    Small improvement to the spreadsheet to create more accurate prediction of months to completion. For the most accuracy, make sure you only log miles *after* your start date (e.g. if your start date is 8/31/2013 don't log the whole month of August!), and enter an up-to-date partial amount for the current month.

    272 for October is a new monthly best for me. I'm at 7,693 lifetime miles, 2307 to get to 10,000.

    I wanted to insert myself, but I now just posted at the bottom.
    I started logging my miles during my first year of undergrad (fall 2009). Since then, I've run 5367.2 miles (with some left unlogged).
    Long term, I want to log at least 70,000 miles by the year 2070. I'll be 79 then, so I think I've given myself (optimistic as always) a lot of time to work with.
    For this challenge, which is set for next year (in case I'll be using/able to access MFP that long), I am aiming for a slightly conservative goal of 2170 miles in 14 months.

    I think I am addicted. I added my stats. Don't tell my tennis team.

    Can I add myself and join in the fun ?!? I'm not sure if this is a open thing and I don't want to intrude!

    Can I add my goal of miles for this year? or does it have to me for longer?

    You can set any start date, finish date, and goal you want. Everyone seems to have done the end of 2014 but you can put in whatever date you want. Just ideally you should be setting very long-term goals here.

    250 for February. There is some odd data in the sheet right now. I may delete some folks if they don't update soon.
