I am really excited about the next challenge. In fact, I am so excited that I am going to tell you all right now and work out the sponsors later.
Roni is one of my blogging heroes. Not only has she lost over 70 pounds, but what she has done for the blogging community is amazing. She has a blog dedicated to help other bloggers.
She created Fitbloggin. She does recipes and always takes pride in spending time with her son.
She also always runs. 2 miles, 4 miles, 8 miles!!!! I love looking at her running charts. It makes me a little jealous.
When someone else does something that I am not good at, it impresses me even more.
I am not a runner, but when I look how at how much passion she puts into it, I get tempted to do the C25K training.
I do remember starting out in weight loss. I remember hoping on that treadmill and being so proud that I walked a half a mile, then a mile.
There is something so empowering about walking.
When I was so overweight, that privilege was stripped from me. I remember going to Disneyworld with my wife and having to sit down every two minutes because of my back.
I remember not being able to walk my dog because my back hurt so much.
That is why I want to do something.
On Sunday May 23th, I want everyone to participate in the first virtual “RoniTony 5K for Kids”.
It is easy to participate, just commit to walking a 5K wherever you are. Whether it is at work, on a treadmill, in place, etc.
It can be hard to sign up for a 5K, but this one is very easy.
I will put up a Paypal account on my blog to accept donations for Action For Healthy Kids.
There is no fee to sign up for this 5K, but it would be great if you made a donation to a worthy cause that day.
I am letting people know about this early. I am sure I will have contests for it. I think it is a fun idea.
I am honored to walk a 5K with all of my weight loss healthy friends.
Can you commit to walking a 5K that day?
