Make Every Day #GivingTuesday for Free

By the use of a free app during your activity, you can have a corporate sponsor donate to a nonprofit.
For example, during my lunch run, Varidesk donated $1.00 to Girls On The Run. 

Charity Miles is a free app that allows an individual to earn money for nonprofits.

As you walk, run, or bike, the app tracks your distance. Bikers earn 10 cents per mile for their charity; walkers and runners earn 25 cents per mile. The money comes from corporate sponsors and the app will run without any problems with all other apps on your phone (including Garmin, MapMyRun, Music, etc).

Cyber Monday is for Runners

I am not one to do much shopping online or in stores as the last thing I or my family needs is more “stuff.” 

Note:  Running Gear is not considered “stuff” and one can never have too many running clothes. 

I did find myself online, however, earlier today, taking advantage of discounted race entry fees and thought I would share:

Thanksgiving Lansing Turkey Trot

Turkey Trot
I kicked off the holiday running season, this morning, with the Lansing Turkey Trot 5K followed by cinnamon rolls, coffee, mimosas, turkey, potatoes, cranberry relish, green bean casserole and a lot of pumpkin pie filling.   
I’m not tired because of the tryptophan.  I’m tired because I overate. 
Here’s to the first day of the holiday running streak:  One day down, 30 more to go.
