I am so excited to have so many of you aboard for the 2012 miles challenge. I did not think it would take off so much and I am impressed with the support and the involvement we already have!
I have received a lot of feedback about the number of miles — and I know a lot of people are not up for 2012 miles for lots of reasons: being a beginner, time constraints, other commitments, etc.
I want to remind everyone that this is a personal challenge; no one is going to be tracking you all year or requiring your log at the end of the year to “prove” your mileage.
I also want to remind you that the miles can be logged in any way you choose. One participant is looking to find a way to convert capoeira time into mileage. Anything counts!
That being said - 2012 miles is A LOT. I know that. It’s my personal goal. Some people have chosen to join me in 2012 miles. But that’s not a goal for everyone.
In the interest of inclusivity and at the request of a participant on Facebook, I am adding a 201.2 miles challenge category. If you are a beginner, or not ready to do 2012 miles, please consider 201.2 miles for your goal. This will also earn you a medal at the end of the year!
I hope that this helps more people to get involved and be excited about the new year!
“The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.” - Robert Fulghum
