“I’ve been running for 4 years. I run because I love being outside, so running is the perfect sport for that. Running is a great way to unwind from everything else that might be going on in your life. It clears my mind. It’s my special me-time. I have ran the JJ10k 3 times now and just love the event. I had just trained for a half marathon so the timing of a 10k was perfect. I run about 4 times a week at various distances. I really would like to run a marathon one day. Maybe later this year or next year. Until then, it will more more halfs and 10ks.”

“I’ve been running for about 14 years. Running is my stress relief. I also love the feeling of accomplishment after a long hard run. In my early 30’s, I began running longer distances and decided to train for a marathon. I qualified for Boston in my first marathon, but have struggled with injuries ever since. In the last several months, I found a physical therapist who has been able to find the root cause of all of my injuries and has helped me to get back to the sport I love. I decided to run the JJ10K because I am finally healthy enough to participate. I slowly increased my mileage over a span of 2 months, but also cross trained on the bike and lift weights a few times per week. I hope to continue to improve and become injury free. I would like to be able to run a half marathon later this year and possibly go the full distance in the coming years.”

“I’ve been running for 20 years. It makes me feel good about myself physically and mentally. I ran JJ10K because its fun to do. I run an average of 6-8 miles 4-5 x a week. I really don’t train for it!! My goal is to run another half marathon before I’m 50.”
