Do it for 'Merica!

If you haven't been keeping up with the radio show, or haven't seen any of the recent twitter activity from our friends at Bring Back the Mile, here's what you NEED to know right now:

Bring Back the Mile has engaged in a friendly but spirited competition with MarathonTALK in the U.K. and The Naked Runners from the Land Down Under to see which country truly has the right to claim the MILE as their own. The premise is simple: between September 3rd and September 16th, you run one flat out mile, and record your time. It's that easy!

If you're fortunate enough to be a runner in Baltimore, and particularly for our regulars at TNT, we will be holding our event tonight at the track. Of course, we'll do more of a workout to follow, but we'll start with a one mile race. The weather tonight is perfect, and of course there could not be a better day to honor the fortitude of our great country than today, Patriot Day.

Here's a little more information on the Magic Mile Global Team Challenge and then when you're ready to log your result, you just register on MarathonTALK's site.

If you are not in Baltimore, you can find other events in your area, or start your own - but hurry, there's only a few days left! It doesn't matter whether you are a sub 4 minute miler, or a 20 minute miler, the important thing is that you're getting out there and challenging yourself. So get out there and do it!
