If you’ve been following our Twitter account @sister_mag recently, you must have noticed a few hashtags we are introducing to our Twitter friends right now. One of it is called #sistermagrun. However I have to explain our idea and notion behind this simple tag! This summer I took on the big “Heidi Klum Summer Run Challenge” – with the launch of Heidi Klum’s new website on AOL her fans and followers were asked to go running or walking every day during the month of July (actually it was about 6 weeks).
While I very much enjoyed the exercise and the thrill of running every single day (I skipped two days) I was not at all convinced of its community aspect and execution. Participating runners were barely mentioned, I never read any feedback or motivational tweet from Heidi Klum or her ‘exercise specialists’. It all revolved around promoting their books/DVDs/clothes/shoes etc.
Hence SISTER Magazine wants to take on the general notion of HKSummerRun but instead of promoting any products, it is supposed to be about YOU! We all know what a motivational draught can feel like. You really want to go running, but especially in these dark winter months cannot find the strength to tie these laces! Think of #sistermagrun as a motivation bootcamp, as a community full of like-minded women who like to exercise, go jogging or walking and keep healthy.
