April 3rd is the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day 2013. In support of this, I am launching a Journeyfoot Challenge. Those who complete the challenge will be entered into a drawing for one pair of amazing socks to reward your hardworking feet: Thorlo Unisex WMM Walking socks. So what’s the challenge, you say?All you gotta do is follow these three easy steps:
1. MAKE A PERSONAL WALKING PLEDGE
In the comments section below, write down a personal walking pledge to honor on Wednesday, April 3rd AND your reason for choosing your pledge. There are two goals for your pledge: To walk and to challenge yourself. If you never walk, maybe you pledge to walk for ten minutes. If you’re a daily walker, pledge to tack on some additional miles to your existing routine. Get creative!
Example: On April 3rd, I pledge to walk five laps around the baseball field while my son has practice because normally I sit in the stands and read the latest journeyfoot posts.
- Walk to work instead of driving your car or taking the bus
- Walk for x minutes or for x distance
- Walk your kids to the bus stop instead of driving
- Take a walk with a co-worker during your lunch break
- Hike that trail you’ve been meaning to hike
- Summit a peak
- Take a romantic evening stroll with your special one
- Speed walk around the local mall
Whatever you choose as your walking challenge, be realistic. Make sure it’s something you will be able to commit to for April 3rd. In other words, don’t pledge something you know you aren’t going to do. On the flip side, make sure to challenge yourself!
2. FULFILL YOUR PERSONAL WALKING PLEDGE ON APRIL 3rd
This is very self-explanatory.
3. TELL JOURNEYFOOT ABOUT YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENT
Return to journeyfoot.com and reply to your original comment to let me know you completed your mission. In order to be included in the drawing for a pair of the greatest socks ever, be sure to do this no later than 6PM Pacific Standard Time on Thursday, April 4th. This is the honor system so please, if you didn’t fulfill your pledge, then don’t say you did or karma will get you.
WINNER WILL BE NOTIFIED VIA EMAIL ON MONDAY, APRIL 8, 2013!
Oh, and if you want to add one more step while you’re at it… Follow Journeyfoot via email by entering your email address in the top right corner 😉
Small Print: While people from around the world are encouraged to participate, socks will only be shipped to US and Canadian addresses.
Let’s go get our walk on!
