Starting the New Year off Right!

I know that Sherry and I will be starting the New Year off right with our first race of the challenge, the New Year's Day Half Marathon!!!  Are any of you starting the year off with a New Year's Day race???  Let's hear about it!  (And I'm looking forward to our first update of race reports from challenge participants!)

Also, don't forget to spread the word about the challenge.  It's all about getting people fit and active, and I personally love that this challenge can be suited to your goals... whether it be 12 5ks or 12 marathons or a challenging mix!

Good luck on your 2011 Challenge!

We all need a little motivation from time to time with our running right?! I use races as a motivator for me to get out and do my training. I am always on the hunt for my next bit of race bling! So, why not participate in this little challenge. Over the next 12 months, complete 12 races! This can be anything from a 5k to an ultra – or any combination of races. Ideally you would do one race a month, but there are no restrictions.

How to be involved:
• Send an email to and let me know you want in on the challenge. Include your name and a link to your blog.
• Follow the blog at
• Post a race report after each race so that we can link it here on the blog, including a pic of your bling if you receive any. (If not a medal maybe a pic of the race shirt or anything else they give in your race swag.)
• Tell everyone else about the challenge!

Each week there will be an update with links to everyone that did a race and has posted their report. At the end of the year we will do a drawing from everyone that completed the challenge and give away a fun running prize!

Come on and lets Run for the Bling of it!!!!
