Challenge: Nike+ Run Like a Lion
Intro: They say March either comes in like a Lamb or a Lion. We want you to attack it like the latter.
Goal: Synch 50 miles between March 7th (12A) and March 31 (10:59P) [Details]
Swag: Hit it hard this March for your chance to win a pair of Nike’s most innovative new shoes - the Lunar Haze.
I always love a good challenge. It keeps me honest, and prevents me from procrastinating on my training, especially when I have a race scheduled. I am not expecting to lead the pack and win the shoes (though it would be nice), but I am going to push myself to knock out this challenge prior to the last week of the month. Naturally, I am leaving some room for negotiation, but I really want to stick to my guns. DC is coming up faster than I would care to admit, and I would like to nail a better time on my 5K.

The intimidation factor of weighing in drops dramatically when I know I've maintained a healthy diet and adhered to my running schedule. Its only after one of those long, lazy, leave-me-alone weekends, that the showdown causes me to break a sweat. My weekends from now through the end of April are booked solid, so I have to make sure that I am keeping healthy, taking time for myself, and roaring through like the lioness I am.
