Why haven't I posted an update about this yet? Well, you see, I'm failing miserably at it. There's a reason though. The day that I decided to start, it got cold, very very cold outside. Like, didn't warm up past 0 degrees at my house for a week. Then it slowly warmed up bit by bit until the high temp was 5 degrees. I'm all about running outside, but sometimes it's just too darn cold.I wanted to go. I even considered attempting to find a cheap treadmill to buy. And I HATE running on the treadmill. But living in Alaska, sometimes it's just not reasonable to expect to be able to exercise outside...-10 degrees is just plain cold. So, I'm planning on making my own challenge (well, sort of my own). Next week I'm going on vacation. I plan on taking my running shoes, but I'm not planning on forcing myself to go if I don't want to...it IS vacation after all. However, when I get back, I plan on starting something similar to the Runner's World Holiday Run Streak. I would start now, but I don't want to set myself up for failure by saying I'm going to run a mile every day I'm on vacation. So I'm not.
