Tips for success

  • Aim for success. Set a goal for reaching 100 miles as an individual or team. Break your goal down into smaller monthly or weekly goals.  For example, commit to log 6 miles a week.
  • Self-monitor. Log miles at the same time and on the same day of each week to create a habit. Seeing your total mileage increase will motivate you to stick with it.
  • Use your team. Share your successes and challenges with each other. Celebrate every achievement and brainstorm solutions to difficulties together.
  • Keep it fresh. Try a variety of activities to encourage fun and variety.
