Run more than Ann


My co-workers decided to create a challenge to see if they could collectively run more than me in a week. I consistently run 50 miles a week, but I thought for the challenge I should add a few more miles. Since most of my co-workers are Canadian and the challenge is in kilometers, I decided 100km was a nice number and archivable in a week. Doing some math, I decide to make this work I should probably run 30 miles / ~50km for my long run on Saturday. I texted Susan and of course she was game. 

I decided to create a new route for us instead of doing an end to end on Wildwood. This also helps me achieve my goal of create 1 new route each month this year, even if I am a few weeks behind in posting it. The route was also good training for the Gorge Waterfall 50km in April, since we were both gone several weekends in March. 

I just knew I was going to beat my co-workers, but what I didn't know is they got a few extra people to join the cause right before the weekend. They even created a slack channel and an emoji for this. The tally on Monday was 8 people vs. me, they had ~135km and I had 101km. Not sure I could have pulled off another 35km in that week, but who knows. Next time.
