Revving up over the next 3 months

Friday, October 30, 2015

Just a quick post to share some community initiatives to help keep you on track from now 'til February. I really embrace these sort of genuine campaigns because with more free offerings for physical activity in local communities, I hope it results in better health.


British sport brand, Ashmei, wants you to run 1 mile or ride 5 miles every day in November, which they have dubbed GO-vember.  I wrote a review of their socks over on the H2 Life Blog.  Over the course of November, I will post reviews on their women's capris and running jacket, along with a review from James on the men's cycling jacket.  Hopefully our info will help you figure out how to spend your 35% discount in December.  


Last last 3 years, I have brought you the Zero Calorie Advent Calendar (ZCAC) with Becca and Christine.  We announced over the summer that the calendar wouldn't be continuing as our lives have changed quite a bit since we started ZCAC.  That doesn't mean December won't be fun.  Some new kids came on the advent scene last year and have remained strong ever since.

AdventRunning, which has grown into AR Collective, are people who love to run. Near, far, city, trail, if you can run it, they want to be there.  James and Claudia feel like old friends as I have watched their love of running infect much of London's running scene over the last year.  The advent bit is simple- run 30 minutes every day from 1-25th December.  Any pace, any place.  Just run.

If you can't wait until 1st December, Advent Collective have track sessions on Tuesdays, Beigel Runs on Friday mornings, and long runs on Sundays.  


There are 2 virtual runs you can sign up now for (no time like the present).  If you are a beginner, UK Fitness Bloggers are offering a 5K race for £10 (£3.50 of which goes to RODS Racing).  We recomend using the NHS Couch to 5K (C25K) program as training over the course of the month.  Stay tuned as I will the hosting a 5K to help people earn their medals at the end of January.

Run Mummy Run is a online community of 16,000 women (you don't have to be a mom) who are thinking about running, used to run but want to start again, just started running, or are old pro's.  Their community challenge in January has an awesome roulette medal and will aim to accumulate as many miles as they can from all participants.

Let me know if there are any other local programs that encourage physical activity I should know about in the comments below.
