THERE ARE A NUMBER OF EVENTS IN LATE MARCH & EARLY APRIL that present opportunities for using Earned Runs bibs. Ways in which an exercise session can become part of an annual celebration and a chance to have fun in a unique manner. Solo or with others. Here’s another that’s coming up in less than a week*.
April 1 is the official date for April Fool’s Day, but because it falls on a Sunday in 2018, which happens to be the Easter holiday, Earned Runs is ‘moving it’ to Monday, April 2. No fooling. There’s enough fun and good times to be had on Easter. No need to complicate matters.
Besides, Monday’s are not known as being days infused with intense ambition or high energy. Adding a bit of craziness might be the trick to getting a run, walk, bike, swim, or fitness session completed that might have been skipped.
One of the most wonderful aspects of having Earned Runs bibs to motivate fitness is that self-designed events don’t need to be scheduled weeks or months in advance. You can wake up, on a Monday morning for example, and decide to semi-formally declare your participation in an event, one custom-made to fit your schedule, location, and budget. If it turns out to be memorable or fun, it can be repeated year after year. More planning can be put into the next year’s observation, especially if others are involved, to make it a better fitness or social experience.
Maybe April Fool’s Day will become the kick-off to your spring season each year.

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.
