I am a Jogger Mom. I get some of my running in by pushing a 25 lb stroller containing a 17 lb bundle of energy for miles. The longest mileage we have put on our Bob Revolution is a 10 mile run while Chris and I were training for the Go! St. Louis Half Marathon. So when Joggermom reached out to me and asked if I wanted to participate in their virtual marathon I said heck yes! The premise is to run 26.2 miles in 31 days. Easy right?
Although it is a virtual “race” it is not about who finishes the miles first or runs them the fastest … it is about carving out time to get them in even though all of our lives are busy and full of organized (or not so organized) chaos. On top of the sense of accomplishment of achieving a goal there are some pretty awesome prizes up for grabs including a B.O.B. Revolution SE Single Stroller like mine! Even better? 10% of your registration fee is being donated to the American Heart Association. Right up my alley! I posted about my passion for educating women about heart disease back in February 🙂
Although the race officially started May 1, there is still time to register! Registration is open until midnight on May 15. Registration is only $15 to join in on the fun. You can register HERE.
BUT WAIT! The awesome people at Joggermom want to give one lucky Food, Fitness, and Family reader free admission to the race. Check out the details:
