Up Topic Communities / Women / Mileage Challenge 2019 - who's interested?

Who is interested in joining a mileage challenge for 2019?

Should be make any changes to things for the new year?

As was this case this year, 2019 will be a challenge for all of Runango with results reported on the L&O page.

   The most common suggestion is to count miles recorded by our fitness bands/watches even if they are not miles incurred during active exercise.  We tried to address that differentiation last year by offering a Step Challenge.  I don't think we'll do the Step Challenge again in 2019 as there ultimately wasn't a lot of interest in it.

   We could incorporate other sports - swimming, biking, etc. - but we've never come up with a very simple equivalence formula.

   If there are other things you'd like to see - please speak up.

If you have suggestions - please post them.

If you are interested in participating in 2019, please indicate below.  If there is sufficient interest, we'll put some teams together.

I'm interested. :happy:  I'd say to put me down for 1400 miles in 2019.

I don't have a fitness tracker and don't do much swimming/biking, so I don't have any great suggestions for how to incorporate other non-running activities.

Great!  Look for the weekly threads over in L&O to report mileage totals

I'm interested! I finished 2018 with 1000 miles, which was my goal. This is down from my high of 1600 miles back in 2015, when I was still doing marathons. (Have not attempted any more since I fractured my patella in 2016. :cry:) My mileage count ended in October of 2016 for that year, and I ended up with 750. Ran about the same in 2017, but managed to hit 1000 in 2018!

I am trying for 1200 this year, which will be a challenge given my ongoing knee issues and my crazy (but awesome) new job!

Kay, great to see you!  Are you teaching in public school now?

Yes, I am! Will fill you in when I have a minute! Back at the school where I started teaching in the early 2000s. :hug:
