As commented in the previous post, motivation can be a challenging thing to maintain during the long winter months. Especially when it's a cold, snowy winter that makes training outdoors difficult. This year, members of Evotri have a team challenge to keep things interesting.
Participants in the Evotri Iron Challenge have taken it upon themselves to log at least one Ironman each month, meaning the same 140.6 miles of an IM distance race are completed. Everyone is welcome to complete as many multiples as they want, and each successive success at 2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of biking, and 26.2 miles of running qualifies for another "entry" in the challenge.
We are using Plus 3 Network to track our training mileage. In addition to providing a convenient (and free) spot to document training, Plus 3 Network allows us to raise charitable funds for various organizations. For each training mile completed, various companies make small contributions to one of many local, national, and international charitable groups.
For increased motivation
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
