I want to be a runner and not just a groupy. A runner is someone in my mind who will run rain/snow or shine, cold or warm, morning noon or night, and unless has to does not take 3 weeks off from the thing they enjoy doing.
So with that being said I have joined a few "support groups" ok really they are beginning of the year challenges that I am hoping will keep me on the right track while the snow of January falls around us. (Does it snow in London?)
The first one is The Chilly Challenge 2013:
Running Escapades and Janine from The Purple Giraffe. The Chilly Challenge starts January 1st. All you do is log your miles
from walking, running or the elliptical for the month. Fantastic prizes
are up for grabs too! You must pick a team – Team Escapades or Team
Giraffe. I chose team Giraffe based on reading there blogs and pictures that where on there blogs. Ok honestly I chose team Giraffe because she wore an elf costume with sequence on it to a race how awesome is that! I am hoping that being part of a team will help me stay motivated, because bragging rights among friends is kind of everything.
The second on is 5 by the 5th Virtual Run Series:
Laura at mommyrunfast.com. The rules are easy simply to run a 5K or 5 miler by the 5th of the month. There’s an
option to run once or every month for a chance at winning great prizes. It starts January 1 and runs through June, hence the once or once a month (I should really include all information).
Last thing I did this morning was look more into the Athens half marathon. It is 13 weeks away and will require a little catch up for my body. These 2 things above I hope will help me do that. Feel free to register I believe both events will be a blast and healthy at the same time!
Have a great weekend every one!
