Marcothon 2015

This month I was introduced to Marcothon by a running buddy. A December based running challenge to help you stay motived in the hard month before Christmas and to help keep you fit!

The idea is simple. Regardless of your ability or speed, you run every single day in December for the minimum of 25 minutes or 3 miles (depending on what comes first).

My first Marcothon run was hard going as I haven’t run in over a week, but it was a good way to kick-start this month of running.

Day 1: Hot and sweaty post Marcothon run!

I’ve never run every day for an entire month before so this is a new challenge for me. I best pencil in the Christmas Day Parkrun!

You can find out more about the challenge on Facebook or Twitter.

Happy running!

    Commendable I’m sure. But surely 3 miles will always come before 25 miles? Unless you run backwards? Or start at the 25 miles marker and run towards the 3 mile post (22 miles)? Whatever, back to my foxhole. Trying to remember whose birthday is tomorrow.

      Good to see someone read it and spotted the typing error. Now updated and will make far more sense. Hmm, birthday…I wonder who…
