The ING Class of 2012 (check out their awesome Facebook page which is full of stories, videos, facts, and inspiration for runners) is doing "Orange-up" to support the 47,000 runners expected to run the ING NYC Marathon this year, and to support the ING Run for Something Better Campaign. The Run for Something Better Campaign fights childhood obesity and encourages kids to get active. I love that! From their website - "ING Run For Something Better is helping kids learn that exercise is fun and rewarding. Through our free school-based running fitness programs, ING Run For Something Better challenges children to get active, set goals and start a lifetime habit of physical activity. Each program is capped off with a fun running event involving the school or even the larger community."
So how do you play along? Easy! Put on some orange - a little, or a lot - the more the better. Then take a picture of yourself (or your kids or your dog or whoever gets oranged-up!) and post it on your blog, your Facebook page, the ING Runner's Nation Facebook page, or on Twitter using the hashtag #orange-up.
If you participate in the Orange-up program and post a picture somewhere, leave a comment below and tell me where you posted your picture (and leave a link if you can!) and you will be entered to win a pair of orange ING NYC Marathon sunglasses, a pair of ING orange laces, and a fun surprise souvenir or two from my trip to NYC to run the ING NYC Marathon. I will pick a winner when I get home from NYC.
Here are some pics of some of my most favorite people "oranged-up!" :)
|My big girls!!|
|orange never looked so cool :)|
|Nate and Ry are digging the orange (and they fought over my orange shoe laces!)|
|Does it get any cuter than Noah in orange? I cannot believe I got him to leave these on long enough for a picture. :)|
|Josh and I, oranged up!|
|3 pairs of glasses and shoelaces as earrings. Shane is oranged.|
|And, she wasn't thrilled with me but even Penny got in on the orange action. She may be a Boston Terrier, but she is all NY. :)|
Your turn! Put on some orange, take a pic, post it (on your blog, your Facebook page, the ING Runner's Nation Facebook page, or on Twitter using the hashtag #orange-up), and leave a comment here by Sunday, November 4 and I will pick a winner of my "orange-up" NYC Marathon prize pack by November 7.
