February 1st and Things are Happening This Month!

It's February 1st and it is the day I am joining Amanda and many others in a formal even that will help us remembr to say THANK YOU to those we meet and greet on a daily basis, and to appreciate the people in our lives, beginning with ourselves.


Please visit Run to the Finish and read about the challenge, and do join in if you are interested.  I would love to see you there.

There are a couple of virtual runs that I am planning to take part in this month....

The first is on Saturday, February 11th and it is in honor of Sherry Arnold, the runner who was abducted and murdered in Montana in January.  Her cousin, Beth, who blogs at Shut Up and Run, has organized a wonderful tribute event.  Please check Beth's post and join in

And the second is a LEAP YEAR virtual run.  It is is a 2.9 miler on Wednesday, February 29th, of course! This is a fun event with great prizes and is sponsored by Erica who writes Life as a Running Mom.

And don't forget about the HANDFUL BRA giveaway that is going on until the end of the month.  Please check it out here if you are interested in wining!

Here is to a new month.. I hope it is a wonderful one for you!

Do you have goals for February?
