200K Challenge: Run a Total of 200K in the Month of January!

I realised that the last month I managed to run this much was August-- which was quite a while ago... So to try to find some motivation, posting this challenge so that we can all suffer together. :) Please note that this is not an event, but a personal challenge lasting the entire month of January! If you RSVP yes, then it means you'd like to take on the challenge. The idea is that we can support and motivate each other to run 50K a week (so a grand total of 200K for the month). Post your runs, or just update us about your progress and weekly totals-- there's a strava group (see comments for the link) and together we can beat the winter running blues and start training for Paris or other spring marathons.

    Up to 108.5km as of yesterday, but I don't run or swim either!

      Sam, how do you manage 108.5km of running if you don't run?!

      Very talented, what can I say! I meant I don't "cycle" or swim obviously, but that's what happens when you type too quickly!

    Managed 40km last week, which takes my monthly total to.... 40km - think I might miss the 200km this month, but next month - its on !!

      Next month will be significantly harder given it's only a slimmed down 28 days!

      well... the way I figure 50km a week 'should' be do-able

    Just over half way now, 104k. But, unlike many here, I don't do any swimming so not really a level playing field.

    Big thank you to everyone who signed up for this madness-- especially Anthony for creating a group on strava for us: http://app.strava.com/clubs/expatri%C3%A9s-jan-2014-200km-running-challenge-44412. Go ahead and join, if you haven't yet and feel free to share with your friends. Also wanted to give the ladies (the few, the proud!) a little shout out. :) Happy running and happy new year!

    Hi, I am very happy to take part in this challenge; however, I'm not on Facebook and wonder if this is necessary? I'm on Strava so could post a link to that?....

      That's great, thanks, Anthony! I was going to do the same thing since strava might be a better choice than fb anyway since it's specifically for sport. Just joined the group. :)

      Great. Feel free to send the link and invite others. I like your idea for this challenge.
