Hey guys - hope you had a great day! Tomorrow is Friday Eve! Woo hoo! I wanted to let you know that my good friend Sarah is hosting a virtual 5k series on her blog, Licorice and Olives. I've signed up and think it would be great if you did too!
The way it works is pretty simple! All you have to do is first, register! Then, at your own pace and on your own time, complete a 5k (3.1 miles) each month for the next year! Submit your time to Sarah and she'll post the best times, as well as the most improved each month. Here's a look at the schedule:
January - Saturday 25th to Sunday 2nd February (entries due by 4th February) February - Saturday 22nd to Sunday 2nd March (entries due by 4th March) March - Saturday 22nd to Sunday 30th March (entries due by 1st April) April - Saturday 26th to Sunday 4th May (entries due by 6th May) May - Saturday 24th to Sunday 1st June (entries due by 3rd June) June - Saturday 21st to Sunday 29th June (entries due by 1st July) July - Saturday 19th to Sunday 27th July (entries due by 29th July) August - Saturday 23rd to Sunday 31st August (entries due by 2nd September) September - Saturday 20th to Sunday 28th September (entries due by 30th September) October - Saturday 25th to Sunday 2nd November (entries due 4th November) November - Satuday 22nd to Sunday 30th November (entries due 2nd December) December - Saturday 20th to Sunday 28th December (entries due 30th December)
*Make sure you track your run as proof!
This couldn't have come at a better time for me as I've been really struggling to get back into running since my marathon!! I really hope you'll join us!! Leave a comment if you have any quesitons, and either myself or Sarah will get back to you! Read more about the program on Sarah's blog here.
