WalkJogRun’s 34-day holiday Instagram challenge

WalkJogRun 34-day Instagram holiday challenge

Holiday weight gain and holiday stress are no joke. The solution to taming both? Exercise.

But we know that’s MUCH easier said than done during this time of year so we’ve decided to step up our game with a 34-day Instagram challenge.

Every day – from the day after (American) Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve (Nov. 28-Dec. 31) – we challenge you to walk, jog, or run for at least 20 minutes, snap a photo, and upload it to Instagram with the tag #WJRholidaychallenge. 

What kind of pictures are we talking about?

Anything from your run! All too often we don’t appreciate the beauty that is right in front of us – especially this time of year – so in addition to helping relieve stress and preventing extra pounds, this challenge intends to help you savor this holiday season to the fullest. Notice what’s all around you from the quiet snow-filled mornings to the neighbor’s overly decorated house to the Christmas tree in the town center.

After all, ‘Tis the season to be merry so walk, jog, run your way to that merriness.

Who’s with us?!
