INTRODUCING THE BLOG JOG!
The powers-that-be here at Better Off Red have been working behind the scenes with many of your other favorite Reds bloggers on an idea to have fans who enjoy reading our Reds blogs, to participate in running the annual Redlegs Run 5K on June 11.
We’re calling it the Blog Jog and you’re all invited to partake with us!
This will be a special “event within an event” designed for you to meet your fellow online Reds fans, mingle with your favorite Reds bloggers, and most importantly - to have fun!
And although the Blog Jog is 100% endorsed by the BOR Fit Club, we’re not going to try to set any Redlegs Run speed records. Some of us will be running, some of us will be jogging but most of us will be walking the 5K.
Participants are encouraged to make t-shirts and/or signs to represent their favorite Reds blog(s), wear costumes, crazy outfits, etc.
Blog Jog attendees will be invited to a pre-race gathering at the ballpark, where we will award prizes for best signs, shirts, and costumes/outfits. We’ll take tons of photos and try to drum up some other perks, as well. We are also going to work on a post-race gathering place off-site for our group.
If you’re interested in being part of this inaugural event, log onto reds.com/5k to sign up! After registering for the Redlegs Run, you will be asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you’ll be taking part in the Blog Jog (just so we know how many participants to expect). There is no extra fee to be a part of the Blog Jog.
So come out and join us on June 11! It’ll be fun!
Some of the other local Reds bloggers who’ll be participating include: Red Reporter, Chris Sabo’s Goggles, Redleg Nation, Mo Egger, OMG Reds, Red Hot Mama, Blog Red Machine, Reds Country and more! (I’m still working on Fay and Sheldon).
