocolate and not run anywhere for a little while.
If you have a Nike+iPod, send me your username (my email is to the right) and I'll add you to the runagogo challenge over there, if you want to keep track that way.....
If you don't have one of those nifty gadgets to track yourself, I'm hearing good things from people using Cool Running (link is to the log function -- keep track of your distance, time, even tells you when to change your shoes).
A great way to track distance before you leave the computer (or after you come home) is to use the Google Maps Pedometer. I LOVE this thing. Put in the address or city under Jump To and then switch to Hybrid view for a really easy way to find exact mileage.
Now, my little chickadees, get out there and move! (I suddenly feel an urge to dance around like Richard Simmons....)
If you're playing, please steal a button! (But don't forget to save the image onto your server before using it.....) How cute is this one, huh? Thanks to Janice in GA!
