What an exciting day! Tomorrow will be the first day of “5k Every Day in the Month of May 2018”! It is going to be an incredible journey!
We have around 100 people joining us this year for 5k May. THANK YOU to those who signed up through Vertical Runner Race Management. It is not too late to sign up. If you missed the official registration, but decide tomorrow to get your first 5k in and are committed to keeping it going, contact me and we’ll add you to the list.
My personal plan is to try to get the running finished as early as possible so that I can get my blog posted each night by 9pm EST. Feel free to subscribe to the blog so that you get updates sent automatically to your email inbox. We would love for you to check in each night, interact with the blog, and let us know how your 5k went, or what God was showing you in the daily bible reading. For your convenience, I put together a printable pdf chart that you can use to track your progress.
In case you didn’t get signed up early enough, or didn’t get this email from my brother, Brian, I’ll include his message here:
Hello Everyone!!!I am writing to you on the eve of what will likely be the most epic month of your running/walking lives to THANK YOU for embarking on what is going to be a month of MAY filled with lots of motion…like a 5k every day in the month of May!I love to run and have taken my brother, JP, along with me on my journey. JP is very passionate about his faith and his mission and would like to take all of us along on his journey. Together, we are going to take you places…a lot of places!Here’s what you do:1) Run or walk a 5k every day. It doesn’t have to be fast, pretty, early, late, with someone, alone…really there are no rules other than committing to make the time to cover the distance2) Share! Below are three great ways to share your experiences. We have a private facebook group that you can join, you can join the 5k in May STRAVA group if you are a STRAVA user, or you can follow along and join in the conversation on JP’s daily blog where he’ll be reading through 3 chapters of scripture, detailing his thoughts, and encouraging you to do the same.
