I run to push myself to the limit, have fun, and challenge myself to do better the next time. Also who doesn't love the reward of sweet chocolate at the end.

To inspire my kids to work hard to achieve their goals. Plus, the feeling after a good long run is something that can't be found anywhere else. Exhaustion and exhilaration!

To inspire my daughter - we have run four Hot Chocolates together. To honor my father who passed away from pancreatic cancer, and my mother who was diagnosed with ALS. I run for those who can't.
