Monthly Mile Club
Some of you may have noticed that I had taken a little break from writing lately. This is mostly because I needed some down time but also because I have decided to start a club to help people be more active. After writing my post “Adventures of a mom with a fitness tracker” I started to really think back to my experience with the corporate wellness challenge I participated in. Since I became a mom this was what had motivated me the most to stay active and work hard to reaching fitness goal. Having so many people I worked with being supportive and being able to set my own goal really helped. I also thought it was really easy to keep track of since you could sync it up to your fitness tracker.
While I was thinking about this all the sudden it hit me. I could probably find a way to do this on a smaller scale involving my blog.
That’s when I started to google search all kinds of things about starting a fitness challenge and after several hours searching I found this website Challenge Runner which allows people to start a community challenge and set their own goals. It also allows you to use many different tracking devices to upload your walking data so anyone can join.
I’ve decided to call the challenge #MonthlyMileClub by clicking on the link you can register for the challenge that will start on July 1st. You should be able to register, set your own goal, and sync the challenge to a fitness tracker. You can also manually enter your miles in as well.
This challenge will run for the Month of July as a test run. I am inviting anyone and everyone to join and if it works out will hopefully make it a monthly challenge. My hope is that if I get enough people to sign up and participate that we might eventually be able to have some giveaways for those who reach the most miles. I am learning how to make badges and will be creating ones for those who make it on to the top of the leader board.
I hope that people will join and just try to have some fun with it. This is not meant to be a super serious fitness challenge but just an attempt to improve ones wellness and help motivate people to be more active and aware of their daily activity level.
Below is the badge I created for the challenge and I encourage those who participate to use this badge if you blog about your experience. It’s my first attempt at a badge so feel free to offer any advice on how to make it better.
Hope to see you all participate! Much love to you all.
