For the second year in a row, I am going to attempt the Run the Edge Challenge. The idea is to complete 2016 miles on foot in a manner that will be a personal challenge and improve fitness. For me personally, I chose to count total miles overall because it encourages me to work productively around the house as well as take frequent breaks from my sedentary job.
Last year, I managed roughly 1100 miles solo. It was nice to get a year “baseline” of my activity. I went to the gym in the winter months, but then work piled up and I lost momentum in the spring. Looking back, minor illnesses like bronchitis were huge setbacks, so my goal this year is to work up some extra miles at the beginning of the year to prevent from getting off track.
