Running a 5K, Mud Runs, and other Fitness Challenges

  • Now that I am no longer pregnant, I want to get in better shape so that I can keep up with my kids. I would like to run in one of those fun 5K runs like the Color Run or a Mud Run. Have you done any of those? What fitness challenges have you done? -- Bonnie, Strongmoms Facilitator

  • I've always wanted to do one of those too! There is one near me that is a Mud Run/Soap Suds run...first you get dirty and then clean up with soapy suds! It benefits clean water around the world, so it's a great cause as well as a fun run! 

  • I have done the Color Run and it was a blast! I also have done the Beachbody Challenge.  I did it a while back before my wedding and I lost a good amount of weight.  Its a fitness and nutritional program that is 30 days long.  I will probably do it again once my baby turns a year old.

  • Oh that sounds like a fun challenge...I may have to look into that! Thanks!
