The truth is that noone really keeps track of there miles it is all estimate. Mr. Newton just asks everyone to turn in a sheet that says how many miles at the end of the summer and everyone looks over the workouts and tabulates them. For the most part though everyone in the top 9 are over a 1000 and trust me they are not easy miles at all. Everyone works hard because they know the consequences of coming home with a second place trophy. If you dont bring home 1st it is a disappointment.
