Pile On The Miles 2012

November is almost upon us and with that the official start to the holiday season will be here. Starting with Thanksgiving, and lasting until the New Year, we start to fill our bellies with all of our favorite treats. I know I am one who has a hard time resisting home cooked meals and delicious desserts! 

With the colder weather, and dark hours before and after work, we also find more excuses to not go for an outside walk or run. I can tell you that just in the past week or so I didn't want to get my butt out of bed for my 5:30 A.M. run in the dark before work. If I didn't have my honey for support and motivation, I think my runs would have been kicked to the curb into the afternoon hours.

I think having some motivation to stay active during the holiday/winter months is important, plus it's nice to keep those holiday pounds off our bodies. So this is why I decided to join up for the Pile On The Miles event that Monica over at Run Eat Repeat is hosting again this year. 
I think she has summed this event up perfectly by saying, "Pile On The Miles is an annual event in blogland where we challenge ourselves to walk or run more during the month of November. The goal is to pile on extra miles not pounds during this food filled time of year!".

Not only is keeping off the pounds exciting, but everyone also has a chance to win some pretty cool prizes while staying active for the month. You have until October 31st to sign up. Go ahead and click on the "Pile On The Miles" link below and check out all the details for yourself.


So my friends, who's with me on this fun adventure? How many miles will you pledge to walk or run?


  1. I would love to join you but unfortunately other circumstances will keep me from playing along. You should be able to rack up some good miles!

    1. I hope you are well! I know you were telling me you were having some issues. I pledged completing 100 miles in the month, but we'll see how much I actually get in after I run the marathon on the 4th. I know I am going to have a week of just walking. I thought this would be a great way to motivate me to keep moving after the marathon. Missed seeing you at Rhinebeck! Are you going to do a recap? :-)
