#JustRunJuly – a 30-day run/walk challenge for runners of any level! (with a prize & discount code!)

I am so excited to announce that I am partnering with the IDEA Health & Fitness Associationย and Bend Active to host a 30-day challenge this July!



This July, I want to encourage you to JUST RUN. No matter what level of runner you are, or if you’re just getting started, anyone can put their feet to the pavement and move. This challenge is sponsored by Bend Active and brought to you by Jessica Gets Fit and IDEA Health & Fitness Association! There will be a prize of a $25 gift card to Bend Active.ย Also, anyone can use the code “JUSTRUNJULY10” for 10% off all merchandise orders at www.bendactive.com.


You are REQUIRED to post in the ChallengeLoop page at least once/week to be entered to win.

The goal here is to challenge yourself. There’s no set time limits or distances – do what’s comfortable for you. If you can only walk, that’s okay! If you can run 10 miles and feel like doing that, that’s amazing! If you can’t run/walk every day, that’s okay too. Just do what you can, but challenge yourself!

I am providing a 30-day calendar for you to track your miles and also includes the photo-a-day prompt for the #JustRunJuly photo challenge! If you have Instagram, share a photo using the daily prompt as your inspiration with the #JustRunJuly hash tag. If you don’t have Instagram, you can post on Twitter, Facebook, in the Facebook group, or even right in the ChallengeLoop page.

I am looking forward to running with you all this month, and for us to challenge ourselves & inspire others!ย For extra support, please also feel free to join the Facebook group by going here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/justrunjuly/
