Hi there!

NEWSFLASH POST!!!

πŸ’₯ We are now very close to halfway round the MOON!! The results of Ju-Ju's quick poll last week suggest that you are very happy to try and get further around it by continuing the challenge for the rest of September (until Sunday 30th).

Please go here to the pinned post to update us with YOUR RESULTS:

AND TELL EVERYONE - THE MORE THE MERRIER!!

πŸ’₯ We had many many friends running in RACE EVENTS this past weekend, check out the race reports from marco83, benwill, HoagyM, and LittleNell83! Any more to come?

There are some extremely exciting events in our calendar coming up this weekend!!

πŸ’₯ POLLS!! The results of our most recent important research project suggest that the best Jelly Babies are...

THE RED ONES!!!!

More seriously though, I was particularly thrilled by the response to the Big Half Marathon Poll a few weeks ago, and we are now thinking about the possibilities of starting a half marathon training plan later this year.

So we've already run across the visible part of the Moon! Just the "dark side" left to conquer! Well done to all our Lunar Runners (Or should we be called Loonies or Moonies from now on?)

Oooh, I'll be waiting patiently for a HM plan. I'm still trying to crack that distance and hoping this winter it'll happen 🀞

Hi, just a question: are we going to keep having weekly updates on this challenge or are we adding miles here? last week I picked in miles (even though I was very tired from the 10K).

I am very happy as I managed 50.2 miles!!!

This brings my grand total (counting from the beginning of this) to 251.2 miles (or 404 Km), which I think, is my record for 6 weeks worth of running.

My plan has me to taper now for the HM (2 weeks to go!!!). So I guess I have given most of what I had ;)

hope you are all enjoying your running!!!

Marco

I will be posting an update each week, but I'd prefer it if people would share their results here:

healthunlocked.com/marathon...

But I will update your total to 251.2 mi (404 km) 😊

I wrote my text there where you are suggesting, and then cat and pasted it here cause I thought it was more recent...

thanks for the info :)

It doesn't really matter 😊 I'm trying out a few new ways of streamlining things - all experimental!

BTW - well done! You are far and away the biggest contributor to our attempt round the Moon 😊
