I'm in.

I will start tonight 4.2.09 and post in time then.

I will try and make up the 2 days I missed.

Great idea.

Let's get this weight off.

If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.

Hello challengers! I have created a team for those of you that want to take on this challenge. The team name is 20 Mile Team Challenge. You can post your miles either on the team or here if you don't want to be a member of the team. Here is the break down of miles based on how many days you walk or run.

7 days = 2.8 miles
6 days = 3.33 miles
5 days = 4 miles
4 days = 5 miles
3 days = 6.6 miles
2 days = 10 miles
1 day = 20 miles (of course)

Like I said before you can report miles daily or weekly, what ever works for you. Thanks for the questions and I look forward to starting this challenge tomorrow.

Here is the challenge, you can choose to walk or run, but the goal is to get 20 miles in either way. Start on Monday 3-30-09 and This challenge will end April 30th. You can log in each day and record you miles or record them at the end of the week. I look forward to seeing how many will challenge themselves to 20 miles a week. I know this challenge will push me and help me even more with my training for the marathon in June. Good luck everyone and I look forward to meeting new people with this challenge!
