WOW I never knew doing this Challenge would be so FUN and REWARDING! I really started the challenge to get my butt back out there pounding the pavement, and it did! I would never have ran 11 miles on Thanksgiving without all of you hold me accountable and cheering each me on! This Thanksgiving I can say I honestly piled on the MILES and not the POUNDS. Curiosity got the best of me and I stepped on the scale to see if I gained a pound, and I weighed a pound less!! WOOT WOOT! I piled on 45.3 miles which is nothing compared to most of you! But I’am happy with that total because now I am going to kick it up a notch!
I love this comment by Caroline bee I couldn’t have said it better myself:
â€œEveryone ran an INSANE amount! Regardless of who won, every single person challenged themselves, broke personal records, and did what they probably thought they couldn’t do before.â€
