I just downloaded the Map My Walk App and completed my virtual 5K to help support the St Christopher’s Fund. This is a great cause and you can complete it anywhere that you are. We had a short run today and shut down early, the weather in southern California was pretty perfect so I downloaded the app and utilized the Lowe’s parking lot. So you really have no excuses not to participate!
The St Christopher’s Fund is a charity that helps truck drivers whose medical problems have led to financial hardship by helping pay for expenses like bills and prescriptions. If you want more details on the fund or are interested in participating, go to http://www.thehealthytrucker.net/st-christophers-fund-virtual-5k/.
I also highly recommend downloading either the Map My Walk or Map My Run app to your smartphone. It is a great way to track your progress and connect with others via social media. The app shows you your distance, time, calories burned and more.On a personal note, I’m pretty proud of myself for completing this. The last time I entered and was able to complete a 5K was about 7 years ago and it was really hard. This time, I’m in much better shape and it was a whole lot easier, so personal triumph for me while helping a good cause…win win!
