B-Fit B-Day Challenge

Extremely mild dilemma. I really want to do the B-Fit B-Day Challenge. First, what it is. Then, why this is a problem.

... What is it? (information stolen directly from the website)

The raceAthlete B-Fit B-Day Challenge is a celebration of your life, health, and fitness on your birthday (which is next week (yay! (!))).

In order to complete this challenge, you must...

Take your age and in any order:
1) Swim the number of miles in the first number
2) Run the number of miles in the second number
and 3) Bike the number of miles in the combined number.

In order to earn the following, you must...
Bronze: Do all three (swim/bike/run) during the week of your Birthday.
Silver: Do all three (swim/bike/run) in the three days before, after, or on your B-Day.
Gold: Do all three (swim/bike/run) in 24-hours to celebrate your B-Day!

The "Gold" option is impossible for me at the moment. Or at least near impossible. This means I would probably try for the Silver.

In a nutshell, I would need to:
Swim 2 Miles
Run 3 Miles
and Bike 23 Miles
(all in 3 days)

... So what's the problem?

Well, The Boy will be in town for an entire week over my birthday. He arrives 2 days before my birthday and leaves 5 days after. I will not have the time, nor the drive to complete this while he's here.

So I'm wondering if I should still do it. Maybe just do it the 3 days before he arrives? That would still put it within a week of my birthday.



So the two questions are...

1) Should I do it?

2) If I do it in 3 days (even though it's not exactly ON my birthday), will it still count as Silver? Or will I have to knock it down to Bronze?

Thoughts from the peanut gallery are appreciated. Just click 'Comments' right below this.
