March Running Challenges: @Zoomarun @Fitfluential

I will be the first to admit, I am happy to say GOODBYE to February and HELLO to March!

Super excited to turn the calendar and come out of hibernation. Well, at least a little. I hear 90+ million people are going to be affected by yet another winter storm tomorrow…

I’m not worried…

I’m all set for the month.

No need to leave if I have coffee by my side ;)

March is the month of new beginnings and do I have some really cool March Running Challenges in store for me and you! Won’t you join me?!

March Challenge #1

#ZOOMAphotoaday by my friends at ZOOMA Women’s Race Series and Altra Running.

Photo: Ready for some fun that happens to include sweet prizes? Join our #ZOOMAphotoaday challenge for March. Each week one lucky person will win a pair of Altra Running shoes. Details here:

You can play along on Instagram or Facebook. For instructions on the game click here.

Why play? Because it’s a lot of FUN and because there’s a weekly winner for a pair of Altra Shoes! HOLLA!

Here’s my Day 2: Outside

It was a beautiful morning to say the least! I love, love, love sunrises!

Be sure to include me if you’re on instagram! I love to see your posts too! @mamapoolecooks

March Challenge #2

I saw this challenge a little bit late in the day but wanted to add it to the list. Honestly, I need to know what my legs can do.

FitFluential and @Reebok are hosting a 100 miles challenge!

Yes you can win @Reebok gear too!

100 miles is a lot you may say? So did I, but I’m up for the challenge. You can run, walk or hike your 100 miles. It’s up to you. To make it even easier, they post a suggestive running schedule as well.

I’m keeping you up to date with my progress as well. I want to see yours too!

Day 1: 2 miles

You need a good old sweat pic for proof right?

Day 2: 5.3 miles. YES!!!! MY LONGEST RUN EVER (so far!)

I should also MENTION…

    …and i was just encouraging my sister to get over a training slump over the phone… it has so much to do with the weather. i told her, “mid-february to mid-march is the hardest ‘month’. just get through that time, and you’ll be alright.” That’s my mantra!
