Forward As One
Welcome to forwardasone!
This community was created after a conversation between alfirin_kirinki and elendar, who wanted to share their efforts to get fit, keep up with each other's progress and add a little competition to the process. Living in different countries (England and Denmark) this would have proved difficult if it had not been for the wonders of LiveJournal.
So Forward As One, borrowed from the British Infantry motto, came to being.
Our targets are, at present:
to increase our fitness to a level which will enable us each to run 1.5 miles in fifteen minutes or less, by Christmas 2006 (or a similar target of the individual's devising);
to provide a friendly, informal and mildly competitive community in which we can share our trials and tribulations and motivate each other - and share each other's success;
to have fun.
If you would like to join, comment below with your targets and request membership to the community. You can then be included on statistical tables we will draw up each week from 1st July, to record progress. Once you are approved, make an introduction post, telling us a bit about yourself - your name or nickname, age, location, what you'd like to achieve and what your expectations are. Who knows - some of us may live close enough together that we can meet up to exercise!
