Fitness Collaborative

Pin It Print Friendly and PDF I love working out with people. Among friends and family, I'm pretty sure I've earned a reputation as a workout freak by begging those around me to workout with me. The only problem: Some people don't want to work out all the time. Go figure. My solution: Get online and find people who do!

This week, I stumbled upon Fitness Collaborative. They're hosting a virtual half marathon between July 15th and August 15th. How awesome? I don't even have to beg people to workout with me - because there's a whole network of people doing it together! Oh-My-Gosh-Like-How-Perfect-Is-That?!?!?!

Okay, you might be thinking "HALF MARATHON? You're off your rocker! Aint no way Imma run 13.1 miles at once." Okay, Fair enough, my friend. Here's my response: "It doesn't matter!" Fitness Collaborative asks you to run a total of at least 13.1 miles by August 15th.  To put it in perspective, if you were to start today, that would be less than half a mile a day...

To make this even better, THERE ARE PRIZES! (Now I've got your attention, eh? Maybe I should have lead with that...) If you finish by August 15th and submit your info by the 18th, you're entered into a random drawing for some awesome fitness and running-related prizes. And get this: your running times don't even matter! It's completely random.

K, so... who's doing it with me?! Leave me a comment and let me know you're in! Or add yourself to this if you're a fellow blogger...


  1. I am so in...running already so I might as well account for it and maybe win some prizes. Put it on my blog and linked your blog too.

  2. I am in because I am always looking for ways to keep my motivated to work out. I think prizes will do the trick.
    I am following you (not like a stalker) and have linked to this post.

  3. I'm in, Workout Buddy! I'm pumped to get started today! WOOHOO! <3 your blog btw :)

  4. It's me again. I promise I'm not a crazed blog stalker LOL

    I ran my HTH Virtual Half last weekend and doing another this weekend! I added my blog post to the linky :)

    I'm hooked on virtual races as fun twist to my marathon training.

  5. I wish I could be in, but to run in the Texas heat...no way! I've run 2 half-marathons for real though, I think you're totally capable of a half! :)

  6. I'm in ... just have to figure out the whole 'entering' thing.

  7. Thanks for your comment on my blog...Love, Love, Love it!!
    Thanks for linking up to Fitness Friday!


  8. I'm in and 3 miles left to go but I can't download the excell sheet. Can I just email you my times and pics?

  9. Hi Carly! Love your blog. I will give this a try although I've never been much of a runner. I'd always like to be one, though!

  10. I'll do it! I love finding people that want to run with me - virtual or otherwise!!

    Found you on the blog hop! Thanks for sharing the 1/2 marathon info!!

  11. This almost feels like cheating since I have already scheduled long runs the next weeks... but I am in!

    (hopping late this week).
