The 3-Miles-A-Day-For-30-Days Challenge

I shared recently that the holiday season can be tough for me. Like many people, the holidays bring up bad memories, feelings of sadness and a lot of times, conflict. I shared that I’d likely take on a special challenge to fuel me through it all and I have—a 3 miles a day challenge for 30 days.

I’d like to invite all of you to join me using the hashtag #HR3for30. So what are the rules? It’s pretty simple, actually. Commit to running (or run/walking, walking) 3 miles a day for 30 days. The goal is not to go out there and run your fastest every day—but rather use the miles as a point of meditation.

As a Project Start ambassador, I’ve had the opportunity to connect with lots of women about how to get started. There are so many obstacles and excuses to getting started, but one that I find often comes up is that women literally do not know how to start. If that’s you, take on this challenge with me! If 3 miles is too much, make it a one mile a day for 30 days. Trust me—that’s enough.

Don’t worry about your form right now or what gear you should be wearing, just know that you are getting your body moving; that’s what matters.

On Thanksgiving morning, I was able to share some miles with my mother and boyfriend in Florida and it put a positive spin on the day.

I hope you’ll join me on this challenge and share your moments of joy (and pain) along the way!

Powdered Feet

Passionate about community, mental health and fitness, I am an endurance athlete, Under Armour athlete and believer that sport has the power to change lives. My nickname “powdered feet” comes from the Haitian Kreyol saying, which describes a person so active that you never see them, just the footprints of where they’ve been in powder. I started running after a period of depression, and, over the past 4 years, have been able to Find Meaning on the Run. My running journey started with a blog, powderedfeet.com, and eventually expanded into a transformative movement known as Harlem Run. When I’m not running, I’m working to resolve and speaking passionately about issues related to women and girls. Find meaning on the run with me at @powderedfeet on Instagram and Twitter!
