7 on th 7th Sign Up

7 miles on February 7th
It's free...do I really need to say anything else. A RACE...a little competition...something to get you moving... FOR FREEEEEE.

You can run it, walk it, skip it, crawl it, however you'd like to do it so that you move for a continuous stretch of seven miles...except for biking or driving or moving yourself by means other than your feet...this one is about being on your feet.

RULES
Sign Up
Go for seven miles sometime during the first week of Feb.
Find a Place; Do the Race
Report your time by Feb 8.

Just another friendly way to get you motivated to finish out the winter and move in to your spring races feeling strong. I hope to have some prizes lined up...we shall see...we shall see.

For added fun do the race with other folks in your area!! KimPossible has already gotten a few ladies who are not bloggers to agree to join us for 7 on the 7th and then reward ourselves with delictable chocolate at this local place call Christopher Elbows...I've never been and boy am I excited!

*I figure knowing what others may be running will inspire some of you to push a little harder, you can't help yourselves, you're all crazy little competitors.
