Hello Lovlies! I’m very excited to be linking up today for Healthy Habits link party on Teachers of Good Things Blog.
Today I’m talking about a topic I love – Running!


Before moving to Florida, I ran off and on for 9 months. I got to the point where I was really truly loving it! But last summer was crazy with the Mexico Missions Trip and Moving to Florida, so I had basically quit running by the end of August.

Now that we are settled in our new home, I struggled to get motivated and find the love of running again. So I set myself a goal for 2013.

Run 500 miles between January 1st and December 31st.

I did the math, and I have to run approximately 1.9 miles 5 days a week for 52 weeks. I can totally do that, but it still is just scary enough to keep me working hard at it.


To keep track of my runs I am using the Nike Running App on my iPhone 4s. The app tracks each of my runs and my per mile pace throughout the entire thing.


I can also track where I ran and how it felt. For you more serious runners, it also keeps track of the miles on your shoes so that you know when to replace them.


I deleted all my previous runs, so that my total mile tracker will keep going up and up and up till I hit the goal of 500 miles!


And although I don’t have anyone to run with each day, I have a few friends joining me on this challenge. And it’s not too late for you to start! I am challenging you to either run, walk, or bike 500 miles in 2013. Pick one or do a combination of all 3! I am trying to run all 500 miles, but if I encounter an injury (praying not), then that may change. If you want to join me, connect via Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #go500

If you’re nervous about joining in late and loosing that 2 week advantage, then start your 365 day challenge today. So your goal is to #go500 between January 15, 2013 and January 14, 2014. Deal?

Will you join me?

Be blessed

P.S. Working out is easier when you’re eating healthy too. Want a yummy salad recipe? Well, you’re in luck. I posted one today – Chef’s Salad
