... be 33 years and 2 days old!
How about that for a sweet announcement?
Oh you wanted something a little more exciting?
Wow! You folks are demanding.
Well I think I can find something else up my sleeves.
#WOMSStreak #Day300: I can't believe this day has come!! I never thought I'd run at least 1 mile every day for 300-consecutive days! It's truly been a life-changing experience. I can't wait to hit the 1-year mark! :) So fitting to see a heart leaf during today's 3-miler. I tested out these sweet new @newbalance sneakers in honor of a special announcement hitting the blog tomorrow! ;) #YayForFunSecrets #AnyGuesses #rundisney #runchat #fitfluential #fitbloggin #SweatPink #girlsgonesporty #teamsparkle #sparklysoulheadbands #sparklysoulambassador #TedysTeam #FightStroke #weightwatchers #weareallathletes #weightoffmyshoulders #rocknblog #instarunners #womensrunning #womensrunningcommunity
While celebrating the 300th day of my running streak yesterday - ummm how did that happen??? - I alluded to a special announcement with New Balance.
The announcement is...
I will be running Reach The Beach
with Team New Balance!!!!
Wwwaaahhhooo!! The fun is going down September 18-19. What a great way to celebrate my birthday. Right? :) I am psyched and honored to be a part of Team New Balance. I am waiting word on the team's official name and hashtag. ;)
What is Reach The Beach you ask?
The New Balance Reach The Beach (RTB) Relay began in 1999 by two multi-sport athletes with a goal of creating a 200-mile overnight team relay event that would run from the White Mountains, to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and conclude at a beach front party in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire.
How it works
Reach The Beach consists of 12-person standard teams and 6-person ultra teams that will rotate through 36 transition areas as they cover the approximate 200-mile course. Each relay team member will run 3 legs (6 legs for ultras) of varying lengths and difficulty, and will cover an average total distance of about16.6 miles (about 33 miles for ultras). Runners rotate in a set order once the race begins and will be obligated to follow this rotation until the final runner reaches the beach.
We will be a team of 12 and there are some sweet bloggers joining me on this adventure:
It was so fun I jumped at the chance to do it all again. This time in the mountains of New Hampshire.
So that's the sweet news for the day! Amazing, right?
Will you be running Reach The Beach? What's your team's name?
