5th Annual Healthy Heart Weekend 02/13 – 02/15

 It’s that time again!  The 5th Annual Healthy Heart  is coming up!   Can you believe we have been doing this for 5 years?? hhweek
If you want to see some of the previous years’ results, click hereclick here, click here or click here
Here’s how it works: During  the weekend of February 13-15, do some kind of activity on 1 of the 3 days of Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.  You don’t have to have a blog in order to join, either.

This weekend is all just about getting moving. If you want to walk, that’s fine. Elliptical bunny? Knock yourself out! Take a long bike ride? Go for it! Play date with the family? Have a blast!  Slinging the barbell around counts, too :D   The only stipulation is that you need to take a picture of yourself before, during or after your event and send it to me. I will post the pictures in a wrap up post. Get creative, too! You don’t have to have your face in the photo if you don’t want to, so have fun with it!

Date:  February 13th, 14th and 15th! Feel free to chose Friday, Saturday, or Sunday to complete your event.

Activity: Your choice!

Distance/Duration: Your choice. I know many of you are training for an event, so you can use whatever distance fits in with your training plan. It’s all about a healthy heart, not a specific distance or time.

After you complete your event, please email me the photo and what you did at javaqueen01 (at) yahoo.com .

Please post below if you would like to participate and what you plan to do! Feel free to post about it on your blog if you have one and see how many people we can get to participate! You may grab the logo above and link as well. 

I will be giving away some prizes, too.   There will be at least a jar of locally made peanut butter, a large jar of stevia (which seems like a lifetime supply) and I am going to do another prize or two. I will update this post as we go along with the prizes. And since I am hosting – anyone in the world is eligible for the prize drawings!

It’s actually really fun doing a virtual event.  I loved getting in the emails all weekend with photos and what people did. Let’s get a lot of people involved this year!

So sign up below if want want to join in! I’ll be bugging reminding you on the blog over the next couple weeks, too, so you don’t forget.

Be Sociable, Share!

    I will be riding the bike trainer and if the weather is nice enough (and the streets are clear) I will also be walking outside!

    Yay!! Count me in! I will be running. I’ll post about this on my blog this week and share with local friends too. We’ll see if more people join. 🙂 I love the idea!

    Depending on the weather, I’ll either walk a 5k or ride 12 miles on the stationary bike. I’m hoping for nice weather!

    Fun – not sure why I didn’t do this last year – I’m looking forward to this (and happy that you are going to be reminding us).

    Can hardly believe its been five years! This year, if its warm enough, I will challenge myself to do a long distance walk in the pool. Thanks for doing this Lori.

    I’m in too – love this! Can you pretty please with sugar on top make your roasted coffee a prize?! I think I drank that coffee up in less than a week – so good!

    We’ll be visiting friends in Idaho that weekend, and I’ve been looking forward to running on the path behind their house that borders on a nice waterway. Count me in!

    I will walk, outside if the weather co-operates; on the treadmill if that seems like a better choice that day.

    Training for a duathlon (5k, 20 mile bike, 2 mile run) at the end of April and I have a winter 5k run event, so complete the run, then to the gym for a bike ride & run.

    I’ll be walking! My plan is 45 minutes on the treadmill and a yoga class on Saturday and a 4 mile walk on Sunday. A very low wind chill might mean that the 4 miles on Sunday is on the treadmill as well, or maybe I will just bundle up.
