Got another run in today- 4.2 in under 48 minutes. This run felt pretty good, I used a Gu because it’s been a while since I ate and ran and figured I needed to give it a whirl again before next week.
I am aiming for 10 on Saturday, which is totally easy and doable. Otherwise not much new to report. I owe a post about my new shoes- I’ll get to it first thing tomorrow.
Just another freezing day in Chicago. I cannot wait for a weekend in LA!

The app that let’s you run (or bike) for charity!

Charity Miles is an app I found out about around a month ago, and now I don’t just run, I philanthropically run. Oh yeah, I said that.

Charity Miles donates: 

  • 25 cents for every mile you run
  • 10 cents for every mile you bike

All this goes to a charity of your choice. It’s a great way to donate to a meaningful cause while simultaneously getting a good workout. Like, this is so easy guys. Let’s say you run on average 20 miles total a week well then BOOM KANANI $5 was just donated to your fav charity and all you did was do the workout you were going to do anyway.

If you are into fitness, download the app and spread the word! Get your ass out there and go running (or cycling, whatever tickles your peach).
