AS YOU MAP OUT YOUR RUNNING AND FITNESS PLANS FOR THE UPCOMING YEAR remember that Earned Runs BIBS can help you commit to and stick with a training program. BIBS aren't just for racing. Last year I used them to tally summer running streak days and the completed segments of the virtual trip 'RUN/WALK ACROSS AMERICA'. The front and back of the bibs can be used to record daily or weekly training assignments that have been completed.
Simply click here to be taken to the REQUEST BIBS/CONTACT page.
You will recieve 4 bibs to use for your own purposes or share. Friends can submit requests and each receive all 4 bibs for their own personal use. The HOME PAGE has some suggestions on how the bibs might be used as an individual or with others. The FAQ page has more information that may help you understand the reasons behind the EARNED RUNS emphasis on competition:
"Why does EARNED RUNS™ think competing is so great? I like plain walking or running for pleasure!
A: Competition elevates running or walking to a higher level; it becomes your SPORT rather than merely a healthy activity. It adds purpose and even excitement to everyday exercise routines. Deciding to compete increases your commitment to running or walking; you must train to perform better and avoid injury. The run or walk you took only when you felt like it becomes a scheduled effort in your training plan, on which all subsequent efforts depend. If you are to successfully cover a longer distance or finish a distance in a shorter time, this INVESTMENT in yourself is necessary. Training and competing can help you become not only faster, but physically and mentally stronger. Identifying, training for, and finishing several to multiple goal races, events, or challenges throughout the year allows runners to experience personal accomplishment frequently, which builds confidence."

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
