June 30th was an amazing day for Mamavation.  Members of the sistahood and Mamavation fans agreed to each run a 5k and then post a sweaty post run picture on Twitter.  In Mamavation fashion, it didn’t matter if you walked, jogged, ran or did something in between.  The only thing that mattered was that you did.

     Throughout the course of the day more than 38 people participated in the 5k from at least two countries.  Some of us ran in the heat, others in rain, and even one in mud.  The thing that kept us tied together was Twitter.  We didn’t just run, we tweeted our hearts out in support of one another.  Our tweets and those of people cheering us on helped to trend #Mamavation5k.  That is an amazing anniversary gift!

       Everyone who completed the Mamavation 5k is a winner in my book, since for many it was their very first 5k.  Alas, there can only be one winner.  The winner was randomly drawn from the list of all who tweeted out their picture, her picture was quite humorous.  Congratulations ResaMichelle!
