|Betty racing in the Berlin Marathon|
Can you feel it? There is something about more daylight, flowers in bloom, birds singing and the pitter patter of feet hitting the pavement that jump starts my day and makes me feel alive. Yes, I must confess I get my inner Zen early in the morning with my trusted Brooks running shoes. Whether it is the fun of a new route, the buzz from a great run, quiet moments to solving problems or just the magic of capturing the sunrise – I love running. My only regret is that I didn’t start running earlier in life. Running long distances has analogies to business – you are in it for the long haul. There are peaks and valleys, twists and turns, but the thrill of victory when you cross the line with an amazing new product or new customers makes the journey worthwhile.
So as I get ready to complete my 5th World Major Marathon (yes, 26.2 miles) I challenge you to lace up your shoes and join us for the Spirit of Bellevue 5K and 12K on May 22nd. This fun event allows you to walk the 5K or jog/run the 12K and see the amazing sights our City has to offer. Plus, your efforts are helping raise funds for college scholarships for deserving kids and budding entrepreneurs. And it is even more fun when you have family and friends join you. Register now and use discount code CatchTheSpirit by May 13th to save $5 off of your registration fee!
