Happy Monday! It’s hard to believe we’re only a few weeks from the new year. One of my goals is to continue to work on my short race pacing (after I survive the marathon!), and a little accountability never hurts.
I’d love for you to join me for “5 by the 5th” – a virtual race series in which we run a 5k or 5 mile run by the 5th of each month (for time or for fun), from January to June, 2013.
If you’ve done HBBC with Amanda in the past, you know she starts the new year with a 5k fun run. Amanda and I have teamed up to offer the Resolution Fun Run on January 1st as the kick off for the 5 by the 5th Virtual Run Series.
The 5 by the 5th series will run from January to June, with the option to run a 5k or 5 miler by the 5th of each month. You can run once, or every month, and it will begin with the Resolution Run on January 1, 2013.
The series of virtual runs provides an opportunity to win prizes every month, or to get competitive with yourself and track your speed or progress each month if you’d like to. New runners and walkers are also welcome!
- All of the races are free.
- Record your time each month as evidence that you ran, and each run recorded will count toward monthly prizes.
- If you only run one race, your name will stay in the drawing through all six months. If you run all six races, you’ll have six entries by June’s prize drawing.
- Tweets and shares will count toward additional entries.
- If you blog about your races, I’ll provide a link up each month to share your post.
We’ll kick everything off with the Resolution Run. If you are local to Houston or Miami, you can also opt to meet up for a local fun run that morning. I’ll email details about the Houston run, and the Miami fun run will take place at 9 AM at South Pointe Park, Miami Beach (neither one is timed!)
Prizes! Prizes will be pulled each month, and include:
Tweet or share on facebook for an extra prize entry. Here’s one option: “Join the 5 by the 5th Virtual run series with @mommyrunfaster – sign up here: http://wp.me/p2fC61-15C “

This is also a great way to get races in for Jill and Jen’s 13 in 2013 race challenge series.
We’re excited to kick off the new year with a run- hope you can join us!
What are your running goals for the new year?
