Sister Runner Amy and I have agreed to the Januaryathon Contest 2008. Some people spell it January-a-thon, either way is okay with me, but sometimes the hyphens hurt my fingers.
- Participants must run every day in January.
- Runs must be a minimum of 1 mile daily.
- No daily or weekly maximums.
- Weekly minimum of 10 miles.
Exceptions can only be made for illnesses (self or children.)
The sister who runs the most miles, and everyday, in January gets bragging rights and the ability to taunt the other sister. Relentlessly. In an attempt to get Amy to run a full marathon, I suggested that one sister picks a race and the other has to run it. She would not agree to a full marathon, so we agreed that if I win, Amy would run White Rock again and if I lose, I’ll run the IU Mini with her. Although, I may still get a full marathon agreement in by the end of the month, we’ll see.
