    Hello Holiday Challenge 2017! I haven’t been accepted to the Facebook page, yet, so I will post my little gratitude note here:

    I am grateful for my 5 year old son who loves me.

  • Rhonda Baker says:

    I’m Rhonda, new to the challenge. I deleted my Facebook account and realized I still have one for my dog, so if you see Ripley Baker on the Facebook group, that is me. Week 1 goal: 15 miles, 10 running, 5 crosstraining. Starting a little low, we’ll see how it goes.

    Hello! I’m new to the challenge and don’t use FB; thanks for offering an alternate place to post goals.

    I’m training by minutes, not miles (or km – I live in Canada), so my goal for Nov 1-5 is 29 “miles”: 3 70-min yoga classes and 2 40-min run/walk sessions. I signed up today because I’ve already blown off one of those running days – I hope this challenge will help me stay on target for the rest of 2017.

  • ama says:

    week 2 goals: 3 runs (5:1 x 5 run:walk MThSa) and 4 yoga classes (TWSaSu). 37 “miles” total
    Do some squats & counter-top pushups while waiting for morning kettle to boil
    Use the yoga-tune-up balls for post-run calf massage.
    And get those NaNoWriMo words done!

    Hello. I am new to the challenge and late to get on board–just joined 11/23 Thanksgiving Day after doing my own 5K Turkey Trot. 😎 Better late than never! Being a runner is not new to me & neither is my biggest struggle with running… CONSISTENCY (the c-word)!!! So, not only am I in it for the miles but I’m determined to keep consistency on the forefront of what I do. Joining this challenge is making me accountable. Thus far, I ran 1-3 miles every day including completing the Thanksgiving virtual race!!!
