I’m a believer that things come into your life for a reason and I received proof of that yesterday.
I’ve been day dreaming about running again. It’s been about 2 months since I’ve laced up and felt the wind on my face and I’ve been a little depressed about that. To me, there is nothing like the quality time I spend alone, with the sunshine and the fresh air, while pushing myself to new limits.
Last year I ran all winter and I loved it. I actually did better when it was cold out, but this year, the Polar Vortex temps have made it to dangerous (in my opinion) to go out and enjoy myself.
Yesterday, while checking Instagram, I saw that FitFluential posted a new challenge for March and the focus was running!
I instantly got excited about this, since I’ve been daydreaming about hitting the pavement again. I tagged a few runner friends I’ve met on Instagram and they all responded yes to the challenge, so I’m really stoked to have not only a goal, but a support and motivation team too!
The challenge is to walk, run or hike 100 miles in the month of March. I know that sounds like a lot of mileage, but it breaks down to 3.2 miles a day. They even made a training calendar that changes up the mileage and makes it super easy to know what you need to do each day! CLICK HERE FOR THE CALENDAR
If you would like to participate, use #FFMarchMiles when posting to Instagram or Twitter, because FitFluential has teamed up with Reebok for this challenge and two lucky participants will win some amazing Reebok gear!
Now grab your running shoes, find a sidewalk, trail or treadmill and get moving!
