The Dash For Cash

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Results

My local Snap Fitness in Cambridge, MN is having their "Dash For Cash" competition from May 7th to June 29th.  I signed up today. I dont know all the rules but I paid $10, and the goal is that everyone who logs 100 miles on the treadmill by the 29th of June is in the drawing for the money. I think there is a prize for the first 25 miles and a couple other prizes along the way.

My goal is to get to 100 miles.  If I win a prize drawing great, but I am not a big treadmill (or running) type. I know to get there I will burn extra calories and probably lose 10-15 lbs.  So that is the main push.  Today I went 5.18 miles on the treadmill. It took me an hour.  I normally at most go 20 minutes which gets me just short of 2 miles.  Thus, I need to step it up to get to 100 miles and I got of to a good start.  We will see if I will be able to walk tomorrow. I went over 500 calories.  (My wife said I was overweight yesterday, so I guess she knows how to motivate me).
