Weav Run Streak Challenge

You all know Kelly Roberts, right?! If you don't, you should! She is AMAZING (not only as an encourager to all and inspiration to many, but just as a kick-ass lady) and I am lucky enough to call her a friend. She reached out and asked me to help spread the word about a run streak challenge that is kicking off TODAY. I knew a TON of you would be interested (not only in the streaking portion, but also in the app behind the idea), so wanted to give you a heads up!

Although we live on opposite sides of the country, whenever we get a chance to run together it's always a freakin' blast! #BadAssLadyGang

The goal is simple: run for thirty days straight, at least one mile per day. {November 13th through December 13th}


Why? Because rumor has it that 80% of New Year’s resolutions failed in FEBRUARY, so what better way to close out 2017 than by making that, “I’m going to run/workout regularly” resolution that you gave up on months ago a reality?!


Not only will you deserve a giant round of applause at the end, but if you complete the challenge you’ll earn a chance to win brand new, top-of-the-line running shoes ($150 value), just in time for Christmas (so even if Santa put you on the naughty list you'll have more than coal under the tree). It’s a running challenge fit for the holidays (pun-y, huh?!).
Oh yeah, and the ones putting it on... Weav Run! It’s a brand new app that syncs songs to your running tempo. Every time your foot lands on the ground, their app senses it and adapts the music in real time to match you — run faster, the songs speed up; slow down, so will they. Talk about MIND-BLOWING! I heard about it on a recent podcast that Kelly shared when she spoke with the creators (if you haven't heard to it yet, it is definitely worth the listen - it's hilarious!).


Studies show that being in sync with the music releases endorphins which delay fatigue, help fight pain, and increase performance! Plus — it feels magical to be in sync; it’s a total game-changer for running.


While running for 30 days straight might seem like a Herculean feat, using Weav Run will help to make it a breeze.

And, don't forget, running is supposed to be ENJOYABLE (although, I will be the first to admit, it isn't always easy - but having a challenge like this will help you stick it out when the going gets tough)! Let's use these next 30 days to shake off that holiday fog, run for fun, or give the gift of running to someone you love and encourage them to give it a try.

So, I guess the last (and probably the most important) question to ask is, WHO'S GOING STREAKING?!


Do you listen to music while you run/ workout?
