TTT...Challenge Time!!

Let me first say it was very hard to drag my butt out of bed this morning. least I have a smile on my face because of this shiny thing!
Red Sox are World Champs and Fenway was ELECTRIC last night!!!  Love it!!! Ok as you were!

It's that time of year again...time to try to work off the calories we are eating...or for me try to hit my end of the year goal!!  To help me do that I am sharing with you some challenges that I have signed up for that you may want to join in too!

HBBC...Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge hosted by the amazing Amanda is a staple in Fancy Nancy land every year!

I love her points system and the challenge to be as active as I can be!  She also gives points for eating healthy and being good to yourself!  This year I signed up for the complete plan but she has three levels of participation.  It's an awesome challenge and there are TONS of prizes to win!!  It starts November 17th so get over and sign up!!  Let her know Fancy Nancy sent you!!!

Pile on the Miles....Since 2010 I've been joining in on the fun with Monica over at Run Eat Repeat for her Pile on the Miles challenge.

It totally helps me out with my HBBC points and gets me to my year-end mileage goal ahead of schedule!!  This year I'm setting my goal mileage at 125 which would be the highest month of the year....why not go big to end the year?!  You can sign up for free and start piling on your miles!

13 in 2013...I'm pretty certain that I have hit my 13 races in 2013 however I am adding two to the mix this month.  Next week I will be running in and out of cranberry bogs and through the famous Edaville Railroad (ok so maybe just famous around here) for the Edaville Rail Run 5 miler.
Then I'm burning off some turkey before it makes its way to my belly by pushing the ladies and running with my mother-in-law on Thanksgiving in the local We Gather Together 5k.  Last time I ran this I scored a pr of 22:38!  Don't think I'll hit that one this time around but it is always a good race!
The 13 in 2013 is wrapping up but keep your eyes peeled for something special for 2014!!

How are you finishing your year?  Are you in these challenges?  Any other challenges you're doing?


  1. Whoa Challenges! You are ending 2013 with a serious BANG! Go girlie!!!

  2. I am glad I didn't sign up for the 13 in 2013 challenge I never would have made it with all the time I have spent sidelined! Great job on yours! at this point I just want to finish the year healthy. I will have to sign up for pile on the miles, but I am thinking my miles will be lower than yours :)

  3. Go SOX!!!! I love end of the year challenges to keep me on track through the holidays.

  4. I decided not to do Bootie buster this year. It kind of stressed me out last year for some reason. I have done over 13 races for 13 in 2013:) Many were virtuals so luckily those count this year;)

    1. Yes I love that the virtuals counted!! Saved me lots of money!

  5. Ooooh, I wonder what's in store for 2014?

  6. I'm in for Pile on the Miles again. It's one of my favorite challenges!

  7. I just have my own challenge, getting the pregnancy weight off and back into shape. I have my first 5k this weekend!!! That's awesome your 13 in 13!!!

  8. Wow! So many awesome challenges! That's such a great way to stay motivated.
