Fitness Friday-Apps and Virtual Races

Today I am going to tell you a couple of tips to keep you motivated and hopefully help you keep the fire burning.

First-Do you have an app to track your running, walking, exercising?  I use Nike Plus app.  It tracks my mileage, time, how I feel, where I run, and I can even add friends.  I have also used Endomondo and it works good too.  But there are so many to choose from, find one that works for you.

Another app I use is MyFitnessPal.  It is a great way to keep track of everything, a fitness diary per say.  You can track your food, exercise, and even your water.  You can also add friends on this app and motivate each other.
Second-Have you ever tried a virtual run?  A virtual run is held online but you do it wherever you want.  I recently did my 1st virtual run...

I found it online at  It was fun.  My son joined me and we ran a 5K in our neighborhood.

This week I am doing my 2nd virtual race...
I found this one at  You still have time to participate, it starts 03/15-03/22.  There you can find out more information about #13in2013.
There are many everywhere that are working hard at fitness just like you and me.  Let us help each other.  I will cheer you on every step of the way!!  YOU GO GIRL or Boy!!
