Anybody want to set up a running goal before the end of the year?
For instance run 100 miles before January first?

I'm thinking of setting a goal for myself, but it helps in the motivation department if other people join in... as I'm pretty competitive and will not be the one that doesn't complete the goal.

Sweet. You can post your progress here. I just competed 10 km, last week and I'm on track to make 100 km before Jan 1st.

Well that depends on how far I get before 1 jan! 100 miles would be a nice goal though. I need to update this too.
