Blogger Run Day Recap!

Blogger Run Day was a great success, with a bunch of you running on March 7th! Here's a recap - you can click on the links to read everyone's stories. Thank you all so much for participating and making this so much fun - I loved knowing that while Kelly and I were running our 5K together, so many of you were also running that day!

Beth did her 5K with a 17% improvement - nice work!
Debby ran her best mile with a time of 10:35 - she is speedy!
Destination: Athlete cut off 8 minutes from her record 10K time - congrats!
Errign ran nearly 4 miles on her treadmill, without stopping, in 41 minutes - way to go!
Fran ran her first race of the year, a 4K through the woods, and finished in 26:51 - wow!
Hotch Potchery ran her half marathon in under 3 hours - congratulations!
Jen got her bad self to the gym and ran a 5K on the treadmill - great job!
Kelly not only ran her 5K in 39:13, she ran for 2 miles straight without stopping - woohoo!
Lori ran 3 miles for fun, with snow on the ground - now that's dedication!
MizFit was a princess and ran (and finished!) her first half marathon, at Disney World, no less!
The Merry ran 3 miles on her own - good job, Merry!
Robin, who thought she would be sidelined by illness, rallied at the last minute and ran the Disney princess half marathon - so glad you got to do it!!!
266, on an impulse, joined us and ran a fast 5K after midnight - glad to have you along!

Poor Kyle was rained out - he has been a real go-getter with his C25K training and I know he was disappointed to miss the run. Next time, Kyle!


  1. Looks like everyone had fun :)

    This was a great idea Shelley!

  2. I agree with errign - great idea!

    I never thought of running a 5K on the treadmill! I'm gonna remember that the next time!

  3. Congrats to everyone! I'm in awe!

  4. I'm in such admiration of all of you! Bravo! Bravo!

    You do run, run; you do run, run.

  5. Congrats to Team Blogger on your runs! (that sounds nasty....like you need some medicine or something) You all did great. I loved being able to run with every one.

    Yes, we do need to do this again. Still thinking the Hotter 'n Hell Treadmill 5K might be fun this summer. LOL

    Great job, y'all!!!! And thanks to Shelley for being such a sweety and organzing the Blogger Run Day.

  6. How nice of you to mention everyone who participated. When's our next Blogger run day? :)

  7. Those are some great results! How fun! I hope to participate another time.

  8. Awesome! I will so join you guys next time!
