We made it past Hump Day with yet another cold weather run! This week, we set a record with 13 participants. It’s beginning to dawn on us how fitness doesn’t “just happen,” it is a practice which repeatedly leads to success. Two of our members are training for the Derby Marathon & Mini-Marathon in April; a few more of us are thinking of joining in as a relay. The practice of running a marathon — the habit of creating mileage every day — is what builds success on marathon day. It doesn’t take a superhuman to run 26.2 miles; it just takes a person dedicated to making room in each day to accomplish small goals.
Anyway, we digress. The short version is: we’re thinking of putting together a relay team for the marathon in April. Our office now has a treadmill desk, so there’s no reason not to exercise, right? But they also have beer, so…
Anyway, as some of you may know, we also have a sister event called the Urban Bike Adventure which occurs in several different cities every year. We started a giveaway on Instagram for some Urban Bike Adventure gear, so if you have an account, check us out @urbanbikeadventure and hash tag your pictures #urbanbikeadventure to show us how you ride your bike in the winter.
And while we’re promoting our own social media, check out DCRC on twitter @runderbycity.
See you next Wednesday!
