The 59 mile challenge

I am stupid. Plain and simple.

I have this incredible friend on Facebook who has lost over 100 LBs. She has been one of my inspirations as is to many. She posts at the beginning of every month "Like this status and I'll bike 2 miles for every like". Easy enough right? She got 121 likes on her status. That is 242 miles. Yes 242 miles. That is further than driving from Round Rock, Texas all the way into the ocean. So I got the bright idea well hell I want to do that too. I'll do .5 miles of walking/jogging or running. I thought ok, i'll get 50-60 likes and have to do 25-30 miles which is easily done and i'll kick start myself back into losing weight etc. Well holy crap.....

Yep 118 likes as of the time of this blog entry. I tried to say well I'll cut this off at 80 likes but as my friend Mark pointed out, I never put any clause or time limit on this. So there it is. My goal is 59 miles this month. I may not make that goal but I am sure going to try!

I'll post the result from Endomondo at the end of the month to see how close I came to this. Thanks for everyone who liked the status!
