Running in the dark with lights!

Good morning RYPEness!

Doesn’t that subject line sound fun?? I thought so….so much so that I veered away from our scheduled topic of swimming and cycling to talk about a 5K that’s coming to Charlotte. I am soooooooooo excited about the Electric Run!!  What is it you ask? The “Electric Run™ is a 5k run, a show, participation art, and celebration of life. Incredibly talented artists and lighting technicians with experience creating beautiful art and light at Coachella, Dreamworks Animations, Disney, and some of Vegas’ hottest shows have come together to create  a world that will fill you with wonder.” Now doesn’t that just sound amazing? And doesn’t that just make you want to do it?

Electric Run

There are a plethora of cool races, be them 5K, triathlon or cycling events that are popping up all over. The infamous Spartan Race, Tough Mudder and other run/obstacle course races have also made wanting to get in shape a fun challenge and a social event. It’s this combination that keeps us motivated to stay on course. If you have a group of friends that have all signed up for a cool even in your area, it allows you to keep each other in check about maintaining a consistent workout schedule (teammate accountability). Also, you look forward to the workouts because you know you are going to get a laugh, a juicy piece of gossip or the opportunity to be a listening ear for one of your girls.

So….I challenge you to find an upcoming race in your area. As a matter of fact, check the link above and see if the Electric Run is coming to your area. THEN….get just five of your friends to sign up with you.  I betcha each of you will talk about what a great idea and life changing event it was. And that road to living a healthy lifestyle will be smoooooooooth sailing.

What say you? And who here in the Charlotte, NC area is down with the RYPE Team?
