The Extraordinary Running Award For June
"Why we run" has been the focus of several blogs and comments lately at the Lounge. So it’s no surprise that the winning Extraordinary Runner story for June answers the same question.
Long before he decided to start running, this month's winner, Kevin, ran via the legs and hearts of those around him. But our job at the Lounge isn’t to retell stories, but to publish them. So read more about his story in Why Am I A Runner?
Monthly Extraordinary Running Stories of inspiration come in all forms—getting started, finishing, racing, persevering, and returning from setbacks. We run because we want to, because we need to, because we crave running, and because without running we would be less than our best.
As we say at Runners' Lounge: Great moments in running happen every day. But Extraordinary Running stories don't unfold because we are extraordinary runners. In fact, they happen because we are ordinary runners who experience and achieve extraordinary moments through our running, goals, and dreams.
So sit back and re-consider how your story might be more inspiring than you think. Each month’s winner earns a free pair of running shoes from Onlineshoes.com. And the rest of us will benefit by enjoying your story.
Everyone is welcome to submit their story!
