This year once again the Dirt in Your Skirt group held their Summer 100 mile challenge. The challenge–run 100 miles between June 1st and September 1st and receive a Muckle (mileage buckle.)
Participants self-monitor their mileage and report it to the group at the end of each week. When your 100 miles is completed, it is reported on the group’s website–adding a bit of a competitive challenge to the event.
My goal was to complete the challenge in three weeks, but unfortunately it took me four weeks again this year. I did start the challenge with a half marathon as previously stated, but was unable to raise my weekly mileage due to my continued nursing of injuries from two prior ultras.
As stated in an earlier blog, I do love this concept because it has something for everyone–from a beginner to a seasoned runner. You can set your goal however you’d like–run it in a day or two, a week, a month or use the entire three months.
