2021, 21 challenges...

Update October 27th 2021 (day 300) – A new year is a new page… and the year 2021 will probably be as bizarre and unpleasant as 2020… well anyway a large part of it, and if not worse…

So, just to keep morale up, while staying at home… you need projects…

And since we’re here, running projects, right?

So here are my 21 ideas for running (or sporting) challenges for 2021…

… which happens to be the year of my 50th birthday as well… 

So there will be 21s, and 50s on the list…

Listed here without any order of preference, feasibility, genre, or other… just randomly listed… And we’ll see what happens…and if the health keep being good, and circumstances not too… hazardous…

List and status on June 30th :
