Turkey Trot 5k and the 100 mile Challenge!

Today is November 1!  So what does that mean?  Well, it means that yesterday, the kids (and I) pigged out on some late night candy.  It also means that today is day 1 of the Slap Dash Mom 100 Mile Challenge (yes, yes, there is a prize involved)!

It just so happens, that this month, right here in St. Louis, MO, there will be a super affordable 5k; the Twilight Turkey Trot.  The timing couldn't be better, right before Thanksgiving!  If you sign up for this 5k through LivingSocial, the cost is only $15 (50% savings!), or $29 for 2 people.  PLUS......(you're going to like this) through November 4, use coupon code FALLBACK5 and get $5 off of your registration!

Here's the details (taken from Slap Dash Mom's blog):

The Challenge

The challenge is simple! Complete 100 miles in November. That’s a little over 3 miles each day. The goal is to push yourself. If 100 miles will be too easy, do 125.. do 150.. but you will complete the challenge as long as you log 100. You CAN do 100. I have faith in you.

How You Can Complete it

You can complete your 100 miles in many ways! Walk, jog, run, crawl, swim, bike, skip, hop… you name it, you can do it. If you don’t have a pedometer, you can get one from Walmart for $5. If you don’t have $5 to get the pedometer, drive your car a mile up the road. You now have your mile marker. Drive it another mile. That’s your two mile marker. If you walk there AND back, that’s 4 miles.
