Inktober 2021

Claire Wee has inspired me to take on #Inktober this year.  I'll be following the illustration suggestions by @FurryLittlePeach .  My approach to this is that I'll be using a Hp Tilt Pen on my touch screen Hp Spectre to create black line illustrations. These illustrations are made available on in a Google Drive file so that others can download use them as colouring in sheets or add their own creative touches, making it a collaborative experience. 

The Iconic Sport Challenge 2020 #TheIconicSportChallenge

The Iconic Sport Challenge 2020

The Iconic Sport Challenge is back! Last year I took part in the challenge where I won some awesome prizes (Running Bare gift voucher, sports bag, sports drinks bottle and more) I also had a lot of fun taking part in it. I'm certainly more a water based athlete but the challenge always inspires me to run and walk more often than I regularly would, taking me out of my comfort zone.

You've possibly forgotten about your New Year's fitness based resolutions now that we're in March, summer has just finished, and there are other things taking up your time like study and work. This is why I want to spread the word about this challenge, because who isn't motivated by winning stuff? By spending as little as 20min a day either running walking, swimming and being active you have a chance to win vouchers for brands like Nike, Puma, Under Armour and Oakley, just to name a few.

It's really easy to get started, you simply create your account, connect your app or watch and sync to record your activity, I connected my Garmin watch to my account to track my activities. Once you are all set up select one of the 22 challenges and complete the exercise goal required for that challenge, for example so far I've completed the following challenges:
  • Reebok Challenge - 30min of cardio  
  • Running Bare Challenge - 2 x 30min workouts
  • Puma - 60min workout
Once you complete each activity, return to the official app to sync it with your account. Once you've completed the challenge you'll be able to see if you're a winner and then you can select another challenge!

You can complete each challenge as many times as you like to increase your chances of winning prizes.

How To Take Part: 

  • To join the challenge, all you have to do is download THE ICONIC SPORT Challenge app and sync it up with your go-to fitness tracking app. From there, you can start racking up the points every time you take part in over 30 activities. These activities include yoga, surfing, running, swimming and hiking, so you can join in no matter your sporting preference.
  • For every challenge you complete, you will automatically be entered into the prize draw. You'll also have the chance to unlock discounts on new workout gear, so you can look good while you're sweating it out.
  • There is over $150,000 worth of prizes to be won across 22 different challenges, which means that you actually have a pretty good chance of snapping something up.
