Why You Should Be Crushing On Charity Miles

Love is in the air!
..and I'm not just talking about Valentine's Day.

This February, Charity Miles (my go-to fitness app alongside Nike+) and Tone It Up have teamed up for the most awesome partnership our iPhones have ever seen. 

Introducing #TIUCharityMiles, a 3 week challenge set up to inspire those participating to run, walk, dance, and skip for an organization of their choosing. Your movement + their app = money donated to a worthy cause. The best part? There's multiple organizations including Special Olympics, Stand Up to Cancer, World Wildlife Fund, Autism Speaks, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and more to pick from every time you open the app. 

Every Mile Matters.

While currently only on Week 2, I have already had a really great experience with this challenge. I chose to use the app towards the Alzheimer's Association in honor of my mother's godfather and for those who have experienced the disease in their family. Even though I couldn't tag them in my Week 1 posts, I was happy to be able to dedicate my miles to them and thought it was amazing that something I am working towards in my own life can benefit others. Preparing to run a 10k (only 9 days until the Disney Princess Enchanted 10k!!) has been a battle in itself, but the added incentive of having my runs support a cause has made every moment even more worth while. 

In just a week and a half I have gone from running a comfortable 3 miles to over 4. Talk about running my heart out for Week 2! 

This challenge has been good for the soul. After recently going through a difficult time, Charity Miles helped me quickly bounce back to my old self, put things in perspective, and remember what's important. I even incorporated the 3 week challenge into my 5 week CHAARGSBFP challenge!

It's all about timing! The fitness gods and Cupid have aligned to make #TIUCharityMiles the ultimate Valentine, and I am crushing hard.

There's still time to participate!
