Who wants to run around the moon with me this year?

So was sitting here on the job hunt, thinking I wanted to go for a run, but wished I had a running buddy. Remembering back to the days before ICOK 2013 we had a pretty good group going for motivation to run/walk and lose weight. Therefore, I thought of all of you! So, I think we should create a spreadsheet and motivate each other to get going again. The moon is approximately 7,000 miles around, and I think Icrontic can run around it this year. Let's start today, you can walk, run, elliptical, or any other activity you can record in miles!

WHO'S WITH ME!? @TiberiusLazarus, @tushon, @troublebaker, @WAGSFTW, @fatcat, and everyone else who wants tooooo joinnnnn ussss :D

    Can elliptical count? That's what I do indoors when I can't do some trail running outside. And how about walking? (stretch the rules?) :P

    I think running/walking/elliptical, any mileage activity should count! LET'S ALL GET MOTIVATED!!!!!!

    Going to the gym in 2 hours! I'll count it! Want to start the Google spreadsheet for us?

    As soon as my knee is back to tip top shape, physical activity shall resume (e.g. I'm walking around a bunch and stretching to make that happen).

    Anyone else use RunKeeper? I usually use that when I do my runs, would be nice to set up some challenges in there

    If walking counts, I'm totally down for this.

    Any activity that is mileage counts! :D

    Looks like it's time to measure my stride and actually get some use out of this fitbit. :D

    I need to get my running game back up anyhow, I'm game. :)
  • ardichokeardichoke Icrontian
    In, I guess. I take it we're tracking from the start of February?

    I assumed we were tracking from the "today" that was in the original post. If we're tracking from Feb 1 I need to add some numbers.
  • HumerusMegHumerusMeg Something, something medical professional, Fitness bitch, Sexy chef Austin Icrontian
    You can do either, I'm using Feb 12th, we can go to the 1st if you guys want to @ardichoke, and @midga

    Love it. The cardio machines at the gym at work have a login feature, and track your time, distance, calories burned, etc. And I can view a report by month so I don't have to do any math (unless I do mileage activities outside of the gym). Sweet!

    I put down my number going back to the start of February. That was easiest for me since Endomondo just throws that number right up in mah face.
  • midgamidga "There's so much hot dog in Rome" ~digi (> ^.(> O_o)> Icrontian
    I don't care either way. I've got the statistics for both :D

    Can't I just ride around the moon by myself? I wish there was a booo that I could add to a comment for every time Nick tags me for something.
  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    NO!

    My wife has a 5K to benefit her school that we're doing next week. Will add the distance. Also there's this.

    My total driving distance on Mars is 4.97 km. Anyone on Earth want to run a #5K when I reach that mark? #Curiosity5K #LetsMove
