2011 Marathon Challenge

Challenge yourself this spring to complete a marathon! This challenge asks you to run and/or walk the marathon distance of 26.2 miles.

Choose from 1 of 3 options based on your experience.

Option 1(little or no prior experience): complete 26.2 miles during the month of May. Students may start sooner, if they feel the need.

Option 2(some experience): complete 26.2 miles during the week of May 23-29.

Option 3(going big): complete a marathon all in 1 day. Option 3 means you will sign up and run the Med City Marathon, another marathon, a training run of that length, or one of Jim's marathons with him between May 23 and May 29.

For my part...on the week of May 23, I will be running 7 marathons in 7 days.  I will start that Monday after school, running a marathon each evening, through Thursday that week.  I am planning on running Friday's marathon during the school day, so I can get by both of the elementary schools in town to run with the kids there again.  Saturday's run will also be during the day.  I will finish up Sunday by running the Med City Marathon in Rochester, MN.

Come join me if you are able!  Run as much or as little as you wish...multiple days are good too!  I am hoping to find some inspiration myself again by running with some people who are challenging themselves.  I would love to run with someone doing their first marathon!
