Raising Money For BLM By Running

Hey guys this week I have been motivated by something that I saw on my Instagram feed and they were going to donate 1$ for every mile that was run this week (will leave their information below). The funds were going to go to helping the people in Chicago that were being arrested for protesting for what they believe in. Since I was running already I decided that there was no reason for me not to participate in this. So I decided to try and run 30miles/48km by the end of this week.

So far with today’s run I am at a solid 26km.

Tuesday – 5.03km – 4.55min/km

Wednesday – 5.08 km – 5.08min/km

Thursday – 6.01km – 5.28min/km + 10.01km – 5.54min/km

I am actually very happy that I was even able to put in that many km today. This was also the first time I completed 10km since I took the month off. It was pretty painful for the last 3 km but luckily I had a friend running with me to help keep me motivated and push through the pain. Something that came to mind while doing this was:

I only have to be in pain for a little bit which is nothing compared to the pain that people have been facing for centuries.

So how join in on this?

Go to their page on instagram type : runwiththewinners

DM them with your runs for the week and boom you’ve helped out in a small way that will sum up to something big.

As always thank you for reading and I hope everyone will participate in this great initiative. Happy running everyone!

Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
