One Mile Challenge?

Some guys at work have quite boldly challenged me to a one mile challenge. As in . . . they were talking a lot of shit and saying that there was no way that I could beat them! I wasn't having any of that, so I said "Let's do this!"

In one week from today, I will be racing a mile against:

  • A 27 year old, out of shape, smoker (in his defense he still has some MI state records in swimming on the high school level)

  • A 25 year old ex college soccer player. Hasn't worked out since college.

  • A 35 year old who runs 2 milesx 5 days a week (around 15:00) and lifts 6 days per week --> who is also known as my fiance. He ran the Turkey Day Mile in 6:56 w/my little brother and wasn't winded.

I'm the most worried about the fiance! But, I don't think that any of them will approach the mile the right way; i.e., they will start SUPER fast!

AND ... the want to do it at lunch (90 degree weather). So, I think that is an advantage to me! :)


Track yesterday was hard. I ran at 6:3oPM instead of AM and it was 85 degrees. The workout was 1200 400 1200 400 1200 400

I ran: 4:48 94 4:55 94 4:58 89


Ran 6 this morning as a recovery!


  1. Those "poor" guys are not going to know what hit 'em! Haha! Have fun!

  2. It's hard to run when it's 85 degrees, that's what happened on my run yesterday.

  3. thoughts? smash those boys and make them regret the challenge.

  4. Sounds like the boys are in for a beatdown. Drop the hammer on 'em.

  5. Go Jaime!!!! You can beat those boys!!!! GOOD LUCK!

  6. I want to be there for this! When is it?! Jaime you got it! GIRL POWER

  7. nice workout! you are going to kill it against them!

  8. This needs a webcast. I can't wait to hear how it goes! You can do it.
