Default 1000 miles in 2009!

In 2008, several of us ran in a 500 miles by Christmas challenge. Some of us got there (and then some---looking at you: Jo, Kitty, & Jenguin!) and some of us reached a different goal (300, thank you very much!).

Now we are starting a new year and have a new goal!

The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step....Are you IN???

This thread is open to everyone--if you are thinking of running 1000 miles by 12/31/2009...or 600....or walking 300...the idea is to move and track your mileage and have some fun along the way!

Good luck to us all!!!!

I'd love to do this! My official goal for this year is 1000 miles, but I'm secretly hoping to get to 1500 if all goes well.

I'm in again, looking forward to an awesome 2009!

I've decided to start the New Year right with a run at midnight right as 2009 arrives.

Welcome to all!

Kitty, I need to make a ticker.
Jo, a NYE run at midnight? That sounds fun (cold....but fun!). I have a run scheduled New Year's Day, so I'll be right behind you.

I was talking to DH last night about a good goal and we crunched some numbers. So, here's what some mileage might look like.

Joyful, if you go for 1500, you are looking at about 29 miles a week. That's quite doable (and impressive)!

1000 miles = about 19 miles per week
800 miles = about 15.5 miles per week
700 miles = about 13.5 miles per week
300 miles = just under 8 miles per week

I've been running about 10 (3-4 miles about 3 times) miles a week consistently. I would have to double that to reach 1000 miles, which I could do, but it would take more time than I currently have allocated to running. But this is supposed to be a challenge.

I'm in for 800 miles in 2009. I think I can achieve it but it will take some work.

Now, off to make a ticker!!

I would love to join! My goal will be 500 miles in the form of walking, running, elliptical, and cycling at the gym.

I'm in! And I'm setting the goal of 1000 miles. It will be a bit of a stretch goal for me to do it, but I'm willing to give it my best shot!

Hi! I'm definitely up for this. 1000 miles running or the closest I can get to it! I'm new by the way... what a way to start my 3FC experience.
