Today was the first REAL challenge in the 12athon…. 12 miles on January 12, 2012.  I have already plotted out my challenges for each month of 2012 on a spreadsheet complete with challenge points and tabulations…. cause I’m a NERD like that.  I had to change my plan from my original (the Polar Bear) because it wasn’t going to be colder than 32degrees outside.  Instead I did the “Sunrise” and the “Dirty Dozen”.

I set out at 7am when it was still dark wearing 18 articles of clothing (not including shoes).  At each mile I had to remove one item of dirty clothes – some were easier to remove than others – all in all leaving me pretty chilly on my last mile.  I did make sure I was left with my unmentionables and capris/tank covering this super tan (sarcasm) bod of mine.

Glad Heather joined me for the first 3.5miles cause I’m on this wheat/gluten/grain free and low-carb thing this past week and lemme tell you – going from 150-200 carbs a day to 40ish takes a TOLL on your running.  I think I’m slowly adjusting – but that’s another story.

Anyway- I racked up 25.2 points today and here is my photo proof.  Check it out!  Oh and its never too late to start the 12athon challenge – you will just have to wait until Feb 12, 2012 to run :)  Start your scheming now!!
