Pile on the Miles
Secondly, I've entered a little contest for the month of November called Pile on the Miles. The contest, hosted by Monica, is to encourage participants to pile on miles in November rather than piling on pounds. Seriously, this seems like a fabulous idea to me considering that with the colder temperatures I really just want to snuggle up in front of a fire rather than go out walking or running. However, with the half marathon coming up and now this contest it seems like a fabulous way to keep up the training. Mileage only counts if it is walking or running - no sneaking in biking miles - and reporting your miles is on the honor system. So, you set your mileage goal for November and report in your miles by Monday and that's it! My goal is 100 miles... I hadn't considered the taper as part of the month so that might be lofty but I think it's still good to have a goal.
Are you participating in #POTM (Pile on the Miles)? Have you ever done a contest like this? Were you successful?
