This absurdly warm weather is helping me get some miles in.

Week 2
43.6 miles:
1 hiking
36.6 biking
6 walking

Challenge total to date: 71.6

Make sure to follow my instagram to see how I’m getting these miles:

Some thoughts so far on the challenge:
– I consider hiking to be on a trail/out in nature and walking to be on pavement/in town.
– I was going to start counting climbing miles but I doubt I will climb more than a mile outside this year so it’s not worth all the figuring out of route heights to track it.
– The original challenge said that biking miles can only account for 25% of the total but I’m hoping to bike more in place of running, which I hate, so I’m not putting any limits on it.
– So far my spreadsheet has columns to track hike, bike, walk, run, and paddle. What other ways I can get some miles in?

Who’s going to join me?

Hi, Kristin!

I am also going to try and track my miles. I ran two miles on Fri. April 4th and biked 15 miles on Sunday, April 13. Oh, I forgot that Ken and I walked 2.5 miles on April 12th. I may not make the 1000 total, but I will try. Tour de Keuka will be 44 miles for me this year. And I will be doing two Sprint Triathlons. Hey! I ran three miles today! I better track this if I’m going to get close to 1000 miles.

When are you coming to Corning?

Love, Aunt Nancy


You should definitely track it! I think you have a good shot of getting there and doing the challenge will inspire you to do more! I hope to come to Corning sometime in May, maybe I’ll bring my bike.
