So June 1st was National Running Day, did you hear? I'm sure you did since there was a plethora of posts about it in the running blog community.
So why do I run?
Simply, because it keeps me sane.
Because I need it.
Because I can't live without it.
Because it's who I am.
So is it any shock to you that I was one of the Captains for my teams Corporate Challenge?
When I was asked to became a captain, I knew my first order of business was to get Dri Fit or Technical T's. I chose to order the same shirts we got for the National Half Marathon. I ordered them from a company in California called ExpertPerformance. Then I had my friend Emily (check out her awesome blog here) design the shirts. And lastly, I sent the shirts up to Embroidme in Chelmsford, MA to get them printed. Don't they look great?

We met in a conference room for gatorade, water and energy bars before heading to the Capital for a team photo. Check out all those runners. We had 75 people compete!
Kelley, but I have to post this. It's the world's best photo!!!
Then we headed to the commons and before we knew it, we were off...
Mile 1: 7:38 Mile 2: 7:33
Mile 3: 7:54
.50: 3:53 (7:31 pace)
3.5 miles in 26:56 (7:41 pace)
3rd Women on my team
263rd Woman out of 5240 (not too shabby...)
Oh, PS. I saw Jess between Mile 2-3 and I screamed out and said hello! We ran a few steps together... Jess it was good to finally meet you!
After the race we headed to Battery Park Bar and Lounge for some drinks! It was a really really fun night and I love being part of the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge.

Now I'm off to run another race, the Foxboro 5K with my husband and a bunch of my blogger friends.
Have you run the Corporate Challenge before?
And Why do you Run?
