Holy moly mackeroly!
In March, we killed our upper bodies by repeating the infamous “burpee” 5,000 freakin’ times. This month, prepare to test your lower-half.
The Challenge: Run 100 Ruckin’ Miles.
Are you serious? Yes, well, I don’t know. It’s worth a try. I think a lot of you probably run close to or more than 100 miles each month already. Me? I probably run closer to 50 or less per month, so this will no doubt be an incredible task. Here’s a few guidelines to participating in the Challenge:
- How: You may accrue miles by running and/or walking. Wheel-chairing is totally awesome as well for anyone who is disabled.
- Limits: Borrowing from GORUCK Challenge, we’ll need to set some parameters by weight as follows: 150 pounds or over, a minimum of two bricks or ten pounds must be carried in each run/walk; less than 150 pounds: a minimum of one brick or five pounds must be carried in each run/walk. Note: GRC requires 6 bricks and 5 bricks respectively.
- Accountability: be sure to check-in with your progress throughout the month.
- Time: You have until April 30, 2012 at 11:59 pm to complete 100 ruckin’ miles.
What you win
Hmmm…thinking…actually, I haven’t decided yet, but I think I’ll leave that up to you. I could definitely hook you up with a sweet badge so you can brag to your social media friendlies. Maybe a sticker is in order. If you’re looking for a t-shirt or a patch for your GORUCK, let me know, we’ll work something out. I suppose I could always buy someone a Starbucks coffee again! Bottom line, what you will DEFINITELY get from this challenge is the opportunity to FAIL. How’s that for motivation?
Do epic work!
