Run a Marathon at Your Own Pace During the Month of May
Murrieta—March 15, 2012— Have you always wanted to run a 26.2-mile marathon but did not have the time to train or thought that was a race just for true athletes? Well, now people can say they ran a marathon without having to run all 26.2 miles in one day!
Joggermom.com is launching it's 2nd virtual marathon that takes place at one’s pace and begins on May 1 and ends May 31, giving moms a full month to complete the marathon. There is no cost to enter and participants will have an opportunity to win one of 5 jogging strollers (like a 2012 BOB Revolution or a 2012 Mountain Buggy Terrain), fitness apparel, fitness books and other prizes totaling well over $2,000.
“The concept of the virtual marathon is to give moms the opportunity to complete a marathon at their own pace and feel great about themselves. Our innaugural Joggermom Marathon was put together just days after my own mother suffered a stroke." said Kelly Morse, founder of Joggermom.com. "Thankfully she is ok but, knowing that heart disease does run in our family I wanted to do something to help others now. As a mother it is important that you take care of yourself. One of the best ways is by exercising. We all need it". This year the Joggermom Marathon will give a portion of it's proceeds to the American Heart Association.
This year the Joggermom Marathon is opening up registration to children and men. This way it can be a family event. Children need to see their parents being active too!
The Joggermom Marathon is not about who finishes first with the fastest time. It’s about finishing what one starts and it’s easy to enter. Log on to Joggermom.com for complete rules and regulations and start running or walking.
