Store News
Stash Dash begins on Thursday, May 25th (?). Link to last years rules thread to help clarify.
Glenda: Last year I completed 10,733m. I want to beat that at least, but I’m not sure I’ll make it to 15,000. Although I definitely have enough stash to do that…
Bernadette: Made it to 8607 m last year. Hoping to do at least 10k, but I want to be smarter and not hurt myself this time. Must finish at least one crocheted blanket
Caitlin will be competing along with us :)
