I don’t want to give too many details at this point as I want to get things further along, but I am working in the planning stages of a mega, ultimate mileage run of sorts this year and I need your help!

Planning An Ultimate Mileage Run – I Need Your Help!

I want to make this as interactive and fun of a trip as possible so I am trying to include readers in the planning phase. If you would, I would love for you to comment with any/all of the following information:

  • Where you are located – example, Chicago, IL
  • What city/destination you would enjoy hearing/seeing about in blitz fashion – example, Africa or more specific like Sydney, Australia
  • Do you run?
  • Would you be interested in using miles/points to take part in various stages of this endeavor (not holding anyone to it just want to gauge interest!)

I realize I am being quite vague at this point but I don’t want to spill all the beans of this before I have put some things together. Finding out what your preferences are for some of these things would help me to try and include some/many of you in the fun.

I will give you a hint – my primary purposes in starting this blog were to write about how to maximize miles and points and helping runners travel more through that means. Everything else here is related to those two things in some way. This mileage run would certainly include both miles and points and running – and a lot of documenting it/photographing it along the way! 🙂
