Fitcation at Home: Let’s Run (or Walk) a 5K!

Fitcation at Home

This week, 30 members of the Mamavation and Bookieboo communities will be gathering together in Paso Robles, California for an amazing girlfriend getaway (with workouts!) in San Luis Obispo County wine country. It will be an amazing time had by all, but because there were limited spots, it is far away from some of us, and we had other events scheduled, not everyone is able to attend. But that doesn’t mean that the rest of us are going to miss out on all the fun! In addition to watching the amazing time that the women are having in wine country on the #Fitcation13 hashtag, we are also going to have a lively and entertaining at home participation conference for those of us who were unable to attend this year! To follow along with our activities, just watch the #fitcationathome hashtag!

The first event that we are announcing for Fitcation at Home is really our favorite way to celebrate anything in Mamavation. We do it when we have a successful bootcamp completion, or an awesome sponsored campaign completion – heck, we even do it just for funsies! So Fitcation at Home must, Must, MUST receive the same treatment! We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting a Mamavation 5K for Fitcation at Home!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join in?

It’s simple really. You don’t need to meet us anywhere. It’s virtual, so we will all be walking together in our own communities, but chatting about it online. All you have to do is go to MAP MY RUN and calculate a 5K in your own neighborhood and run/walk it between October 10th and October 12th with us.

When is it?

Thursday October 10th, Friday October 11th, or Saturday October 12th – pick your favorite!

What time should I start?

It doesn’t really matter, but most of our girls do it in the morning and mid afternoon.

Who should I do it with?

You can do it by yourself, with your family, with some friends, etc. We just want YOU doing it.

What if I can’t run?

No worries. We also are encouraging walkers. It’s really just an excuse for you to get moving.
