It seems many of us are having a very difficult time finding the proper motivation to get out and run in the colder winter weather. Never fear! The Marathon Mommies are here to help you! I am instituting the first-ever Marathon Mommy "Run-for-the-Bling" Contest! I have a little side-hobby of making jewelry, so... whoever runs the most days in a two-week period will receive a Suzie Petunia original - delivered right to your mailbox. The contest will begin today (no time to procrastinate!) December 1 and run (ha ha... a little running pun) until Saturday, December 15. Of course we'll be relying on the honor system here. I'll put a post up each day starting tomorrow, and everyone who has run that day will need to leave a comment letting us all know they got out and faced the winter weather. It doesn't matter how far you run. But if you don't leave a comment letting us know you ran that day then you won't get credit for that day. Got it? No comment = no credit for running that day. (Warning: All cheaters will be forced to run Heater Road near my house. Trust me... you DO NOT want to run Heater Road. I did it once...well, I walked most of it... and it was by mistake!! I was lost.) You're gonna love me for this. But you're going to love yourself even more for getting out and running!
Now, lace up your running shoes, set your alarm for an ungodly early hour, or strap those kiddos into the jogging stroller and LET'S RUN-FOR-THE-BLING!
(The prize will resemble one of the bracelets shown above.)
P.S. You do not have to be a contributor to enter this contest. But please, no crazies allowed.
