Although we are still three weeks away from the official day of summer, I am going to declare it summer in Colorado. Today the temperature is in the high 80s and judging by how hot our home was last night, I am guessing the temps did not drop much lower than that in the evening.
With the summer months comes bbq’s, leisurely bike rides, family time, fresh mown grass, long sunny days, lemonade and popsicle’s, road trips and afternoons spent lounging at the pool. Some people workout more to look dyno-mite at the beach and others use their precious time to spend with family. Typically, I come out of winter hibernation and use May-October as my months to explore outside while sweating as much as humanly possible.
This year is no different. A friend of mine started a website called Slambooy Fitness (last name: Lambooy. Fun play on words, right?) to share his knowledge and passion for fitness with others through his health tips, workout plans, meal prep instruction, and monthly challenges. His first challenge already has a massive following that I wanted to share with you, in case you needed some support/inspiration/challenge in your (sweaty) life. Here’s the deal:
- Run a 5k everyday in June (start today since I am just now telling you about this!)
- Post your run details on Instagram or Twitter
- Use #slambooy5kchallenge to find others that can support you
- Start your summer off by annihilating this goal!
This month I am committing to this challenge and I hope that you will too! If you need any personalized support, shoot me an email and we can cheer each other on. Happy sunny, sweaty and goal-crushy summer!
**Picture LOL: my cousin found this on a workout site and forwarded it to me. How did this person know that I rock a 10 minute pace?!**
