Who are these people who do 200,000 in the first 2 days of a challenge? Don't they have jobs to go to?

47,000 so far for me. Trying to stick to 5 or 10 a day.

Re: Holiday Challenge 2012. History, Pins

Completed my 11th year in a row. The pin arrived today and I was wondering if any of you other long-timers did it in 2001 (the first year, I think), and was there a pin for that year? I didn't do it that year, but my curiosity remains.

Just to answer my own question (thanks C2!), the Holiday Challenge was first offered in 2000. In 2000 and 2001 there was no pin, but a T-shirt in 2001. Pins started being given for the 200,000 meter finishers in 2002. (I ilike the pins, but it would be nice if they gave, rather than offered for sale, T-shirts - I still a few of my old ones around).
