In order to keep my half-marathon training in the back of my mind at all times, I decided to form a team for Alverno's 10K contest. Each person much keep track of the number of steps they take using a pedometer, and each person makes a pledge to themselves to walk a 10K a day--or get as close to a 10K as possible!
Our team's name is Team Hodgepodge. We are a group of various people: students, faculty, staff, and some of us don't know one another. We pledged to walk a 10K per day; even though the requirements are to walk, one can keep track of running and working out. This is especially great because I usually run a few miles every week, but now that it's a contest I have a goal to work toward, and I'm looking forward to running every day! We're gunna be awesome...
Anyway, this is going to be an excellent way for me to keep on top of cross training and staying healthy, and I believe that everyone can benefit from a little bit of competition. By having a set goal and competition I am going to be able to meet my goals. I am very much looking forward to what this 10K contest will bring.
P.S. - There is a dance contest at the party for the participants (smiley face!).
