Out of curiosity, what is the craziest story you have from trying to get a run in to stay eligible for the competition?

Well I guess I get a bonus run this week, cause the one I just did won’t count... accidentally turned the power off my treadmill instead of pushIng the pause/stop button 🤦‍♀️

That was a bit close! Fell asleep earlier and woke up just in time to squeeze my run in - finished at 11:29pm! Glad I got it in :)

My fastest run yet, not bad since I broke my leg and ankle six months ago.
