I run because it's my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I'm going where I'm going and I'm already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise... it's a consistent reward for victory!
Sasha Azevedo

When people ask me why I run, I tell them, there's not really a reason, it's just the adrenalin when you start, and the feeling when you cross that finish line, and know that you are a winner no matter what place you got.
Courtney Parsons

15 miles starting Sunday and ending Saturday... Yep that easy and you know you can do it! Just log your daily miles, the total miles for the week and encourage your fellow challengers to make their goals, yep it's that easy.

"Run when you can. Walk when you must. Crawl if you have to. Just never give up." Dean Karnazes, the Ultramarathon Man

For the folks returning you know that the 15 miles is not the main goal. The main goal is just to get up and get moving, if you don't meet it that's fine and you surpass it, well that just freaking rocks.

For new comers the preferred method of posting miles would be:

Sunday-miles-what you did Monday-miles-what you did Tuesday-miles-what you did So on and so forth, posted daily or when the miles occur...

Total- Running total for the week thus far

As always this is not set in stone, if you post every other day or whatever fits into your schedule, but please try to stay close to the above format.

For those folks that don't do miles

    Need Advice!

    I've been running steady now for a couple weeks plus a soccer game on the weekend. My legs are sore pretty badly the last couple days. Like I'm on the vurge of having cramps and a shin splint. What should I do? :)

    Sounds like you need some rest days built in. Also, start foam rolling (or use a rolling pin - this is easier done if you have someone to help you with the rolling pin). Make sure you have the right kind of running shoes for your feet and the way you run... find a local running store that has someone who will fit you properly and watch you run.. you need to take in the shoes you currently run in so they can better evaluate.

    Sunday I had my best ride to date! I rode 26 mi. I never had to leave bike once to get up a few steep inclines. This time it came naturally to find all the right gears. I rode within 15 min of Newport Beach Ca. I will make the same journey in a couple of weeks. Weather low 70's. Today taking a rest day.

    You'll notice that things often get worse before they get better. This is because we're being prepared and strengthened for all of the marvelous things that await us. We must first learn to crawl before we can walk. As soon as we learn to walk, we will learn to run. Life doesnt stop at one altitude, it goes as high as your willing to travel.
