About Me

Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

It's time to work that bootie!

Hey friends...it's almost time for the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge!!! Every year, Amanda at Run to the Finish hosts the HBBC as a way to encourage and motivate each other during the tough holiday season.  Why wait until January to start working on a new and better you...start today!
Here are the details of the challenge.  If you are interested in participating, please use my name (Whitney Sutherland) for the referral.  This will be my 3rd year participating and I can't wait to get back to tracking my fitness and nutrition points.  It really does encourage me to get in my fruits and veggies each day and to drink plenty of water.  Those are the easy points!

When: November 19 - January 5
What: Earn points for being active and eating healthy for a chance to win prizes
Why: Share and motivate with other fitness enthusiasts during the difficult holiday season when we all work super hard to avoid holiday weight gain!

Here's how it works:
You register to participate for $25.  The funds go to cover prizes...yep there are prizes! Prizes are given out randomly each week based on being current with your point tracking and there are also prizes for the overall winner in each category at the conclusion of the challenge. 

You choose a group based on your level of fitness activity.  This helps even out the playing field since longer distance training will automatically score more points. 

Each week you track your points.  Amanda will send you the link to the challenge tracking form.  Each week you go into the spreadsheet and complete your points information.  IT's easy to track your points:
1 Point per mile (run/walk)
1 Point per 3 miles biked
1 Point per 20 minutes of Pilates, yoga, stretching or core
1 Point per 15 minutes of low impact cardio or weights (i.e. low impact aerobics, easy biking, skiing, skating, water aerobics, snow shoeing)
1 Point per 10 minutes of high impact cardio (i.e.spinning, kickboxing, lap swimming)
1 Per day where you reach a minimum of 7 servings of fruits and veggies (here are details on what is a serving)

New this year is the Facebook group which will offer a place for challenge participants to gather and share motivation tips and tricks as well as interact with sports experts including my favorite runner Deena Kastor!
What are you waiting for...sign up today! Here's the link and remember to list my name for the referral!
