#FitReaders 2016 Update

by | Jan 9, 2016

Happy Saturday!

#FitReaders is my first challenge for 2016 and I’m proud to say that I’m getting closer to my goal, which is to complete a 5K this month and every month after for the entire year.  It’s exciting to watch the miles increase as well as my fitness level.  Today, I walked 2.95 miles on my treadmill.  What’s your fitness goals for 2016?

Welcome to #FitReaders hosted by Geeky Bloggers Book Blog  and That’s What I’m Talking About.

What is a Virtual 5k? This Virtual 5k is organized online and FitReaders from all over the world can compete. Where it is different from a traditional 5K is that you are responsible for completing the walk/run at any place you desire, at any time during the race timeframe that works for you. For this series, each race will need to be completed between the first and last day of the month. You will need to take a picture at the end of the race (not of your face if you don’t want but your time, song list, ect) and post it either on FB, Twitter, or your check-in. You will check in every month at the finish line page each month so that we can track who did how many (Check the down below for the link) . Each month there will be a virtual ribbon that you can display proudly on your check-ins. If at the end of the year you have completed 10 of the 12 races–you will get a medal.
