Today was one of my short runs for the week, and day 3 of 70 of my training for the Napa Valley Marathon. The NVM is March 2nd of next year – it is my next race! I am waaaay excited cats about this race. I used to live in Napa, and I love the area. Check out my route for today’s run:
Today on my run I used my new app Charity Miles . I LOVE this idea!! If you run, walk or bike you need to use this app. Basically it works like this: “It’s as easy as this: get moving. Bikers earn 10¢ a mile and walkers and runners earn 25¢ a mile, up to our initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.” (from charitymiles.org).
I ran for the ASPCA today. Here is the impact of my run:
There are 25 different charities that you can earn money for. Some of the charities I have never heard of. On the app there is a description of what each charity does, I appreciated that. You can choose a different organization each time or keep raising money for the same one. This app helps raise awareness and money for people here in the US or around the world.
I want to say again…I love this idea! This is such a great way to give back – while doing something you love! Win, win 🙂
