!!Armageddon 100k!!
« on: August 29, 2020, 08:31:14 PM »
FINE NAO!!

***HERE IT IS***

The Armageddon 100k!!

YES!!  That's Right!!  ONE HUNDRED KILOMETERS!!  (kilometres)

For Americans, that's just over 62 miles.

The goal here is to run/jog/walk a grand total of 100 Kilometers by the 21st of December, 2020.
**First Day of Winter**

I -really- don't care if you run, jog, or walk.  Just get your distance in!!

Do the math however you want.  It's a little over 6 kilometres per week, or about 3.8 miles.

Use this thread to post pictures of your journey!!

Whose With Me?!?!

We'll start with your first post.

This is NOT a race!!

It's all about getting outside, completing this goal together, and encouraging one another!!

BUT WAIT!!!
THERE'S MORE!!!


There are a few options if you want to make it a little more fun!!

Option A:  The Nao Way
You complete the 100k barefoot!!

Option B:  Double or Nothing!!
You double the distance!!

Option C:  The Double Nao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You double the distance AND do it barefoot!!!

Option D:  The Family Fifteen!!
Fifteen miles instead of 60+
Can be with kids or a stroller.

125000 steps or so for an average height person with a standard stride.

I'll probably do 200k since I ought to be running 12k a week but I haven't been. I graduated a course in April that required a lot of ruckrunning and just haven't been good about cardio since then.

I'm not posting pictures of my fatass in the before shots, though. :P
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

I took inspiration from this post to walk around the city today instead of taking transit.

7.5 miles yesterday, a little under 7 today.

I have to get my diet tied down a little better. The amount of calories I burn should see me shedding weight like crazy but I <3 beer and pasta.

Okay, I'll bite. I didn't keep track, nor did I take a picture. However, me and my boys went on about a mile or so walk today. We plan on doing it often, and I'll start keeping track from now on.

6 miles today over lunch.

Not as fun as you’d hope.

We might have to add a Family option for people who are participating with kids.

Maybe the Family Fifteen (miles).

Who Knows!!

Only 1 mile today. I went to the Doc and then instead of staying active I laid around with the baby and watched Trollhunters. Pretty sweet.
