APRIL 7- This is a PURPLE challenge by Solana Green
Just with how the calendar works out, you won't be doing your first silly run until next Tuesday April 7th. However, for our first challenge, you'll need some time to prepare, so this is perfect.
Throughout the week, using supplies you have at home, you're going to make greeting cards. Take a minute to think through who needs one right now...a running friend you haven't been able to connect with lately, a neighbour who's a nurse, or someone you know that's been self isolating for weeks. To be honest, right now we all could use a little old fashioned pick-me-up.
You can make 1 card, you can make 20 cards, but as important as making your cards is, mapping out a route to deliver them on foot is just as important. If this first week of workouts has you a bit tired, only deliver 2-3 cards and do a 20 minute run. If you're feeling like a super-hero, head on out and deliver 20-30 cards throughout your neighbourhood on a 2 hour jaunt.
If anyone is in North Burnaby (Hastings & Willingdon area), my Grandma, aka Grammy is 95, 96 in July and has been put on house arrest. If you're in the area and would like to deliver a card to her, DM me for her address.
Please wash your hands before and after making cards, don't touch your face during, and to avoid all the nasty normal sweating germs while running, consider placing each card in a ziplock bag for your run.
One last note, this is a casual, enjoyable jog, so please make sure you are able to talk and burst out in spontaneous musical numbers all over your neighhbourhood.
