5 Reasons I Race

1. Bling – Admit it, you love, love, love the bling!

2.   The sense of accomplishment finishing a race gives you.   Be it a 5K, 10k, Half or Full Marathon.   Crossing the finish line is always an amazing accomplishment.


3.   Friends – Running a race is great in  and of itself, but running it with friends is even better!


4.  Tutu’s – Need I say more:)

5.   Supportive Family – My Mom, sister, and family friend surprised me at the end of the Philly Marathon.   It added to the amazement of the experience.  I think my Mom was more excited about me crossing the finish line than I was (and I was pretty happy!).


Running can take you places you never imagined.

Where has your running taken you?
