I want to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in the #stellarmiles Makeshift 5k on Saturday!
I had a great time walking with Javacia, the fearless leader of See Jane Write and my blogging guru. I kept one eye on Facebook and Instagram and was so excited to see all of your posts coming in, and those that came later in the day when the temperature was cooler.
I have to say, what I have loved most about organizing the Makeshift 5k is building a community of people who want to cheer each other on as we work on our fitness.
This event started out as a way to keep my walking/running fitness level up in between larger “official” races that I like to do. But budget-wise, registering for a 5k every couple of months at $30 a pop just wasn’t going to happen. So I wanted to set a regular date for myself to get walking/running, and then I thought, why not invite readers, family and friends to join in?!
Thankfully you have all responded so positively, and it’s definitely something I want to keep going!
I know we all need a little push sometimes to work on our fitness. It’s not easy to squeeze in workouts with our busy schedules. But having a goal like a 5k can keep us focus and motivated. It’s been working for me, and I hope it works for you, too!
Mark your calendars for Sept. 26, and check back here for more updates!
