The 100 days club
100 days club was invented in 2006. At the time C had a 2-yearold girl and a baby, while G had both a 1-year old girl + a baby girl. By then there were four of us, but after they left us (or we them?) we did three other 100 days clubs together, and kept on improving the concept.
In March 2009, after C had another baby, we did our important fifth 100 days club, and also created this blog.
We had lots of fun, lost weight, got in shape, had company by C2 for a while – and then ran a 10 k race together.
In October 2009, it was obvious that we had different life situations and ambitions. G left the club and kept on going for Vasaloppet (30k x-country skiing) and Paris Marathon!
Then did our best again in 2010 and 2011, yes, you can read about it, and now, as G has moved from Stockholm to Lausanne, we are ready to do our finale version of the 100 days club concept. More than six years later!
