The Super Grover 10K gave me the confidence and training I needed to keep going and complete my first ever half marathon in the fall! Plus the shirt was super cute, I get comments about it all the time.
I have wanted to make walking more of a regular habit for a long time, but never found the motivation. I signed up for the 100 mile challenge in January and crossed my fingers that I could get it done by December. Being able to see how every mile gets you that much closer to the next goal is so motivating! It’s early June and I’m 75 miles in to my 100!!!
It would be so easy many days to just say forget it I’m not walking today, but knowing I’m racking up the miles to the challenge is a good motivator for me!
This race has changed my life. This has motivated me to get up each morning and do what I can - and over time I've been able to do more and more. I'm now running 3 miles on most days.
The Sesame Street Challenge was lotsa fun and the Facebook chat group has proven to be tremendously supportive and motivating!!
I moved a lot less during Covid and spent the last year just trying to make it day-to-day. As a result, like many, I got a little softer and added a few pounds. This has gotten me really moving.
This has been a great motivator for me and it’s been so much fun earning my medals.
This challenge was a much needed work-out motivator after the end of 2020. What I didn’t anticipate was a truly inspirational online group supporting each other in our mile-by-mile journey. I was told there would be Cookies but have gotten so much more out of this experience!
I did better than I imagined. I smashed both 500 and 100 in just over 4 months and shed 20 lbs! I feel stronger, healthier and me and my tiny human have matching shirts . Thanks for the fun!!!
This challenge was a blast! I signed up in order to shed a few pounds, be healthier, and to earn some rad swag!
This race has changed my life. When I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over five years ago, I thought my race days were over. This challenge has motivated me to get up each morning and do what I can - and over time I've been able to do more and more. I'm now running 3 miles on most days and the possibility of doing an in-person race is becoming a reality.
