Would anyone LIKE to be challenged?? Or conversely - wish NOT to be? Maybe a Poll Steve?

I have a couple of good 'uns already - and they probably already know who they are! :)

No prizes Granty....just pride!

Self challenges not allowed Sara....not here anyway!!

I think we'll just challenge based on what folk say on the forum SB

Keep 'em reasonable and attainable though folks.

NB TO ADMIN
COULD THERE BE A LIST KEPT OF THE CHALLENGES/WHEN MADE/WHEN COMPLETED?

I was going to challenge you!!!! Doh!!!!

How about holding 8.0 - 8.11 minute miles for 5 miles.....before the end of the month? That should see you on track Sara! :d

Hows about a single sub 5min mile before the end of May JBB? ;)
haha. I was going to challenge you to do two sub five minute miles back to back ;)

I will accept your challenge, but may have to wait until June as I plan to do a a few 1 mile races, but was avoiding May because of the marathon. There is a one mile race on May 28, which I might still do, but probably too close to the marathon and may affect my ability to meet Sturunner's challenge of a sub 3 marathon ;)

This sounds like a great idea, but I'm not even a 'proper' runner yet. I'm sure I'll be up for a few challenges in the future though, once I've got my first 5km out of the way in June.
