500 Miles Club and Bloggie Give Away

Pay It Forward 500+ Mile Club

During my blog stalking, I came across the Pay It Forward 500+ Mile Club. Robin at the turtle has come up with a way to kill two birds with one stone. The basic idea is to raise 10¢ for each mile you run/walk for the charity of your choice.The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Great Strides is my charity of choice. I love this idea. I was planning to run the miles anyway may as well put a dime in my jar. 

But I did the math and 500mi breaks down to less than 10mi a week. (I realize for many people this is a lot and I'm not busting on anyone) If you know me, you know I like to set tough goals. So I decided to make it 17mi/week. That way I my charity gets more money and I have to keep up my long runs past race season. 

IFitness Race Belt Give Away
Also during my blog stalking, I  found another give away y'all might be interested in. Tricia at enduranceisntonlyphysical is giving away an IFitness running belt. I've been meaning to buy one of these to put my phone in. I hate being out of touch for 2+hrs on my long runs. Running shorts pockets are barely big enough for feul much less a phone too. Pls stop by her blog and enter the give away.

Hey there, thanks for stopping by my blog. I see we are fellow 500 mile clubbers! I'm so glad to hear you love your Bob. It's so much money, so it's great to hear people that own and love it.

Thanks for the comment! It's nice to hear it's possible to find a great man :)

I'm running the Surf City Half in California on Feb 7. Although I'm afraid due to injury status it's going to be more walk/run than run. There's one here in IL on May 1 I think I'll shoot for actually running!

Love this 500 mile club idea! And hope you have a good Mardi Gras too! Oh and I have an ifitness belt...it's awesome!

I don't think Baja Bob's has an artificial taste at all. I think the alcohol takes the edge off that honestly. I bought a bottle for two people here at work and they liked it as well.

Stumbled across your blog and realized that you are doing the pay it forward challenge too :) I decorated my jar, I just have yet to put pictures up.
