You are officially invited to join me in running (or walking) at least a 5k Every Day in the Month of May!
Last year I decided to run at least a 5k Every Day in the Month of May, and it was such a great experience for me! When I started, I had no idea how helpful running would be to me on an emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual level, but it became such an important part of my sanity and well-being.
I would say that running was my savior, but that’s not true. Jesus is my savior, and in His mercy and grace He used running in my life to help me through a very difficult season.
This year I am inviting you to join me on the 5k Every Day in the Month of May journey.
How can you do that? It’s simple (not easy, but simple).
1. Commit to running / walking at least 3.1 miles (5k) each day in May. I will personally be running at least 3.1 miles each day and will be making some of those runs public, which means that you can physically join me! But whether you run with me or not, the commitment is to run / walk at least 3.1 miles every day in May.
2. This year I am adding a second element to the challenge! Along with running / walking 3.1 miles every day in May, I will also be reading 3 chapters of Scripture every day. I will start on May 1 with Matthew 1 and will read read 3 chapters every day, getting all the way to Acts 4 by the end of the month. I will be blogging each day about my run, as well as sharing what God is teaching me (either through the run or through the scripture reading, or both). I am inviting you to join me! The challenge is to read at least 3 chapters of Scripture every day as we walk our way through the Gospels and into the book of Acts.
3. Interact with the daily blog!! To let me know that you are tracking with me, check in each day on the blog (posted at http://www.jeffpolen.com) to let me know how your 5k went and / or what God was teaching you through the daily Bible reading.
4. Claim your awesome prize!! Anyone who completes the 5k portion of the challenge will get a pretty cool T-shirt saying that they survived the “5k Every Day in the Month of May” challenge! Anyone who completes the scripture reading portion will receive a copy of my new book, “The Greatest Sacrifice”.
Remember that you have to check in each day on my blog to let me know that you’re still tracking with me!!!
Okay, the challenge has officially been issued and you are officially invited. Let the month of May begin!
