Running Recap and April Instagram Challenge

At the beginning of March, I joined FitFluential’s challenge to run/walk 100 miles in March.  And while I kept my schedule of going to the Y a couple of times a week to run, I also purchased a pedometer to keep track of my daily steps.  I never knew exactly how active I was during the day.  It was definitively a surprise to see my daily steps anywhere between 2 and 3 miles!  While I had many blunders with my Sportline pedometer during the challenge, I’m pleased to announce that I reached my goal of 100 miles in March!  Now that the challenge is over, I’m wishing I had a Jawbone or a FitBit to keep better track.


As  I mentioned before, I’d like to participate in some trail races this year and I intend to get serious about my training just as soon as this nagging cough goes away!  Now that the #FFMarchMiles challenge is over, let me introduce a fun April Instagram challenge by the Tampa Bay Bloggers.


All you have to day is take a daily picture following the daily prompts and tag it with #AprilPics and #TBB.  No prizes this time, just a fun way to meet and follow new peeps!


Another fun thing going on in April is the Ultimate Blog Party starting April 4 – 11.  The #UBP14 is sponsored by the wonderful ladies at 5 Minutes for Mom.  This will be my first time participating in Ultimate Blog Party.  Even if you don’t have a blog you can still participate by meeting and visiting new blogs.

Do you have a FitBit or Jawbone? How do you like it?

Do you have an Instagram account? Do you participate in photochallenges?

Hi! I'm Xiomara. My love for strawberries started at a young age. As a child growing up in Puerto Rico, eating strawberries was a special treat. Fast forward to 2007, we packed our home and moved to Plant City, the winter strawberry capital of the world.
