You VS 2020 May Update

I can’t believe I hit the 800 km mark and I moved up into the top 4%.  Baring any injuries (knock on wood), I looks like I should have no problem reaching the 1020KM mark by the end of the year.

Our World has Changed

On Monday I was over the moon excited when I was informed that one of my art quilts had been juried into the National Quilt Show.  Just days later and our world has completely changed in a way that no one could have ever dreamed. Like so many events, there may not be a National show this year. We had almost every weekend booked between now and the end of June with dogs stuff.  Sadly, almost everything has been outright cancelled and a few have been tentatively rescheduled. Almost every hour I get a new email from some organization talking about the virus and what they are doing.  I’m just feeling sad and overwhelmed.

I woke up this morning feeling more like myself and ready to take on this new reality.  Even though it was miserably cold I forced myself to go for a work out.

You VS 2020 February Update

YouVs2020Feb

I am pretty happy with my mileage so far.  At almost 300km, I am close to 1/3 of the way through the challenge in only 2 months.  I’m also shocked to see that I am in the top 6% of the 131K people who have signed up for the challenge.

You VS 2020 January Update

Well I have completed the first month of Under Armour’s challenge. Even though we had about 10 days straight of bitterly cold weather I still managed to exceed my goal of 100km a month. I was shocked to see that I am in the top 10%.

Under Armour Challenge

Call me crazy but I have registered for the Under Armour “You VS the Year 2020” challenge. Along with just over 53,000 others, my goal is to log 1022 miles this year. Only 361 days left and 1003.9 miles 😫🤣. On the positive side I am in the top 17%….yikes!
