Default Lazy man (and woman) Marathon for Feb.

CAn you do 26 miles on foot this month? Not in under three hours, not in a single day, but over the month. You can do it outdoors, indoors, on the track, on the treadmill, on the elliptical, what ever works for you. You can do a mile per day, or several miles at a time. You can do a double marathon over the course of the month if that's more your speed.

Here are the rules. Join in. Commit. Keep us up to date on your progress in this thread. Celebrate your success and fellow marathoners at the end.

Here is the color code.
25% red 6.5 miles 10.46 km
50% orange 13 miles 20.92 km
75% pink 19.6 miles 31.54 km
100% green 26.2 miles 42.2 km
100+ purple 27+ miles 43.5+ km
200% blue 52.4 miles 84.4 km

I will try to update the tally right here every day, or at least every other day.

Wannaskipandlaugh ... 44.90 miles
Sum 38 ... 45 miles .... Woohooo!! the 1st across the finish line.
Seaurchin ... 1.0 mile
Gkm130 ... 26 miles
Junem ... 27.0 miles
AAD ... 127 miles ! +
Buddha belly ... 1.5 (1 mile plus 1000 steps)

I'm in. I plan to sign up for a half marathon for this spring, but it is so cold here that I am having trouble getting motivated to train. This will help jump start my training and get me to the gym. What a clever idea...starts today right?

Thank you, Junem for inviting me to the thread. I don't know that I can do 1000 miles in 2014 but I am pretty sure that I can do at least 52.4 in February.

Miles: Feb 1 - Feb 2 = 18

2/3/14 300 steps
2/4/14 700 steps

2/10/14 .5 miles on and off

Oh so I have made 2 full miles now on 2/10/14.

2/11/14 650 steps
2/13/14 350 steps
2/14/14 160 steps
2/15/14 500 steps
2/17/14 160 step
2/23/14 100 step
