Family 5k

by JP on July 8, 2011

During the first 5k this past March the discussion of a family run came up. Different ideas have been bandied about over the last couple months, but tomorrow is the day. The truth is I nearly forgot that my aunt (who can be seen crossing the f

inish line of the Medtronic mile with me) set this up.

I am hoping it goes well because I’d like to make it a monthly get together. I think at this point there are a dozen of us. If you’re the short term planing genius type and can join let me know. I will certainly pass the details on to whomever would like a nice trip around a beautiful Minneapolis lake.

One of these days I’ll make it back to my computer and put together a slightly more substantial post. For now I have been using the WordPress app for android. I like it. Wondering how many others blog from a mobile device? It works great for coffee break or lunch break.

A monthly family 5k would be amazing! I hope it works out!

This doesn’t have anything to do with your 5k event, but rather the last point/question you make in the post. I blog through Squarespace and they don’t have an application for Android (yet), but I do have the ability to email posts through the system and have them publish. Honestly I have not done it yet, but it may come in handy on vacation in a couple of weeks!

I love the idea of a monthly family 5K, what a great way to encourage healthy behaviors among the whole family and receive social support for those behaviors at the same time. I hope that these events are going well for all of you. I’d like to invite you and your family to participate in the First Annual Virtual 5K on October 15/16. You can read more about it here: I’d also like to invite you to try out our site… (you can use the coupon code RUN5K for a free premium membership). This site helps people change behaviors in a lasting way. It can be used for weight loss, addiction recovery, career advancement, relationship improvement and many other things. I’ve used the site to help me lose 20 lbs so far in the past few months by changing my behaviors.
