Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics.This week’s Tuesday Topic: Show us your year in bling! You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
When I first saw the topic for this week I laughed and instantly thought, do I even have any bling to share? I didn’t run an official race this year and didn’t have any racecations, but I do have some bling to share from this year. As a disclaimer, I’m also including a shirt and a travel cup as part of my bling this year, lol.
This event on Global Running Day was fun! I was able to “run” with people from all over the country. Basically a virtual baton was passed every 30 minutes. After I ran my leg of the race in the morning, I texted the next person in line and then they ran. It was a unique way to celebrate one of the most important days of the year for runners.
This was a really cool challenge! I ran the double border challenge (1,000K) with my mom and two other running friends. We had a few months to complete the challenge and we actually ended up completing it after only 2 months. I enjoyed this challenge because it was an ongoing event vs. a virtual race.
This was a great virtual race – this year the 10K is really my sweet spot. The main reason I signed up for this virtual race is because all of the race entry money went to various charities in the Hartford area. One day I’m actually run this race live!
This medal was definitely earned. It was my only half marathon of the year and I ran it with very little training. By mile 10 I was ready to throw in the towel but I kept pushing forward until my watch hit 13.1 miles. Everything hurt and my legs were killing me for days after, but I guess that is what happens when you don’t do any long runs for months and months – oops.
Orangetheory Fitness Dri Tri
This was such a fun event! You start off with a 2,000 meter row followed by 300 bodyweight exercises and then a 5K run. I did it last year but this year it was held outside which made it 10x better AND I got a PR! 🙂 This travel mug is huge and I’ve used it to drink water and tea throughout the day (it’s a little too large for my morning coffee).
Orangetheory Fitness Hell Week
I went to 8 OTF classes in a row to get this shirt so I feel like it deserves to be in my year in bling post!
Tell me: Do you have a favorite medal from this year? Share your year in bling! Do you have a favorite local/small business?
