I RUN TO.... relieve stress, to think, to cope, to mourn, to celebrate, to clear my head, to unwind, to check in, to check out, to learn, to challenge myself, to stay sane, to be happy, to be healthy, to set an example for my kids, to set an example for my high school athletes, to connect, to reconnect, to strengthen bonds, to discover, to explore, to give back, to inspire, to be inspired, to defy age, to break boundaries, to set new ones, to rock out, to be a better mom, coach and friend.....TO LIVE.

******* RWM GRD GIVEAWAY ********

Global Running Day is a day for people around the world to celebrate the joys of running, share our passion for the sport and encourage runners of all levels to get moving.  Today I'm celebrating GRD with Nathan Sports, Skechers Performance and Jaybird Sport.  All of these companies support and encourage runners of all levels to get out there and be their best.  They also make products that enhance your overall running experience.  Which is why I'm partnering with them and sharing the love with you.  If you run, then you're a runner no matter why you go, how far or how fast.  So, hit the road.  And then enter the giveaway.  In whatever order works for you.  Happy trails!
