2021 Fitness Goal Challenge
Want to be FITTER or FASTER or STRONGER in 2021? Or maybe most importantly, have even more FUN with your running and walking?
Share with us which of the above you want to focus on in 2021 along with a couple specific things you want to incorporate into your fitness routine to successfully reach your goal. (Please share with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.)
We’ll check in with you at the end of the year to see how it went. If you worked toward your goal, we’ll reward you with a little congratulatory surprise.
And we’ll give away THREE pairs of shoes!
Just for sharing a goal, you’ll be in the drawing for a store gift certificate for a free pair of shoes – you get to choose your favorite brand!
Two pairs of shoes be given away at the end of the challenge to two randomly selected participants who made a good effort at following through with their plans.
What do I do again?
Just email us at email@example.com and tell us “I want to be fitter”, “I want to be stronger”, “I want to be faster” or “I want to have more fun” and give us a couple specific things you plan on incorporating into your fitness routine to successfully reach your goal.
