12 in 2012

Since I didn't get married on 11.11.11, I decided instead to do another alliterative challenge, 12 half marathons in 2012, otherwise known as 12 in 2012. I can't take credit for the idea though. It was thought up by Jill. Not only did she think up the idea, but she also went so far as to find sponsors and to organize everything for us. Sponsors so far are iFitness and Chica Bands.

You can run one a month, or instead you can run 12 in one month. If you are crazy. My plan is to try to run one a month, but probably some months (like January) will have none and other months (like September and other fall months) will have extras. This is going to be a challenge, but it will also be a lot of fun. I also want to run some trail races this year and I am also planning on running The Relay  in support of Organs R Us and a friend of mine who needs a kidney transplant. So, it will be a busy year.

You can do it too! All  you need to do is commit to 12 half marathons in 2012 and be prepared to blog about your races a little bit (which most of us are already doing)! If you are interested, go to Jill's website and email her to get details! This is a fun way to be fit and challenge yourself in 2012 and you will have the support of everyone else who is doing it!

So, who is in?

What goals do you have for 2012?


  1. Oh my gosh! That is ambitious and I am somewhat in awe!

    I am going to run my first in May and if I like it, may do another in July and in September....

    Good for you. I will watch your progress and cheer you on from the sidelines for sure!

  2. Hmm-that is a very cool idea-i think it is do-able. Might have to see how fit I am in December before i commit!

  3. Wait, I think you misspoke. You said you'd be crazy to run 12 halfs in one month. I think you meant you'd be crazy to run 12 halfs in one year. Silly lady :) Haha, just kidding. Amazing goal! I know you can do it!

  4. That is an amazing challenge. Would be a lot of fun to have a such a full race schedule.

  5. Oh wow, this is amazing! I should think about doing it... I would have to really do more marathons in the summer and fall because I don't think I will want to run them outdoors in our bitterly cold winter! ;) I have to think about this, but I just might join you!

  6. That is so awesome! I love the idea of 12 in 12... I need to think of something to do!

  7. That is an incredibly ambitious and super awesome goal! I will not be joining you in this challenge, though. I have been trying to run fewer races actually because of budget reasons and whatnot. I can't wait to follow you on this adventure!

  8. I'm still working on my goals for 2012, but 12 half marathons will definitely NOT be on mine. I'm in awe of you.
