Why wait until January to kick off a YEAR of running with friends near and far! Im honored and pleased to announce I am now an AMBASSADOR for Running on the Wall. One of the things I love about running is actually running races with new friends near and far. Often due to our running budgets and/or travel limitations it could take years before I have the opportunity to meet and run with every running friend I make on social media. That’s why starting THIS MONTH and every month in 2016 you will see an invitation from me to join me in a virtual 5k or 10k. Even if you are a first time runner doing C25k or training for a marathon or ultra, these races should fit somewhere in your training schedule. WHO’s EXCITED?!!! ME!!
Never participated in a virtual run? No worries, I’ll help guide you on how to join in the fun. For now, I want to tell you about THIS MONTHS race and how you can get involved because we are already almost 5 days into December so I want you to get signed up and earn one more medal in 2015! Let’s Do this!
About Running on the Wall. This onine business and resource for runners was created by two runners, a husband and wife team who felt that they themselves could give the highest quality gear for runners anything related to running. Their first product for sale was a medal holder and since they have created lots of other running-inspired items and sell everything from medal holders to race bib display to running bracelet and virtual race to running tees.
Out of their love for the outdoors, they strive to keep everything offered in store as ‘green’ as possible, making sure that all of the marathon display and medals holders are made from recycled MDF wood and non-chemical based varnishes. Shows their commitment to keep our environment looking as best as possible to ensure we all have many more great outdoor running years ahead.
THE RACE: DECEMBER 2015
For December I have chosen the #shebelievedshecoulddoit virtual 10k race. If you can believe this incredibly affordable deal, for just $29 you receive: Tshirt, Bib and Medal! The great thing about running a virtual race is YOU CAN FIT THIS RACE IN on your OWN TIME! So often I have to pass up on races because I am working on the day of the event. Plus, this is super affordable, sometimes even costing less than running your local races so more money saved in your pocket! You are free to select what race you want to run off their website and guess what….you can SAVE 10% on your order with the CODE: GiveThanks. What race theme and distance is attractive to you?
My race Packet looks like this!
The FEATURED 10k for this month is #runwithgrace and it is also a 10k, here is what that packet looks like…remember you can select YOUR OWN race to run!
Two ways to get connected with other runners who are participating in virtual races: 1) use the hashtag #virtualrunning and tag Running on the Wall on Instagram, like and share on their facebook page and tag ME on social media: jenn on twitter, jenn on instagram, jenn on facebook. 2) Tag or INVITE a friend to join in with you, share on a running group page or call/text a friend about it too.
Since we are all ordering our packets this week, I’m planning to run my 10K the weekend between Christmas and New Years. Who is with me?

Calling all runners! If you haven’t participated in a run streak before, now is the time to jump on board! Im excited to join Runners World movement to do a Run Streak from Thanksgiving to New Years. All you have to do is lace up and run 1 mile or more daily and check in—there will be thousands participating and what better motivation than knowing that you have a few hundred friends stepping up with you.
If you want to hook up with me and get daily motivation, coaching for running, hear tips from some experienced runners and basically connect with others who love running as much as you—–check out my event page on my facebook fitness page & Click this Image to join my Holiday #RWStreak Running Group!
Still unshore if you should participate? Here are a few questions to ask yourself before you decide. Of course, I will say this is for everyone and anyone of all levels, from beginner to athlete.
1. Do you own a pair of running shoes? 2. Power walk, Jog or Run can you cover the distance of a mille? 3. Do you enjoy being active? 3. Do you feel motivated when challenged? 5. Do you plan to eat cookies, fudge or other sweets during the holidays? 6. Do you feel less stressed after exercising? 7. Have you been wanting to begin a C25k program? 8. Training for a spring race? 9. Do you struggle with getting your workouts in during the week? 10. Every mile you run, you can justify that holiday cocktail you will enjoy at dinner that night.
If you answered YES to more than 1/2 of these questions, then sign up immediately. If you answered yes to only a couple, I’d still sign up and just do your best.
Great! Then I’ll see you all bright eyed and laced up for the 2015 edition of #rwrunstreak starting on Thursday, 11/26! Feel free to provide your own “rum” if you take your running outdoors, lol!
