I’m tempted to call this the 2nd Annual 100 Days Challenge because it is, in fact, the second year we’re doing this. That being the case it might make sense to give everyone a bit of the history of the Challenge.
I was “banged up” for most of 2010. In 20 years of running, walking, cycling and other activity I’d never really been injured. I had some aches and pains early on when I tried to do too much too soon, but nothing that lasted more than a few days to a couple of weeks.
When I tweaked my sacroiliac joint in January of 2010 I set in motion a series of recovery attempts and setbacks that lasted until June. Somewhere around May 1 I popped my cuboid joint out [riding a motorcycle, not running] and didn’t get that diagnosed until September.
By December of 2010 I knew that I needed to get back into a routine of activity and I knew that if I was responsible to other folks it would help. I went to my Facebook page and with the push of the “RETURN” key the 100 Days Challenge was born.
In the next few weeks I’ll be posting my thoughts on the 100 days, and the year of being active. But for now, I just invite you to join me in the 2012 Challenge.
The rules are simple. Choose to move, intentionally, for 30 minutes every day for the first 100 days of 2012. It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you do it ON PURPOSE.
