    Why do I run? When I first started last year it was soley to lose weight. Now it is to relieve stress, get my heart pumping and improve my fitness level, and as an activity my husband and I can do together.

    I’d love to try running the Sporting Life 10k.

    I started running 7 years ago when I moved to the Beaches. I always exercised but I just never ran. I used to see runners running along the boardwalk and one day I thought I would give it a shot. I fell in love with it instantly. I’m a married mom of a 2.5 year old little boy who I push in his jogging stroller when I run. I just love looking at the beach, water and people when I run. When I run, I feel so good about myself. Like I have accomplished something great. When I run, it’s MY time! My chance to do something good for myself.

    I have never run in a formal race. I would love this opportunity to do so. Thank so much for the chance!

    I run because I can. And for those who can’t.

    Why I run….
    I run to stay young
    I run to clear my head
    I run to get outside
    I run for me time
    I run to eat
    I run to be better….and not just a better runner

      Hi Miranda! Thank you so much for your entry, but unfortunately the giveaway closed last week and the winners of the race spots were randomly drawn that day. I hope you keep on running with your dad!
