But the past few months, I have only been running once a week (a Saturday race), occasionally throwing in a mid-week run. So I had to turn it up a notch to be sure I got those miles in this month! The prizes (new jogging strollers) are being given away to the finishers in a few days. *crossing my fingers*!! If I win, I have to provide evidence of my miles. So I kept track of them with my runkeeper app on my phone. Running w/ my phone used to be annoying. Now I feel naked without it! In addition, there is a "silly running photo contest" going along with the virtual event. Of course I had to do a couple submissions :)
Another benefit of participating in this was that I had to learn to use Twitter! Had to communicate w/ the group using #joggermommarathon tags. I'm still not very savvy w/ it. But I kindof understand how the whole hashtag and @ sign and RT thing work. Probably not going to be a regular tweeter, but I'm glad I understand it a little better and could use it more if I needed/wanted to.
So..... now this is over.... I need a new quirky online activity-related event to participate in and dream of winning! Or maybe I should just get more sleep..... :)
