Run This Year: 2,013 miles in 2013

Run This Year: 2,013 miles in 2013

I’m proud to announce that I have teamed up with Tiffany of @RunningHutch to present this challenge to all of you… to RUN THIS YEAR.

That’s right, run 2,013 miles in 2013.

We’re inviting all of you to join in on the challenge. 2,013 sounds like a lot of miles, because it is. But that’s part of the fun, right? You can break it up like this:

2,013 miles:

  • 5.516 miles per day
  • 38.72 miles per week
  • 167.75 miles per month
  • 76.84 marathons per year
  • 671 runs to Starbucks (if your Starbucks is 3 miles away)

There are tons of ways to get started at reaching your goal. Tiffany and I will be hosting monthly challenges and chats to help motivate you and encourage you to RUN THIS YEAR.

Grab the official badge and let everyone know you’ve accepted the challenge:

Do you have any goals for 2013?

  3. This seems like a lot of miles, but I am going to try it. What do I have to lose? Happy New Year.

  4. I just want to keep track of my miles better. Maybe next year when my nagging injury is gone I can commit to that far! Also, drink coffee and eat chocolate. That’s my resolution.

    My goal is to be mindful and live in the present! Moving forward :)

  7. Great challenge! If I tracked my mileage a bit more than I do, I’d join you. But looking at the weekly mileage, I know I am already there, so at least there’s that! Enjoy it.

  8. Wow…2013 in 2013. I like the sound of that…that’s a big commitment, lots of miles, but I like the challenge. I might just do it!

  9. Goals are up in today’s post? I did 1600 in 2012…hmmm..when I start marathon training I just might hit 2013 in 2013!

  10. AWESOME! You guys will totally kill that goal, no doubt!

  11. I love this! When I mostly ran, these mileage challenges helped motivate me to get out the door. And the group accountability is great! I can’t commit this year with Ironman training taking precedence, but I’ll certainly spread the word!

  12. 2,013 miles might just be out of my realm of possibility. I am into more cross-training now and less running. I am looking to be stronger this year though–which I hope will in turn improve my running! Best of luck running 2013 into the ground. ;-)

  13. Amazing goal! I’m still deciding on a distance goal for the year. More than 1000 but not quite 2013. One of my goals is to run a half, full, 50k and my first 50 miler. I’m in in for the long run in 2013 :)

  14. Adorable video, two of my favorite run bloggers doing some great stuff! While 2013 miles is not in my plans (really don’t want to put mileage pressure on myself when trying to get pregnant!), I will be cheering you guys on!!

  15. I don’t know that I will be able to get to 2013, but there is no harm in trying :)

  16. Great vid! That is a whole lotta miles!!

    I WILL get here! But prob not this year :)
    Awesome challenge.

  17. Wow, this challenge is for serious runners. Seeing as how I’m having a baby in the middle of the year, it will probably be pretty hard for me to get this done.

    I’m working on my 2013 goals now so I’ll figure out a way to try to stay connected to the challenge.

    I love Tiffany. She was one of my running buddies from Hood to Coast.

  18. What an awesome challenge! Love your video, too. Hmm, let me think about this… I average 30-40 miles a week, so I think I could do it but just barely… and I was planning to build in some rest weeks… but I love a challenge!

    Reply
  19. OMG I love this video. The two of you are awesome. What an incredible challenge. Ummm, my goal for 2013 is to run an injury-free half? That gets me 13 miles…

    Reply
  20. Awesome idea! 2013 miles is a little to much, but maybe I will join running 2014 miles in 2014! I am looking forwards following you on your journey!

  21. WOW – that’s a LOT of miles! I love running but also really work on weights/strength training too – wonder how that much mileage for me would work with a weights schedule too? (Do you lift?) LOVE the video and contemplating the challenge!

  22. You rock and I’m so going to cheer you on for this! Sadly…I have not a hope to get that kind of mileage in. Seeing as my first month will likely be a large goose egg. All in the hopes that years from now I can be rock star like you. :)

  23. What a cool goal!

  24. I LOVE the video!!!!!!! You two are soooo awesome. I don’t think my mileage is quite there…. but I’ll cheer you on!!

  25. I LOVE a challenge! I am most definitely IN! Thanks for breaking it down for me – I was having a hard time with that number but now that I see exactly how many Starbucks trips that is, I can relate. ;)

  26. You guys are going to kill it- can’t wait to root you along!

    I’d join, but am having a baby within the week, then have to take 8 weeks off- so can’t run until March. I certainly won’t hit 2013 miles, but i’ll do my best to get halfway!

    GOOD LUCK!

  27. I am so glad i am not alone!!

  28. I will pass, thanks! Good luck to you, but I’m happy with about 30 miles per week which is a bit short of your premeditated goal…

  29. So…it’s July 23, and I am on track to get to 2013K (1250.82 miles if my calculations are correct.) It’s been crazy to find that I can do this (with my own adaptations). Thanks for the challenge, and the idea to adjust to metric! :)
