Missing Out on #fitbloggin?

The bloggers, the 5k race, the networking, the fitness sessions, the fabulous speakers, the awesome learning opportunities…. I so wish I was there at Fitbloggin! I really wanted to go and was so bummed out that I had to give up my Livebloggin’ position. I’m following all of the tweets and hoping to learn as much as I can, and you can bet your bottom dollar that I’ll be reading every single conference recap that I can find!

While we may be missing out on actually being there – the one part that we don’t have to miss out on is the 5k race.

We don’t need to be there to run!

That’s why Heather of Run Faster Mommy and I have decided to host a VIRTUAL #fitblogginhome 5K …. Complete with race bibs!

Here are the details:

What? Run 5k

When? Anytime this weekend – Friday May 20 – Sunday May 22, 2011

Tweet? With the hashtag #fitblogginhome

Wear? Print out and wear the Race Bib above

Prizes? Heather (Run Faster Mommy) has graciously donated a SportLine Pedometer and a Bibkeeper Book.

Winners will be randomly drawn from those that “Enter” the race below and share a picture of themselves with their bib on their blog.  We will draw winners, then look on your blog for a picture of you with your race bib on.  Deadline to post pictures is 11:59 pm Monday, May 23, 2011.

Race Entry Form:

I got out and did my 5k this morning…

      Hi Monique,

      The image opens into a new window, then in your browser, go to: File, then scroll to print.


      You can right click & save, then photoshop it onto a picture of you (like I did because I don’t have a printer).

    We so missed you but it was GREAT to have you in the twitter stream! I faked the 5k (ala Kris style) – did my leisurely warm up (uber leisurely, I think it was at least 15 minutes walking), but then I did 3 and 5 minute jog segments – off and on – until I arrived back at the hotel. No pressure – all alone – high fives with the “runners” as they were looped back. It was really fun! Next year you must come – it was amazing to meet everyone! xoxo

    This is a great idea! Love creative ideas like this.

    If anyone needs help with printing let me know, maybe I can help troubleshoot.
