I know BlogHer is still just over a month away, and many aren't ready to think about the end yet, but the end of this particular challenge is drawing near. And while I've set many goals I want to reach by BlogHer, I just added one more and I hope many of you will join in with me.
Phat Mommy has organized a 5K Fun Run on Friday morning at BlogHer. OK, I'll admit the words "fun" and "run" really don't belong together, but aside from that, I think it's a great idea. So many women have been working on getting fit through walking and/or running, and this is the perfect chance to walk or run alongside the group of women who have been part of your support network for the past few months.
I've already signed up, and I'm challenging all of you to do so as well. It's $5 - that's all. If you can afford BlogHer, you can afford the $5 for the run. A t-shirt is included for that fee, and there's a chance more sponsors will add to the swag. And yeah, you'll have to get up early that morning. But you'll have time to shower afterward and make it back down to registration and breakfast.
Also, just because it's called a run doesn't mean you have to run. There are several women who plan to walk the entire distance, so know you won't be alone if you choose to walk.
To enter, visit Phat Mommy's blog for all the details. And leave a comment here to let me know if you're participating. I'm hoping to see several ladies I recognize beside me at the starting line. And we can all celebrate that no matter what our time is when we finish, we know it's better than it would have been had we tried a 5K in early March.
