Summer Mileage Challenge..

Friday, June 21, 2013

Welcome to the first official day of Summer!
emoticon

I've started a Summer Mileage Challenge on the Spark Portland team, and I figured why not spread the joy to all y'all! Let's log our miles for the whole summer - from June 21 through September 22 - to see how many miles we can accomplish over the coming months. Feel free to share this with your teams and friends and get as many people involved as you can.

The miles can be foot powered or wheel powered.

What??
Walking, jogging, wogging, slogging, running - all foot powered miles.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Biking, skate-boarding, and roller-blading/-skating - all wheel powered miles.
emoticon emoticon

I admit, this is TOTALLY selfish on my part because I need a push to get back into the good habit of running three times a week. I don't even walk enough during the week, so I'm hoping for help and accountability, and some FUN with my friends here to do this.

**NOTE**
I have a Fitbit and it counts my steps all day long, and logs how many miles I walk. This is not walking with a purpose, much, it's just steps during the day. For ~ME~ I'm only going to count mileage that I walk/run on purpose. It's up to you to decide if you're going to count every single step you take every day, or just the ones that you do intentionally as fitness.

Hey, Every Single Step helps, so there's no problem counting them! I'm just letting you know how I'm going to do my logging.
**

Take this template and turn it into a blog if you want, or post it on your main Spark Page and log your miles that way. Whatever works best for you.

What do you win/gain by doing this? The satisfaction of a job well done!
I admit, I'm bribing the Spark Portland team with Spark Goodies going to the top mileage earner each month, but it's harder to do that with all y'all.

Ready? Set? Go!

    After your last blog I looked to see if I was missing something about the Summer Mileage Challenge - and yep, sure did miss it.

Love this idea! I've finally started getting some miles back under my feet and now I need to get some under my wheels too.

    I'm in. I need to figure out how I want to count my steps. I have a pedometer that I wear but it's not very high tech.

Thanks for the template!

PS. I posted a link to your blog on mine. I hope that's ok. Let me know if you want me to take it off. Hugs!
