Stride Through the Holidays Running Challenge

Have I mentioned we get a pretty nice autumn here in Arlington, Texas?  I’m so glad.  Even though I was willing to move back to the desert I’m secretly rejoicing I didn’t have to.  The cooler days, changing leaves and smell of fireplaces being lit make me happy.
 
Autumn days also make me want to run.  I run best in cooler weather.  So, now that temperatures are steadily staying lower the last of my excuses for not running is gone. 
 
However, I seem to be one who is motivated only when I’m accountable to someone, even in the smallest way (read: blogging helps me stay accountable.)  I’ve looked over training plans over the past month, but nothing jumped out at me.
 
Then I received an email from the ladies at Another Mother Runner and I was hooked.  I pondered the Stride Through the Holidays Challenge before going back, at the last minute, and signing up.
 
This is a simple five-week training plan that focuses more on minutes spent being active than a distance.  It also combines my love of running with my love of giving.  All profits from this challenge are being donated to Heart Strides
 
So, there it is.  I am running again.  And I’m helping another mother runner at the same time.  Yes, it’s a lovely time of year.
