Recap and New Challenge

Final count

Nils: 100, Nicole 83 in 363 days.

And in other news I've signed up for the 2011 MDI Marathon.  It's scheduled to be held at 8AM on October 16th, 2011 so I have tons of time to train but I'm going for a finish under four and a half hours.  I've never raced anything longer than 5 miles and never run longer than 16 at once (back in college) so this will be a good test.  Instead of a h2h counter I'll be posting a training mileage counter which will start at 0 and then just add up until race day.  Any guesses for the total mileage?  I'm thinking it'll be close to 1500 over the course of the next 11 months as I'd like to start slowly (at around 15-20 miles/week) and then build up to more like 70-80 before I start to taper.  This is all premature of course; I could probably start training in July of next year and be fine to finish it.  I'm going to work on some other challenges in the meantime as well and I'll just pepper in training updates as I go.
