As promised, I have Adam's and Tim's response to all who entered the "Running the Edge" giveaway this past week and wrote about how running has transformed their lives. Without further ado, here is what they had to say!
First of all a big thank you to Jane for including us in her first giveaway! She is a gift to the running blog community!
As we were reading the comments, we were so deeply moved by some of the stories that we asked if we could reply in a guest blog. Jane was kind enough to agree so we tried to think of a general way to communicate how we felt about these stories. The only thing we could think of was to respond to each one of them individually. Find your name below and a brief note from one of us. Thank you all again for sharing your stories! - Adam and Tim
Katie - What a great goal to run a marathon in every state. And what is even better is that you get to do this with your husband! I plan on running my first Marathon this January at the Olympic trials. Then I will finally be able to see first hand what my wife keeps telling me about it. Good luck in your quest! - Adam
Nate - Do you know Ben Davis? We did a blog about him and how he lost 120lbs running and he is featured as a story in our book (Chapter 15 I think). Your story reminds me of his. I read your comment before Adam did and then tried to paraphrase your words about being the most out of shape to most in shape in crowds. I didn’t do a very good job getting your words right but know you had us talking about YOU! Well done and keep it up! - Tim
