Great Job to all those who participated in January’s Challenge for a Change!!  Lots of options to get you kick started into a year of healthy living!!  Hope you are all sticking to your new years resolutions – eating healthy and exercising!!!

It seems we had a lot of folks starting the Couch to 5k (C25K) or 5K101 plans as a resolution and we’ve had a ton of requests for a virtual race….. and how can we deny our fans???

So this month we are keeping it simple and hosting the Healthy Heart Virtual 5k/10k!!! 
To enter all you have to do is complete both challenges below:

  • Fitness Challenge: 
    Run or walk 5k, 10k or Half Marathon (for the over achievers) any day in February! 
  • Healthy Eating Challenge:
    Record what you ate for dinner the night before your run and what you ate pre-run. 

If you are looking for some ideas for a ‘good’ pre-race meal – check out our friends over at Green Plate Rule for a few suggestions and recipes!!

Bonus Challenges: We will be offering a number ‘bonus’ challenges on both the Green Plate Rule facebook page and the Moms RUN This Town facebook page so make sure you “like” us and keep up with whats going on!!!  Here are two to get you started….

When you’ve completed the Virtual Race head over to our website and fill out the form.  One winner will be drawn at random to win a  prize package including Barleans Greens, a super awesome headband from Active Bands, assortment of stuff from GU Energy, and a Luna Bar assortment!!

If you haven’t read all the rules and regs for the 2012 Challenge for a Change PLEASE do so by clicking HERE.  

When you are done with the virtual race click here for the finishers form. As always, please consult with your doctor before starting a fitness routine or changing your diet. 


You must complete the virtual 5k/10k/Half Marathon by either walking or running – AND you have to include your meal the night before to be eligible.  Anyone can participate but you must be a resident of the USA or Canada to be eligible for prizes. 

Get the Bib (again, this is not mandatory to print or wear it during your run, but you WILL get an extra entry if we see a photo of you with it ;) )

    I will run this tomorrow morning, before I go to my dearest friend's mother's funeral, who just passed from an infection around her heart implant, with her name on my bib. This virtual race has more meaning to me than I had anticipated.
