|The busier the week, the harder the race!|
With 8 more pounds to go for my goal for the year, I am trying to keep my head straight and keep working. And, with this being the hardest time of the year with the combination of busy schedules and holiday treats it becomes harder every day. To keep my focus I have joined a few challenges included the Ford indoor triathlon challenge on The Daily Mile and a weight loss challenge on The Fat Cyclist. This morning a crazy idea came to me in the tub........WHY DON'T I HOST A CHALLENGE???
With one of the busiest times of year, why not make it busier by administering a challenge and joining in myself? That makes so much sense that I am going to ask my 100,000 closest blogging friends to join me, because you guys aren't busy enough anyways!!!!!
The challenge starts to 12:00 am whereever you are on 12/20/10 and all results are due to me by Midnight 12/24/10. Between these dates you must swim 1.2 miles, bike 56 miles, and run/walk 13.1 miles in any order and in as many segments as needed to make the distance. Once you join (or by end of Tuesday) I will provide the official spreadsheet for tallying your results. I don't care if the miles are outdoors, on trainers, treadmills, or via pacing around your dining room table (yeah, I do that)
If you don't have access to a pool, you don't run, or you don't have a bike, join anyways. If you compete two legs and you are the only person that signed up I'll give you the prizes just for your effort.
This is a surprise. The winner will receive a care package with a value ranging from $50 - $70.30 (depending how nice santa is to me). It will be a care package suited for an endurance king; with nutrition items, socks, maybe some gels, or tools, gift cards, or any Christmas presents I get and don't like (we call that regifting).
Oh yes, there is a catch. If you have followed for some time then you know I am weird. So how could I have a challenge this simple? I wouldn't. There will be up to two mysterious sub-challenges announced later in the week. Nothing too crazy and nothing that will take any additional time to complete the challenge.
To Join the Challenge!!!!!!!!!!!
First, follow my blog. Second, leave a comment. Third, send me an email at Tucker_lr (at) yahoo. com so I can email you back the spreadsheet. As a bonus share with a friend by facebook, a link on your blog, or twitter.
You must join by the Midight 12/21/10.
I swear my
worst best ideas come to me in the tub!!
