My Birthday Challenge

Taking a page from #JeffsBirthdayChallenge, I’m going to have the first annual #DonnasBirthdayChallenge beginning in 2021! After all of the craziness that was 2020, I’d like to do something fun and different for my birthday this year but it will be a bit different from Jeff’s post. So what is a birthday challenge you ask, or more specifically, what is Donna’s Birthday Challenge?

I invite all of you, whether you run, walk, hike, bike, practice yoga, swim, dance, or however else you choose to move your body to get moving for your choice of one of the following: 2 miles/km, 4 miles/km, 24 miles/km, or 72 minutes (sure go ahead and do 72 miles/km if you want to really celebrate!). What’s the significance behind all of the numbers? I was born on the 24th of February in the year 1972. If you’re doing the math, yes, this is the last year in the 40’s age group for me.

Let’s celebrate the entire week of my birthday, so that means you can do your movement of choice any day from February 21 through February 27 (Sunday-Sunday). Then the best part comes- CAKE! Have a piece of your favorite kind of cake and share it with me on Instagram and let me know how you moved your body and for how long. Fun, right?

I can’t wait to hear how all of you helped me celebrate!

Happy birthday to me!

I'm a long distance runner with a goal of running a half marathon in all 50 states in the US. I also love to travel so I travel to other places when I'm not running races. Half the fun is planning where I'm going to go next!

  1. Happy Birthday tomorrow, Donna! Runners are the only people who look forward to “aging up”. πŸ™‚ I am going to do your challenge tomorrow, I promise. I am not on Instagram, though and I don’t eat cake. You will just have to take my word for it!
