How do you motivate yourself to get up so early?

Question • 13 answers

Inside or Outside?

Question • 8 answers

I am particularily fond of the treadmill. Is this challenge specifically for running outside or can I complete if I go for a run in the gym before 7?

Newest answer

I did see the "hit the pavement" statement, but I bet no one would complain if you hit the dirt on a trail I think the treadmil would work.  We all work with what we have available for us, and being and feeling safe is an important issue.  A...
