Disclosure: I received a Get it All package as compensation for my partnership with Run The Year.
I have decided to take on a new challenge this coming year. I plan to conquer 2,016 miles in 2016. I have watched many of my runner friends take on these challenges of running the mileage that correlates with the year and honestly, I thought they were a little nuts and that this type of goal was way out of my reach. This year I got injured training for the NYC marathon and I haven’t been able to run since October and you know what??? It sucks and makes me appreciate every single moment I have been able to run and will be able to run.
You what else sucks?? Struggling with a chronic pain that impacts your running every single day. I had the pleasure of meeting Gelcys from Runner Unleashed who has scoliosis which causes her pain and breathing issues every single day. Despite her challenges she gets out there and runs through it all. She is one of the strongest people I have the pleasure to meet and I am glad that because of ASICS I have the pleasure of calling her a friend now. If she can get out there and run with no excuses, then I certainly can run, walk or crawl through 2,016 miles in 2016. This is why I decided to team up with Run The Year 2016!
Adam Goucher and Tim Catalano, motivational speakers and authors of the popular book Run The Edge, have created an exciting challenge for the New Year called Run The Year 2016. Run The Year is where individuals or teams pledge to conquer 2016 miles in 2016. You can run, walk, or crawl your way to the 2,016 miles!!!
How do you participate?? You register here and pay a one time flat fee of $25. Registration grants you access to the Run The Year online expo (and all the goodies inside), entrance into 365 days of giveaway contests and lotteries, year long motivation from an amazing community, and over $180 in free Run The Edge training plans. Check out all the goodies here.
Are medals and t-shirts included in the fee? Tech shirts and medals are not included in the $25 fee, but you can choose to add them at the time of registration and if you register on Black Friday Special you get Free Shipping when you use the promo code: GetLegs2016. This is not only an awesome challenge for yourself, but it would also make for an awesome gift for the holidays!!!!
I’m in! Are you???
