Are you a Marco or a mouse?

I'm going to take The Marco Challenge and run every day in December. Not sure why, as it wasn't even a wine-fuelled decision. Marco (that's his real name, in case any readers think my husband's name is actually Sonic!) has informed me that the only rule is that the distance/time must be at least three miles or 25 minutes.

Anyone care to join me? It's not a competition. Just a personal challenge. Or an incentive to burn off a few mince pies. So far I two recruits: One willing (Anita) and one not-so-willing (Euan).

So today I did an eight mile tempo at lunchtime (ave 7.49). That's one day down, 30 to go. I think hogmanay has a new-found appeal. Next rest day? Next year.

Count me in Debbie, I had a fat lazy October which lumbered through November, time to get motivated!

Sounds a good challenge but it's one I'll have to decline as I have my last ultra to taper for and then recover from!!

Looking forward to hearing how it goes.

BTW Marco's real name is Alberto and yours is Bethie. Have you discovered Cairn's yet???

Hi Debz - count me in. But I'm a day late as Fiona only mentioned it last night - so I'll finish on the first January! Hope that's ok?

so do you add salt and sugar or you're against it? I'm not giving him sugar, maybe till he's like 2! and I don't think he needs salt either!

That's not weird! I have not given him anything I haven't made yet! I'll probably end up eating the veggie burgers all myself! :)
