Lucky #1 (who says random.org never picks #1) is Heather who blogs at Just a Colorado Gal. Congratulations Heather! She's actually a new follower of mine and I'm already enjoying reading her blog as well. If you haven't read her posts this week you are missing out on helping her pick a marathon. Prepare yourself for the shock of reading about the crazy, rude woman in spin class. Who talks on their phone DURING spin class?! Shoot me an email Heather so I can get your mailing address! Enjoy your yummy Larabars!!!
Now onto some exciting news out there in the blogosphere. For those of you like me who look at the winter months filled with Halloween candy, Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas goodies, and New Year's Party snacks as a challenge to lose weight rather than gain it then listen up! There are some challenges out there that will help you do just that!
The lovely Amanda at RunToTheFinish is doing the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge again this year (fourth year in a row) and I'm signed up to participate. Check out her post for the details on levels (builders, doers, advanced), ways to earn points and prizes, and how you can sign up too! HBBC runs from November 19-January 6 so that's plenty of motivation to stay active throughout the holiday season!
This week Amanda also introduced us to a second challenge called the Pile on the Miles 2011 which started in 2009. Monica over at Run, Eat, Repeat will be heading things up this year and you can check out her post for all the details. To sign up just email her at runeatrepeat @ gmail dot com. Pile on the Miles runs from November 1-November 24 (Thanksgiving) and it's a great way to motivate yourself to run some extra miles next month. Please email her by OCTOBER 30 if you wish to participate!
