National Running Day & Donate to Team Boomer!

Hey all, just popping in for a quickie to say happy NATIONAL RUNNING DAY!

I started the day with a sunrise track workout, sometimes you just need to push back on life twice as hard as it's pushing you. Remember, Life's Hard Run Harder! Some days I feel like I take this simple thing of putting one foot in front of the other for granted. Running has changed my life in more ways than I could ever describe. So to all my runner friends, thanks for being a part of this fabulous community. I wish I could send you all a NRD Valentine or something (think Hallmark has one?).

What I really wanna let everyone know about though, is the awesome thing that Timex sports (@timexsports) is doing for today. I'm sure you have all seen the hashtag #IMARUNNER, I've used it and millions of others have as well.

Today Timex will donate $5 EVERY.SINGLE.TIME that hastag is used (up to $20k). The money will be going to the Boomer Esiason Foundation’s Team Boomer program. Team Boomer is all about fighting Cystic Fibrosis. I have mentioned it a few times on here, but Cystic Fibrosis is a cause that is very near and dear to my heart as my brother in law lives with CF. This disease will affect him as well as many others for the rest of their lives. A 'side effect' of the disease is fertility issues. You know my adorable nephew I love to brag about? He's our miracle baby. They had to go through genetic testing, and 4 rounds of IVF before they finally got this precious little man...

 My brother in law took up cycling a few years ago, because it was a way for him to get active, which essentially helps keep him healthier and the disease easier to manage. I love seeing companies like Timex (who specialize in living active lifestyles) contributing to causes that are related in ways that most people don't even realize.

So let's help them out, let's give Timex a reason to max out that donation to Team Boomer!

Get your butts in gear, log some miles and use #IMARUNNER! In case you need some added incentive (besides supporting a kick ass cause), using the hashtag also enters you to win free swag from Timex!
