A.M. stands for Ante Meridiem which is latin for before midday.
For our August running challenge we want to help motivate you to get out of bed and go run. Our challenge motto is “Wake up and get Moo-vin”.
How will it work?
Its simple, for all your runs before midday, you will be awarded points. The earlier you run, the more points you get. You can only earn points ONCE a day and we will take your earliest run of the day. Remember only A.M runs count. The minimum you must run for your kms to count is 4km. This must be in a single run.
Unfortunately for this challenge, we are not going to count treadmill runs as we really cannot prove when you ran without the watch/GPS data. Sorry!
Anything after midday doesn’t give you points 🙂
So why the cow?
We’re glad you asked…
A.M also stands for Angus Marney. Angus is the recipient of our fundraising efforts this month. Angus is anaphylactic to dairy, eggs and peanuts and in an unusual twist, Angus actually lives on a dairy farm. He cannot touch his Dad after he has been working or he will react. Angus has the opportunity to undergo treatment for his allergy but it is expensive so we’re going to try to help.
