Runner's World Magazine Cover
*from Runner's World
Oh my goodness. What did I just get myself into? Why did I do this and can I delete my entry?
For those of you that don't know I recently decided to throw my name into the massive pot of "Runner's World Cover Search." What this means is I could possibly have the chance to become a finalist and land myself on the cover of Runner's World magazine.
I never thought I would be able to say anything like that in my life. I mean, yes, it's always been a dream of mine, but to actually be very close to obtaining this opportunity, well that's just amazing.
From the beginning of when I started running, my best friend always had several copies of Runner's World magazine at her house and I've read a couple of copies and instantly became hooked. There was a lot of useful information in these magazines from "what a runner should eat before and after a run," to "a sneaker guide for all runners," to "amazing stories of how runners overcame obstacles." So while reading these amazing articles I was motivated to become something I wasn't, a runner.
Back then I didn't know the difference between a 5K and a marathon. I didn't understand why people would pay to run when the world was an open playground; I couldn't wrap my head around running in the rain. This was all new to me.
But as time passed, I ran. I ran for my health and I ran to fall in love with running. I understood that a 5K was 3.1 miles and a marathon was 26.2, I understood that paying to run was an accomplishment to run with a group of people, a way to take trips and receive medals, I understood that running in the rain makes you more aware of your running and can actually clear your mind. These concepts and more are made me the runner that I am today.
