Walking Laps Around Other Truckers: CJ’s St Christopher’s Fund 5K

5K timeI 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!

About CJ Moore

Three years ago my husband and I packed our belongings into a storage unit in Las Vegas, NV and traded our normal, predictable life for a life of unpredictability and long hours as over the road truck drivers. We have been working and living in our big truck 24/7, on the open road, ever since. After working in this industry for some time now, I realized health and fitness awareness were being placed on the back burner. I experienced this first hand in my own life within a few months of living on the road when my poor eating choices, lack of exercise, loss of sleep and sheer exhaustion began to affect my health. It was then that I decided to make some positive changes and now I’m excited to share my experiences, tips and passion for health and fitness with other truckers on a quest to live healthy lives out on the road.
