100 days challenge

I’ve made a new challenge for myself: to run every day for 100 days.  I can run fast or I can run slow.  I can go far or I can go just a little bit.  I have to go at least a mile, but that’s pretty doable (and time friendly!).  I’m looking forward to it and excited to see how it feels to run every day, day in and day out!  I think the most I’ve run in a row prior to this is 6 days.  100 will be quite different!

Do you want to join me?  It doesn’t have to be running – maybe it’s 100 days of yoga for you, or 100 days of positive thinking, or trying new recipes, or stretching, or hugging somebody, or giving a compliment to a stranger.  Whatever it is, let me know if you want to join me and what you want to do!

For me the challenge starts today (November 15) and will end on February 23!  

I started off this morning with a quick 2 miles before I left for the office – 2 miles in 17:11, 8:36 pace.

Here’s to 100 days of running!

  1. Good challenge!! You impress me so much. I would be setting myself up for failure by trying to do 100 days of running but I think I can do 100 days of 100 crunches (or other abdominal exercises), so I’ll try that! I need to get my midsection back in shape. 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Good for you! I’ve always considered something like this but I have never committed to a running challenge. Though I do remember keeping a running log in high school and I went 118 days of running straight. I’m not sure I could do it now. I can’t wait to watch you reach this goal!

  3. I am in for 100 days of running. I need something to get me motivated again! I will link up with you when I post my progress! Love reading your blog.

  4. What an amazing challenge! I’d love to join you but I don’t know that I could do it. Let me think about it. I mean could I fit in at least a mile a day in?.. hmm.. hmm.. What’s that, like 10-12 minutes? I’d like to say everyone should have at least 10 minutes of cardio in them a day. Okay I have some thinking to do.

  5. Love the idea of committing to 100 days of something! I am going to take a slightly different twist on your 100 days of running. I’ll challenge myself to 100 days of gratitude. Every day for the next 100 days I will journal (handwritten thoughts on real paper) at least one thing that I am grateful for that day.

    Thanks for the inspiration!
