                What the Fall is Happening Winter Challenge     

     We miss everyone and can’t wait to see you again.  Unfortunately it appears we’re going to be in this mask wearing, social distancing phase for a while, so in the meantime we’re gonna challenge you with a Fun Winter Workout Challenge to keep you motivated until we can hang out with you again.  From October through February we have a challenge for you. We’re hoping we’ll be running together by the end of the challenge, if not, well…..I don’t even want think about my state of mind if that happens.

Here’s all the deets:

     We have partnered with 5 of our favorite vendors to keep you motivated through the winter months.   During each month you must log an activity in the Strava club ‘What The Fall is Happening Challenge.  I know you may not want to run 20 days of the month and that’s just fine.  There’s lots of activities that can keep us motivated.  Hiking, Running, Cycling, Yoga, weight lifting, throwing the ball for your dog or laser chasing with your cat -anything that motivates you and gives you happiness (let’s keep it PG rated here 😊 ).  At the end of the month anyone who has logged an activity for at least 20 days of the month gets schwag from our monthly partner.  Only one activity a day counts towards your monthly goal of 20.  Be ready for a little bonus challenge during the month for fun schwag.

     All logged activity will be verified by the first week of the following month and schwag can be picked up starting the first Friday through the 15th, after that all left over schwag will be donated.  All new prizes each month will be based on what the sponsor wants to donate.  The 5th month of the 5 month challenge is sponsored by Altra Shoes and Feetures running socks. . 

     If you complete 3 of the 5 monthly challenges during the Fall Challenge you will receive a FREE super cool completely awesome Pulse Running And Fitness Shop Sweatshirt or Pullover.  There is only a $10 fee for each month you want to participate in.

We’re all in this together so let’s stay safe, keep everyone else safe and motivate each other to stay healthy and have some fun!  Even though we’re using Strava to keep track of the activities I’d still love to see your pictures on the Dirty Soles FB page to encourage others to get out there!
