March Challenge

February's challenge was food-oriented but this month it's all about movement. With warmer temperatures coming, everyone starts thinking about being outside, the beach, etc. Don't wait until it's in the 60s to get out there...go now!! Thirty or forty degree temps never hurt anyone. Besides, the point is to get your heart rate up so if you're moving purposefully, you're gonna be warm!

Workouts this month with focus largely on upper body strengthening to get tank-top ready so your March challenge, should you choose to accept it, is mileage. Walk, run or skip – it doesn't matter. Put your kids on bikes or in a stroller, put the dog on a leash and, most importantly, put your excuses in Al Gore's infamous lockbox. You've no need for them anymore. 

First, set a goal for yourself. 
This is not a competition. We all have different circumstances and demands on our time but we can all do something.
Second, give yourself the gift of exercise. Yes, it's hard to find the time until it becomes habit. Then, just like brushing your teeth, it's part of your day.
Third, if you wish, log your mileage in the comments section of this post every week.
We'll celebrate and commiserate as needed. 

I'll goal is to run 80 miles this month. That's probably more than I ran in January and February combined with all the snow and school closings. Gotta make up for lost time! 

What about YOU?? :)


  1. My goal is to walk 30 miles this month. Seems wimpy, huh? That will be 30 more miles than I walked last month :)

  2. Nothing wimpy about 30 miles! YAAAAY!!! I'm so happy to have a buddy in this. Thank you! :)

  3. Chuck cracks me up!
