The Isles Mile Challenge – 2012 Tour

We just returned from our winter meetings in Phoenix. Our new DVD called Body Protection will be ready for release in April. We have added two new Consultants in 2012, Dr. Greg Kotlarczyk will be our Chiropractic Consultant and Leah Macy will be our Massage Consultant – both based at our choice of a recovery center – Wellness Concepts. And you can now find us on FaceBook at Body Protection.

The Isles Mile Challenge combines the themes from our past four tours: speed/strength/endurance (2008), recovery (2009), international travel (2010), and adventure racing (2011). The Challenge is to race 7 one-mile races (each under 5 minutes), on 7 different islands, in 7 different time zones, over 7 weeks. It will begin on July 1st in Greece. If I do not break 5 minutes in a race, I must find another island in that time zone and beat 5 minutes before I can continue on. Here is the race, travel schedule, and time zones:

  1. Santorini, Greece (GMT+2)
  2. Copenhagen, Denmark (GMT+1)
  3. Reykjavik, Iceland (GMT)
  4. Mount Desert Island, Maine, USA (GMT-5)
  5. Hamilton, Bermuda (GMT-4)
  6. Whidbey Island, Washington, USA (GMT+8)
  7. Honolulu, Hawaii USA (GMT-10)

The 5th event at, The Isles Mile Challenge should be a great mental and physical test this summer.
