Operation Skinny Jeans: Virtual Turkey Trot

Virtual Turkey Trot

Were you thinking to yourself "self- I wanna do a Turkey Trot but 1. There are none available near me. 2. I don't want to wake up that early. 3. But I will be cooking a turkey. 4. I don't want to pay $50 to run when I can just do it for free... "

Me too.

Pretty much to all of those.

So I had a fun idea!

A Virtual Turkey Trot! Yay!

Here is how it will work. Sometime on Thursday or Friday, run 3.1 miles (or as far as you want really...), track it using your Garmin or app on your phone, then write about it and link up on Monday! I will throw together a cute little logo to link up with for you all by the end of the week, but if you wanna join, comment so I can think if all of you while I pound that pavement! I might even make a Spotify playlist that I can share with you all so we can listen to the same music (if you are interested).

So yay! I am excited.

Nextly (it's a real word. Deal with it :P ) I am going to bug you EVERY DAY this week about Ash and my Diet Bet! It starts on Thursday (yes, turkey day) and goes until Christmas DAY!

We will hold your hand through every leftover turkey sandwich, every cookie exchange and every super fattening holiday meal that is coming your way in the next 4 weeks! Prove to yourself, and your friends and family, that you will NOT be derailed by the holidays and that you WILL lose weight in the next 4 weeks, no matter how much they laugh at you and call you crazy (true story).

  2. Yes yes yes! I just committed to 14 5Ks in 2014 and this will be a great way to get started (nobody will mention that it's still 2013 and crush my spirit, right?). Thanks for giving me some motivation to run past one measly mile, which is what I've been doing lately.

  5. I'll be taking a power hour Flywheel class on Thanksgiving. Does that count?! ;) I also have a half marathon on Sunday. Not sure if I'll be running on Thanksgiving or the day after. But hey, I'll try to get one in!

  10. Yea - I wanted my family and me to do a turkey trot too but didn't want to spend the $100 so I would love to partake. I don't have blog either but will be participating for sure! Thanks for the extra encouragement and making it possible for me to say I did a turkey trot :o)

  12. Yes! I'm in!! :) I was planning to do a Turkey Run but I have had a horrible cold that has been hanging on since the end of last week. And I didn't want to be better in time to get sick again especially with 2 babies in the house. And the weather here in Northern Indiana seems like it will be very cold and snowy tomorrow.
