Hey all! Today marks the first day of the last week of the 100 mile summer challenge. When I first started this challenge, I had ran a total of 15 miles and my fastest mile was about a 12 minute mile. I would go on about a 2 mile run and I would be EXHAUSTED by the time I was done. (don’t get me wrong, 2 miles is a long ways). Now, I can consistently run a 10 minute mile, and I try to go on one run each week that is more than 5 miles. The rest of my runs are between 2 and 3 miles. I have made HUGE improvements. I have to be honest,...

Although summer seems to be pretty much over, we’re not quite done with the 100 mile summer challenge!  Things have been a little crazy here (my little brother just got married!

Are you guys joining in the running challenge with us? It’s a simple running challenge to get you all off your booties and on to the streets, racking up those miles. If you started when I did, you should be at just around 34 miles, not including today’s run.  I have to admit I’ve had a rough time these last few weeks! If it wasn’t for this challenge, I probably wouldn’t have kept running. I’m very grateful for the support system those completing this challenge have given me! If you are trying to...

  If you’re participating in the 100 mile summer challenge, we’ve made it to week 5! You should have run 25.5 miles so far and have 8.5 miles to run this week! If you haven’t started yet, you should! It’s a great way to get into shape and start up a running routine.  I know a LOT of my friends I have asked if they like running and I get the usual. “I am not a runner”. Or “I just HATE running”. I really can empathize with that. I remember when I first got interested in running for...

For those of you who don’t know, I’m hosting a summer running challenge. The goal is to run 100 miles during the summer.

There are quite a few bloggers that are joining me on this, and I’d love to hear about anyone else who decides to take the challenge! Leave me a comment if you’re doing it and I’m going to link up all the bloggers at some point during the challenge.  How are you all feeling...
