This run's for you, America.
Between July 1st and 5th, challenge yourself to run, walk, or fly like an eagle, then upload your 5k results to the leaderboard and see where you rank! Remember, you are doing this for YOU (and America) so what better way than to reward yourself with a pair of Goodr sunglasses!?
While we are still "all in this together", sometimes it's nice to do something just for yourself! You have the option to include the Goodr voucher during registration for a pair of your very own sunglasses that are perfect for runners, cyclists, golfers, beasts, and Bald Eagles or you can just race for your best time...or both...or just go for a leisurely stroll. You have earned it, do what makes you feel best!
You will have 5 days from the start of the race to complete the distance and upload your race data on the registration page. Simply record your run using your favorite run tracking app or GPS watch, snap a screenshot of your completed race and a selfie and upload it to the finishers' gallery.
10% of all profits will go towards Hounds for Heroes Service Dogs for Veterans. Their focus is on healing veterans and their families through programs that incorporate the powerful human-canine bond.
For more race details visit the Stars & Strides Virtual 5k website.
Goodr sunglasses are all polarized, no slip, no bounce sunglasses made because they believe running is fun and your gear should be too! They are all about creating fun, fashionable, functional and affordable sunglasses! They come in a ton of different styles and colors (with fun names) that you can choose from! Your voucher covers the cost of a pair of The OGs or The Circle Gs, plus shipping!

I am a food loving, activity seeking health coach who resides in Franklin, TN with my husband and two sweet dogs (Lola & Penny).
I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
