  • Brum Gucci says: I think this target is tough with a family and work but will provide some motivation to up the miles...

  • R4R says: one step at a time
  • Two Towels. says: This Year of 2009 is to be a mammoth mileage year for me, it needs to be, London Marathon my first in 2009 :-)
  • 5hep says: Injuries meant that I missed the target last year by loads of miles - I'll be more careful in 2009!!
  • panad says: managed 833 in 2008, hoping for 1000 this time........
  • Nephi says: Target to do by the end of September so if not in the hall of fame by then a good beating with the haddock required :)

    Got a marathon and ironman in 2009 so thats 52 miles in the bag!!
  • ChrisVilla says: Fit and raring to go!(after ive had a nap!:)).
  • SilentTim says: Am I right in saying that fetch only adds training runs to your total and not races as well?

    Anyway, I've had a low month in Jan, but if I keep to my goal of 20 miles per week for the rest of the year should just about make 1000 miles...
  • mitch01 says: did 859 miles last year hoping to go over 1000 miles this year.
  • KAZZY73 says: Its looking good lol x
  • firstofficerspong says: 1000 in 2009 is a sensible target for me...joining the 1200 in 2008 group was just me showing off
  • swabsterstu says: Started running in June 2008, so a clean state, let's get it done.

  • HayleyB says: Got to over 700 this year, despite not logging January and almost three months of injury, so 1000 is just the right target. I hope.
  • lozza says: Will be my third time of trying to hit 1000.... this year for definite!

    Mid year update - injured for 6 weeks then slow comback. Currently nearly 80 miles behind, and cancelled my marathon. I can still do this....
  • Dina Mo says: I have a pair of '1000 mile' socks and I'm gonna do some market research in the process!
  • m4cca says: If I tell everyone that I'm going to aim for 1000 miles, then I have to do it, right!? (even though my target was only 900!) something's gotta get me out of bed each morning!
  • GlennR says: Aiming to carry on with last year's effort.
  • Treacle says: I'll be going for even more next year - but wouldn't dream of leaving my 1000 mile group!
