We’ve already torn through the midway point of the September Miles Madness Competition and you guys are doing AWESOME! In looking through the numbers, most of you guys have bested yourselves from Week 1 and those results will be shining through in your upcoming races and workouts. Running is all about consistency.
So where do we stack up against Team Ashley? The totals look like:
Just Week 2 Team Cait:
Just Week2 Team Ashley: 593.6
Running Total Team Cait:
Running Total Team Ashley: 1183.4
[Note: OKay, so because I got last minute responses to some of the runners I did one update tonight with these totals. However, as of now Week 2 is officially closed and the numbers are in...I'm going to have to be a hard-butt now and stand firm. GREAT JOB you guys and we are closing the gap!]
So as you can see we’ve got a little ground to make up on Team Ashley, but I’m not worried. races are run from smart pacing and I know my team are going to be rallying come crunch time. So let’s get after those miles, runnerchicks and runnerdudes!

Great job to all of you and your excellent training. I’d also like to do some quick shout-outs to a few of our team members:
Julia @ Pain, pride and perseverance went on a REAAAAALLLY long run this weekend. Actually it was a race…she just conquered the ultra and in finishing the 50 Mile Northface Endurance Challenge she proved to herself and everyone else just how much will, tenacity, and drive can force the human body to conquer extreme challenges. And don’t forget to add to that the ability to dream big and set big goals, like 50 miles worth of goals, maybe?? And let’s be honest, all of us are a little jealous of the full-on post-race assault she could do on the grub-train afterwards. CONGRATS, Julia!
Another shout-out to Mr. Staples over there for just about kissing the 100 miles/week mark. Let’s tip our little running hats or do a Garmin beep salute to our heavy hitter.
I know you all are getting it done out there, so if you have a race or something that you are proud of for the week and want a little what’s-what send me a line and brag on yourself. And you could wind up a spotlight superstar. I mean a superstar on the already coolest team ever, well sheesh, that puts you up there darn near
Mo Farah…you get the picture.
Keep up the awesome work guys and hope you’re having a great Sunday!
1) What’s a highlight for you over the past week?
2) What’s a goal you’d like to achieve for Week 3?
3) What have you been up to this weekend, running and otherwise?
