I am sharing this from our Jade Dragon team since I am very excited to participate in it!
As many of you know we are 'ghosting' our fellow Dragons this weekend. You see, there are a few Dragons that are participating in a big race this weekend in Miami Fl. To show our support & share a bit of their excitment & struggles, there are a few of us who are going to try to match some strides with them.
It just so happens that the BLC15 24/7 GYM is having a 'race' for everyone to run/walk/jog a distance if they would like over the weekend. Since our team is ghosting fellow Dragons, we decided to report our total together as a team to the BLC gym.
We are doing this to support our Dragons in the ING MIAMI this sunday.
Current Dragons - Christy, John and Suezette
Past Dragons - John, Gail, Tammy and Beth.
Put it all together & all over the WORLD our DRAGON Brothers & Sisters are doing the following:
Christy - Half marathon
Jopa - Half Marathon
Suezette - Half Marathon
Mike - Half Marathon
JoAnn - 10k
Nan - Marathon - Awesome
Penny - 20k
Terri - 15k
Jackie - 16 mile
Liz - Half Marathon
Frank - 5K
Madhu - 5k
Candis - 10k
Ania - 5k
Kate - 10k
Molly - Half Marathon
I've walked/jogged off & on in our local hills and on my treadmill. The most I've done at one time is 5miles, so this will be a bit of a challenge for me. My average is a 15min/mile including warm-up & cool-downs. I tell ya, I may get addicted to this stuff as my heart-rate improves & I notice that instead of pushing myself to continue to jog through the end of a particular song, I am now trying to find another similar paced song to keep going!
Thank you BLC for introducing me to the JADE DRAGONS! Love you guys!!!
Anyone else care to come join us?
