Goal last month was 38; this month it is 60. It's also really starting to get hot. This is going to be tough.

That's a big jump! Running in the heat sucks, so does running in the cold. Actually just running sucks!

It's only 3 1/4 miles a day. 1st mile and a quarter you're warming up, last 1 1/4 miles your cooling down, so really it's like 3/4 of a mile a day. Anyone can do 3/4 of a mile a day.

I'm imagining my typical week will look like this:
Sunday - fuck it, i'm sleepy.
Monday - fuck it, it's still the beginning of the week.
Tuesday - Uh oh, I need to do 25 miles this week and it's already half over! 10 Mile run
Wednesday - fuck it, i worked hard yesterday
Thursday - fuck it, still recovering
Friday - damn, I need to run, 5 Mile run.
Saturday - Shit, I need to do 10 more miles, 10 Mile run.

It's not my choice. I hired a coach, and that's my training plan for the month. And dagnabbit, if I'm paying for it, I'm running every single mile.

Alright, I'm throwing my hat in and doing the 100mile challenge this month. And now that it's on the internet I feel obligated to complete it or look quite the fool...

Great 60, that means I have to run 60, because there is no way I'm going to let a munchkin like you out distance me

I just had an idea...Alison should organize a MILF run, imagine how many guys would show up for that? We only need one MILF, and Alison could be the one all the guys run after. Of course we would have to have a cause to raise money for...I say a fund to buy thin white cotton t-shirts for MILFs...we need a snazzy acronym for the fund, ideas?

Yeah except your plan has one major flaw: I'm not a MILF. Unless the M stands for munchkin.
