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 runfortheblingofit@gmail.com and let me know you want in on the challenge. Include your name and a link to your blog.
• Follow the blog at www.runfortheblingofit.blogspot.com
• 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!!!!

This is a GRAND idea and I absolutely love it; I'm following the blog and I will send an email shortly. I certainly know that I run for bling!

Great idea. I had already the goal of a monthly race. Now I "run for bling" too.
Happy Christmas to you and family from Italy.
