The Dino-Might 100-mile challenge

Run or walk 100-miles at your own pace, and earn 6 timeless dinosaur-themed pins as you reach each milestone along the way to your antique, bronze finisher medal. 

I started the Dino-Might challenge to reach my goal of walking 30-minutes a day and it did so much more than that. It helped me create a habit I know I'll hold onto for a long time and I even created special memories with my son who LOVES dinosaurs.
