As a way to say thanks to all of you who participated in the Run For Boston #Anywhere5K we’d like to present you with this virtual trophy. Enjoy it. You earned it!
The Run For Boston #Anywhere5K is Tuesday, April 23 to Tuesday, April 30. Yep, one whole week to show your support for those impacted by the Boston Marathon tragedy.
In addition to running the free virtual race, we have a couple of other ways you can get involved. You can purchase a Run For Boston #Anywhere5K shirt, and you can add a “Run For Boston” Twibbon to your Facebook or Twitter avatar.
Whether you’re a couch-to-5Ker, a cyclist, a swimmer, an ultrarunner, or just an all around athlete you need energy. Most likely you’ll want your energy tasty and made with natural ingredients. If that’s the case, you need to take a look at Honey Stinger, a Colorado-based company that works wonders with bee’s gold.
To get your hands on some Honey Stinger energy foods you can A) hit up your local running store; B) order online; or C) participate in our #Anywhere5K Team Challenge on February 23 & 24 for chance at one of two variety boxes of chews or waffles. SaaaaWEET!
The headphone debate is nothing new. Those opposed to using headphones think you need to be aware of your surroundings, those for the use of headphones think there’s a middle ground between safety and music as a positive influence.
When I first started running I didn’t wear headphones. Instead, I listened to my lungs breathe and my feet hit the ground. Months later, as I became more comfortable with my body, I donned the headphones with one rule: I must always be able to hear my body and my surroundings.
Dogs are awesome. I have two rescued canines; a Lab and an Akita. Both are up in years, and both love to get out and run around. In the upcoming Run Fur Fun #Anywhere5K, I’ll be running with Bella, the Akita. But I’m not doing so without knowing her limitations and having run with her in the past.
If you’re looking to run with your dog in our upcoming race, or you’re hoping your dog will be your next training partner, I suggest you do a little prep work before hitting the road.
