10,000 Steps

 

How are you doing on your resolution? Hey. Slips happen. It’s how you get up try again that counts. No judging. Start right here and let's go forward.

Join me, my friends from the Fifth Third River Bank Run and the great partners at Blue Care Network to take the free 10,000 Steps Challenge.  Just click here to get started:  http://bit.ly/10000Steps2014

Okay, so now what?

Now we walk. This Saturday morning, we 10,000 Steppers will do our training walk at the same time as the Fifth Third Riverbank runners and road warriors do theirs. They go outside. (So brave!) We stay inside on the track. (So warm!)

WALKERS DO NOT NEED TO BE SIGNED UP FOR ANY RACE. Heck, you don’t even need to be signed up for 10,000 Steps. We can sign you up Saturday morning. Again, 10,000 Steps is FREE. If you want to join me in the 5K Walk at the River Bank Run, I would love that!

To help keep you motivated, walkers can register in the Community Room with Blue Care Network by 8a and you could win a Fitbit!  I’ll so you how mine works. It’s very cool.

David D. Hunting YMCA -- 475 Lake Michigan Dr., Grand Rapids 49503

Saturday (2/1) 7:15-7:45a -- "Benefits of Cross Training"

Saturday, (2/1) 8:00a -- Training Run/Walk 

This is a free training run or walk led by the Fifth Third River Bank Run Road Warriors.  We'll meet at the YMCA for directions, maps and pre-race water before hitting the streets to train with 3 and 7 mile training runs (water and Gatorade provided at aid stations on routes).  Walkers are invited to use the YMCA's indoor track to get their steps in.  

After training, return to the YMCA Communty Room to enjoy refreshments from D&W/Family Fare and Panera Bread along with networking with event staff and Metro Health Sports Medicine.  No pre-registration required. 

Let's DO THIS!
