If you don't know yet...our Mission Statement:
"Earned Runs believes that the most effective way for runners to persevere in their sport, and experience the physical and mental health benefits of regular moderate-to-vigorous exercise over a lifetime, is to commit to regular competition with training.
Training, in addition to running, involves strength conditioning and workouts to improve flexibility, mobility, balance, and speed. Competition may be personal or organized and involve self-driven or public goals. The rewards of frequent competition include confidence and a sense of accomplishment that enriches life in sport and at home and work.
Earned Runs seeks to enable affordable personal running competition by giving free professional racing bibs on request, and support safe training practices with online information at no cost. It wishes to promote social engagement, environmentally responsible running through minimal use of community and individual resources, and generosity of spirit through charitable giving.
Earned Runs works to complement and support the efforts of the organized running event network and bring new runners into the sport."
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
