It's no secret to anyone who's my friend on Daily Mile or Facebook (or has the misfortune to sit near me at lunch) that I managed to just barely squeak by on the 100 mile challenge for October. I finished my last .5 miles at about 9 on the last possible night. Procrastinators of the world, unite...tomorrow.

It's no secret that you always have more time to fit in exercise than you think you have. I ran and walked 41.3 miles in 6 days. I never would have thought I could fit those miles in. It didn't help that I'm seriously wimpy about running more than one day in a row and walked about 18 of that last 41 miles.
(It's no secret that walking takes a LOT longer than running.)

It's no secret that I'm a little competitive. Sitting with a week to go and a 40-mile deficit, I didn't even have a thought of finishing until I read a comment from someone in the same boat: "It is going to be a long week for those who are actually going to get the 100 miles. This would be including myself". And I immediately thought, Well if he can do it, I can do it!
It's no secret that I have awesome friends who support me and cheer me on, even in silly challenges that don't really mean anything. You guys are the best.
