Here are a few of the runners who sent me pics:
(The drastic difference in running apparel is because some of these people are in Florida and some are in Kansas or Canada!)
Philip's sister, Jessica
My brother, Mark
Emerson (his sister, Violet did some, too and his parents, Ellen and Jason both completed the challenge)
Jade and Eden
Philip's brother, Isaac
Katie (her mom, Erin did it as well)
Jessica and her friend, Jackie
Moriah, Philip and Keenan
Philip and I out for a late night run
We had toyed with the idea of doing our final run right after midnight and getting it over with, but by the time midnight came around, we were all too tired to head out into the dark and cold! =) We had a nice family run later this morning...
After our last mile
WOOHOO, it's over!!
I ordered medals for all the runners who completed the challenge, so after we finished it was time for the "medal ceremony" at our house =)
Shaking hands even, very official ;)
I gave Keenan and Moriah each a certificate, entitling them each to a breakfast date with me and a new book. I'm sooo proud of them!
Way to go, Bud!
Giving each other our medals
Love this guy! I was really surprised when he decided to get in on the challenge, and I'm so proud of him for sticking with it, even though it meant that most of his runs were late at night in the dark after he got home from work!!
This is what the medals look like
I was hoping to match the mileage of the first time I did this challenge, back in 2013, and did do that, finishing with 80 miles (105 total, since I actually started running daily on November 14th). I will not continue to run every day, but plan to run three times a week from here on out. Not sure yet if we'll do this again next year. What about you? Would you join us? =)
