  45. 1)Yes! 2) No.3) I am planning on it but may have to adjust the day or time I start… Just found out our church is meeting outside the next 2 Saturdays at 6pm. I plan on doing 5kMayhem but am considering starting at 4:30am or just doing it on Sunday instead.

    2. Yes I love the podcasts and will be so sad when I don’t have your awesome interpretations of the scripture to listen to any more
    3. Hopefully!! I’ve been battling a slight foot problem so I’m hoping it heals up by then!

  47. Still working this challenge daily!! Some days are by running, others by walking, sometimes a combination of the two! Wondering how i will do 12 of them on the 30th, but still planning on giving it my best effort!!!!

  48. Yes, I have kept up with the walking and the chapters. I am doing an abbreviated version of Mayhem. I am doing Mayhem for Kenya by walking 21 miles to raise money to provide food for Kenyan people that don’t have money to buy food.
    I’m halfway to the finish line for May!!!

    2. No, but I’ve read through Ecclesiastes and going through The Gospel of John in Song I’m reading the @YouVersion plan ‘The Book Of John In Song’. Check it out here:
    3. No. No time. LOL

  54. Day 15 in the books. I am still running at least a 5k every day. So happy for the nice weather this morning. I am reading three chapters a day and listening to your podcast. I am going to come to the mayhem to run several loops not possible to do the entire 37 miles but do want to be part of the group.

  55. Happy Friday! Checking in Day #2!! Wooooot! Still in the challenge, haven’t kept up with the bible study. Will try for the mayhem!

  56. Jodi checking in here for myself and Taylor, Abigail, Piper, and Elijah. We have all been doing at least a 5k everyday this month. And we have been listening to the podcasts or reading the chapters. I don’t think everyone is up-to-date on that part, but some of us are. As for the Mayhem, I am going to see how far I can get that day. Not sure if any of the kids will join me yet or not.

  57. I have been doing a 5k everyday.
    I have been listening to three chapters while I run.
    And yes, I’m going to see how many laps I can do in Mayhem! Preparing throughout the month!

  58. 1. Yes!!!

    3. I was considering but found out scmy nephew’s school is having their “drive by” graduation parade on the 30th 👨‍🎓🚗

  59. I’m still in it!! We’ve had some COLD days, some snowy still coming down. So I’ve done some days inside. But this is amazing! I’ve grown so much each day I can go faster. It’s a big surprise. It’s exhilarating and refreshing. Sadly, I haven’t been able to keep up with the bible study, it was my intent to do so. I will attempt Mayhem!! Wooo!

  60. 1 Yes
    2. Yes
    3. Sadly No

  61. Yes! Yes mostly and loving the podcast. No way to Mayhem but will do something extra challenging. Thanks for this!

  62. I Love this challenge! Making up some days after being sick, however this challenge has given me a run for my money/ lol. For me its about commitment and I love listening to the podcasts.

  63. Yep.
    Yep. Great job w the podcast. I feel like having you as a running buddy once a week, and w you reading and breaking down the Word, I basically have my own personalized 5k May coach.
    50/50 on Mayhem

  64. At least 5K a day everyday. I’ve read the scriptures every day. And I plan to do the mayhem. 😬. I love this challenge. It’s one of my favorites. What a great way, physically and spiritually, to enter a new season.

    2) YES (reading 3 or more chapters a day using the ReadScripture App read thru Bible in a year plan)
    3) NO – maybe a 10K, or 10 miles, but definitely not 37 miles 🤪
    Thanks Jeff! Fun to do this together.

  75. 1. Yes!! I have walked/jogged/ran 3.1 every day! (oh do my muscles feel it too)
    2. Yes, however I am 2 days behind on reading (plan to catch up this weekend) but I have listened to the podcast everyday.
    3. No, I don’t think I could physically complete it, however I will attempt to do at least 3.1 times 2 as an effort to push myself.

  76. Yes, slogging but getting faster in this crazy May weather.
    Yes, love how Jeff reads the passage and teaches us about the scripture readings. Enjoy the inspiring encouragement by Jeff and guests.
    Yes, signed up without reading what Jeff meant by a 5k Mayhem lol, I had a different expectation in my mind (not 37 miles for sure lol). Will push for at least a half marathon and will do what I can toward the full mayhem, Jeff’s version, in 12 hours. But I really need 24 hours.
    Bonus, made donation to JPM to say Thank You for inspiring us to move everyday with the word of God.

    • Thank you so much! I’m glad to hear that you are going to push yourself on May 30. Good for you!

  77. 1: Yes 2:No (committed to a personal reading discipline for the year) 3: See how the legs feel by then

  78. #1 Yes and then some!
    #2 No, not doing so well
    #3 If I can still walk, I will try!
    Thank you for my motivation, when I feel like taking a day off, I CAN’T!

  79. Checking in on day 15!!!
    I’ve met my 2 week goal I set for myself and managed to jog 3 days in a row the whole 5k. It was tough but I made it. On day 14 though, my ankle was swollen pretty bad and I didn’t know if I could complete yesterday. But, i wrapped my ankle and with Gods will, I made day 14 happen even though the pain was excruciating. So far, I’ve made it through the first 14 days and am going to get today done even if I have to go to Walmart and do a few laps because unfortunately, Oklahomas weather has decided to produce downpours and severe storms today.
    I want to tell everyone to keep going! Dont give up. With each others support and most importantly, God’s support, we can complete this challenge.
    I havent done much reading but I have pulled out my collection of Christian Contemporary Music and Christian Rock and been listening to those while walking or jogging. And as for other running challenges? I just want to get through this one first.

    Keep on keeping on everyone! We can do this!!!

  80. I need a little secret signal or sticker reflector or something – so many local runners, as I’m headed through Wooster I’d love to know who else is out on their 5k/day run! And I don’t think I would yell out, ‘Hey, are you doing 5k a day in May??” Or maybe I will! 🙂

  81. 1) YES 😁😁😁 and learning to love every bit of it. I started out walking and now I’m jogging some. Maybe by the end of the month I will be able to jog all of it 😁

    2) YES: doing my daily reading through the Bible app

    3) don’t think so….

  82. 1. Yes! I’ve mostly walked, but also ran a few! 2. I’ve tried to listen while I am doing my 5k. I usually end up listening to extra chapters, but I like hearing it repeated the next time. It helps me to think about what is being said. 3. Nope! Everyday is enough for me 🙂

  83. Main Challenge: Yes, I have run or walked at least 3.1 miles every day so far in May 2020.

    Bonus #1: No, I have not read them, but I have listened to you read them each day Jeff! Thank you for that – and you voices for religious leaders, etc., are great!

    Bonus Challenge #2: It is highly unlikely I will do the #5k Mayhem on the 30th, but we shall see!

  84. I’ve enjoyed my walks every day seeing Gods beautiful world and reading His word. Thank you. I will be going back to work June 1 so I’m great full to have this chance to do these 3 mile walks every day. Thank you.

  85. Norman Lambright / Fredericksburg, Ohio
    1. yes, I have done my 5 k every day. I’ve got hurting legs and feet but I’ve been able to pull through every day. had to do some days of walking/running to get through. It’s been fun, no pain no gain,haha.

  88. Yes, I have ran at least a 5k everyday (most days are longer runs)

    • Great question! I would be sure to get plenty of water for the whole week leading up to #5kMayhem (and obviously throughout that day). I would try to get a little breakfast in before the first loop, snack on Clif bars or granola bars between loops, and be thinking of fruits, nuts, and if possible, grilled cheese sandwiches. Nothing too big or heavy. Plan to eat a celebratory meal afterwards!

  107. Yes! I’ve completed 3.1 miles every day so far this month! Some days have been a bit challenging, but I did it!
    Yes, I’ve done my reading! I love this part. AND I love how those two parts enhance each other. I think about the chapters while I walk and I am more connected to God and His word as I am out in His world.
    Jury is still out on the mayhem….

  108. 1) Yes, I’ve done this daily. Today was a mile time trial and a 2.1 mile walk. 🙂
    2) Momma doesn’t get any bonus points today.
    3) I am gonna try.

  109. 1 – Yes
    2 – No, I’m already on a read through the Bible in a year reading plan.
    3 – I’m going to give it a shot, crazy, but it kinda sounds fun!

  110. 1. Yes
    2. No not all
    3. No my husband would kill me. These virtual race sign ups are making him crazy.

  111. Yes!Im loving the 5k a day. today the weather was a little stormy but I couldn’t miss my 5k a day! I am also enjoying bonus challenge #1 and I’m hoping to continue reading next month 3 chapters of scripture a day.

  112. Loving the Challenge! Doing the 5k-a-day and mostly keeping up with the readings. As to Mayhem….love the concept, gonna cheer y’all from the sidelines!!

  113. 1- Yes, never ran 2 days in a row before, running everyday is hard. 🙂 on the plus side my kids have started to run with me a few times a week, I love it!
    2- almost, am a few days behind but plan to catch up this weekend
    3- No

  114. Yes, at least one 5K a day and sometimes 3 to keep my friends on track! Yes, & Yes (im excited about the Mayhem, it will be a challenge as a walker!

  115. So far so good..
    Not every one.
    Debatable. Initially planned to but the heat here may be dreadful by then.

  116. Happy Friday!
    1. Yes, 5k so far.
    2. No, but I’m trying to catch up.
    3. No way…. 🙂

  117. No, chose my family over my run yesterday. I know I’m out of the running now. Good luck to all! Keep it up!

  118. 1) No, missed a couple days due to a car accident but I am very slowly making up those miles.
    2) No, but I am again making up missed readings
    3) No

  119. 1. Yes! Running 3.1 everyday sore legs an all. Love the challenge of it, and I’m learning a lot about myself.
    2. Yes!
    3. Are you kidding?! No, wish I was but pretty sure I’m not up for it.
    Halfway there team! All down hill from here

  120. 1. Yes!
    2. No
    3. Not the full mayhem but I will run a few miles, multiple times that day.

  121. 1. Yes
    2. Almost, I’m catching up.
    3. Undecided

    This challenge has been great motivation for me to run/walk everyday!

  122. 1. Yes! Almost midway thru and starting to feel it in my legs. But I’ve done it before, so each day I’m trusting what I KNOW can be done over what I FEEL able to do that morning. I would like a little less wind to fight thru though….
    2. Started strong, but am also doing a chronological Bible study plan so have missed a few days of this one. Officially a no but continuing to listen/read.
    3. Hard to say with the 2 little “extras” we have with us still. They’re high maintenance and I have no idea what I’d do with them that day. Might try to do an extra 5k or so just to push myself a bit. Going for a loooooong days walk (I would not be able to run that much that’s for sure!) really appeals to me though!!

  123. Yes I am still running!!!
    No I haven’t been reading the Bible plan, but have my own through the Bible plan that I have been doing.
    No way I can fathom running a 5K every hour for 12 hours.

  124. Yes I am still doing a 5K everyday.
    Giving it a shot when time permits
    No I don’t feel I a, physically capable to run for 12 hours

  125. 1) yes 2) no 3) no. It’s been going great. Feels like it’s getting easier but also not as much fun as it was to begin with. Feeling like I’m past the “honeymoon” stage.

  126. Yes!!! Greyson and I are on target!!!!
    But I’m behind on scripture and hope to dble up this weekend to catch up!!!
    And NO mayhem for us!!! 🙂

  127. 1. Yes 2. No (I need to get caught up) 3. No- I am way to slow and would be going non stop for 3 days

  128. Love the 5K everyday challenge and yes I will attempt the challenge to run every hour on the half hour on May 30, we will see how far I get.

  129. 1. Yes
    2. Yes. I’m not gonna lie it has been a struggle to read daily but I have played catch up and i am thankful for this journey. It has pushed me to read more of my bible.
    3. I will not be able to do the challenge but I am planning to run 5k that morning then another one that evening. I honestly don’t think my body can handle it. I’m not a regular workout/active person. So I will be taking baby steps and cheering you on from GA.

  130. Jeff: Terri Lemke: Challenge 1: 5/1-5/15 – 279.80 miles, have not missed a day.

    1. Yes.
    2. No. I am doing a different reading plan with my church right now.
    3. Nope. I would literally be walking non stop for the entire day.

  135. Hey we’re halfway done! 1) yes, 2) unfortunately no) and 3) no… keep up the great work!!!

  136. 1. Yes! More walking than jogging… Haven’t run a full 5k yet (during this challenge), but *might* be able to by the end of the month. 🙂
    2. I have not been (on those). I do need to check out the podcast, I’ve been hearing good things about it!
    3. Nope! At my pace I would basically be walking/jogging for 12 hours with little breaks, and I’ll be 34 weeks pregnant at the time, so doesnt sound like a good idea for me lol. I do plan to do something extra, but thinking more like two or three 5k distances spread throughout the day 🙂

  137. 1. Yes. It’s been a great mental workout as well. Forcing myself to hit the trail everyday.
    2. No, I haven’t been keeping up.
    3. No, it still takes me over an hour to get my walk in. 😂

  138. 1 yes and not getting any easier
    2 on track
    3 still thinking not looking good still sucking for air after 3.1

  139. 1. YES!
    2. Yes but I need to catch up😬
    3. It seems a little too crazy for me. Thinking of tweaking the challenge to fit me personally a little bit!

  142. Yes, I have been running my miles and keeping up with the scripture readings. I plan to attempt the challenge on May 30th! This challenge is so fun!

  143. I have completed the 3.1 miles each day! I have done a combination of walking & walk/run intervals. I am excited that I have completed these miles during the week after work each day! It has been a much needed stress relief!

    I have listened to a couple of the podcasts but have not been reading.

    I am not planning on trying the May mayhem challenge. I have other plans that day but probably wouldn’t do it anyways.

  144. I am still running 5k a day! Thanks for the challenge. Not sure I’ll do the Mayhem Challenge yet.

  145. 1) YES 2.) some (gotta get better at this!) 3.) yes, planning on it!
    Finishing today’s 5k in the rain after a killer workout!! My first 1.64 miles were running!

  146. I’ve been running/walking 3.1 miles a day as the challenge states and I have also been doing the 3 chapter a day. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the gospels. (my third time through in 4 months 🙂 I do not plan to do the second bonus challenge, mainly because I am not a marathon runner. Good luck to anyone who plans to do the second bonus challenge!
    Simply put: yes, yes, no.

  147. Yes, have ran/walked a 5k every day so far. Have been about 50/50 with reading the specific Bible chapters each day and no I do not plan to do the special May 30 challenge. Love and best wishes to all! Keep pushing!!! 💜💜💜

  148. 1) Yes – I have stuck with at least 3.1 miles every day!
    2) A little behind on the podcasts and readings
    3) I haven’t officially decided – probably some type of “version” of the challenge. Maybe try and run 3-4 5kid’s throughout the day. I have gotten horrible shin splints so it’s been hard trying to push through without hurting myself further!

  149. 1.) YES!!
    2.) will be at yes at bedtime tonight

  156. This has been amazing so far. I was not sure if I could do it, but I have been on the elliptical every single day. I’ve actually done several 10K, a 15K, one 10-miler, and hit 11 miles today. My goal is to do a half-marathon on my birthday (May 27).

    I need to read more scriptures.

    I am not sure about the insane day – but I might give it my best shot!

  157. Yes, Yes, No. We have been dedicating each day to a “Fallen Saint”. People have been dending us names of Christian Loved Ones that have went to heaven for us to run for. Thanks for sponsoring the challenge.

That was the first time I had done that in years! Maybe I can get back up to my half marathon status! Thanks!
