One Year Runniversary Two-Mile Virtual Run

To celebrate that day last February when I decided to hit the streets and begin my running comeback, Maine Mom on the Run will be hosting a Two-Mile Virtual Run!
Why two miles? Because that is the distance I covered my first time out! Looking back, I'm not sure why I decided to start with two miles rather than just one or even just half a mile. I honestly can't remember. I do remember it being hard. I do remember walking at least twice. The course I picked has a pretty steep hill, like close to needing climbing equipment steep. What a dope!

Get out your ropes and carabiners!
My time that momentous day: 20:25. Really not that bad, all things considered. I hadn't run in years and was carrying 30 extra pounds. I ended up running this loop a few times before moving on to other routes. One, I was upping my mileage. Two, it crosses over Route 1 in Wiscasset twice. Not so bad in the winter months, but I wasn't about to try it during summer traffic. I keep away from downtown like it's the plague at that time.

So in honor of my One Year Runniversary come run two miles with me! At any time during the first two weeks of February (2/1-2/14) go on a two-mile run. It doesn't have to be a separate run, designate two miles in one of your regularly scheduled runs if you like!

The contest starts on February 1st at 12:01 AM EST and will run until  February 15th at 12:01 AM EST. Use the Rafflecopter options to make your entries. For the photo entry you can print out a race bib to make it official. At the end of the two week window I'll draw a name using for the winner of a runner's goodie bag.
