Advent Running Xmas Challenge 2016

U Advent running began as an online group of crazy running people in December 2015 (at least for me ... stay tuned, now I know we are good kind of crazy). Babeta invited us for a challenge of Advent running that I only followed virtually, even though I knew there were many common events in my hometown of Prague. I had issues with huge blisters on my heels last December, so I often joined with different kind of sport, but tried to stick to the routine of 30 min of activity per day. But then, December 25, the last day of challenge with the last group run came ... and changed my life forever!!!

That's when it all started!!! December 25, 2015

On December 25, I got up early, took Bourbon the dog with me and met with Babeta and her crew for the first time. I stayed little shy and only came back in February for my first regular "run for breakfast". I don't really know how, Babeta motivated me to stick with the group all the way until know when I became CEO = Chief Elf Officer, e.g. right hand of Babeta - CRO = Chief Running Officer (that's the capo di tutti). Little did I know that a year litter my life will be enriched by many new friends and running experiences throughout the year. And especially the one and only Babeta <3

Happy birthday Advent running Czech Republic!

Advent Running Challenge - So what is this about?
  • we run for 25 days in a row
  • every run needs to be at least 30 minutes long
  • you can go as slow or as fast as you want and there is no minimum distance
  • that's it!
