My Story



The Worcester Marathon is held by a company called USRA. The recently sent an email requesting people to email them their story as to why you are running Worcester. Every couple of days or so the send out selected stories via email to everyone on their email list. Last week I read a couple good stories and decided to send mine in for the heck of it.

Today, after my lunch time run, I had a few minutes to kill and was on Facebook for a bit. Within minutes, I got a few messages from some people from the running club telling me that they just read my story in an email from the USRA. I immediately checked my Gmail account and sure enough it was there. You don't win anything for this, but it's kinda cool that they used my story some people noticed it.

Here is a screenshot of the email:
