December 5K a Day Winner & Recap

The December 5K a Day Challenge officially ended on Monday, December 31.  We started with 12 daring ladies, including myself.  In the end 3 AMAZING women were able to complete the challenge.  Serious Congrats go out to

Raina @ Small Town Runner
Bobbi @ Zero to 26.2
Kim @ ilaxSTUDIO

You ladies are seriously amazing and inspiring!  But sadly, there can only be one winner.  I really hate that because I think you are all winners......but I can only afford one winner.  So, by virtue of the winner of my first annual December 5K a Day Challenge is.....

Bobbi!!  Congrats Bobbi you have won a $25 Amazon gift card. 

But wait there's more.  There also had to be a week 4 winner.  And you ladies were also the only ones who streaked in week 4.  So the week 4 winner is.....

Raina!!  Congrats Raina you have won these reflective Road ID wrist bands.

Sorry Kim :( but I'm glad that you at least won one of the earlier weekly prizes.  You ladies were amazing during this challenge and really logged some incredible mileage!

In total everyone combined logged an impressive 1191 miles during this challenge!

Thanks to everyone who participated.  I hope it helped keep you motivated and active during December.  I'm thinking maybe I'll do this again next year.  What do you think????  Any ideas for improvement??


  1. Yay!! Thanks for keeping me moving all month!

  2. Yay! Congrats to everyone who participated!!! It was so fun! I definitely think you should do it again next December. And I don't really have any suggestions... it went so well and I really liked the spreadsheet. Maybe for next year we can start talking about it in Nov and have a badge for our blogs to promote it, so you get more participants?

  3. Well done ladies. That's great work!!

  4. Great work!! I would love to do it next year!!

  5. Cool! Glad to win the reflective bracelets :) I did rest on Jan 1. Would have ran, but liked being able to CHOOSE rest. lol. Watched a friend race though..and ran again today.
