I received quite a surprise this month! I thought my time was up being a Jost Running Blogger. But I was given the opportunity to run April's race! I can't express how awesome Jost Running is! I love how the races benefit a different charity each month. And the bling is just amazing!
April's race is called "Unplugged." It benefits Best Buddies International. The idea is that running is when a lot of us unplug from our daily lives. It is a time to clear our heads and a stress reliever. This month Jost Running wants us to take it a step further and also unplug from any other distractions during our run like our music. They want us to run to our own rhythm.
So that was my plan! I didn't listen to music. I tried to just feel the run. To enjoy my surroundings. And to be thankful that I could run.
The first few miles were tough like always. And it was hot. But I persevered and finished the run!
And look at the amazing bling I earned!
Next month's race is called "Brave New Route." This one will benefit the ALS Association which is near and dear to my heart as I have a friend whose husband is battling Lou Gehrig's Disease. I hope you will register to run this one!
QOTD: Do you ever run virtual runs?
