And give you an opportunity to run the Ambleside Mile – for free! This event is being put on by the same awesome folks who organized the West Van Run – which, incidentally, was the topic of my very first race report!

Final Thoughts

I’m really excited about this contest! It’s something I’ve never done before – still new to blogging, remember – but it makes me feel sort of ‘legit’. I expect to learn things about how a contest works, and hope to connect with more readers (and other bloggers?) as a result.

I really look forward to your comments! Please, stay a while – visit some of my other blog posts, comment elsewhere. If you like what you read, follow me!

Thank you!

A special shout-out to Kirill and the Ambleside Mile team for making this contest possible!

  1. It’s cool to see the mile making a comeback! I love to run not only because of the awesome endorphins… 🙂 but it’s also a neverending source of new and rewarding challenges.

  2. Jaclyn Jary says:

    I LOVE RUNNING BECAUSE IT HAS MOTIVATED ME TO DO MORE AND MORE RUNS AND SET PERSONAL GOALS. THE ATMOSPHERE IS ALWAYS AMAZING AND PUMPS ME UP TO FEEL LIKE I CAN DO ANYTHING I PUT MY MIND TO. THE MILE RACE WOULD BE ANOTHER CHALLENGE FOR ME TO COMPLETE.

    • bjcjapan says:

      Jaclyn I totally agree with you! I find that having a race goal pushes me to achieve new things. The mile is a great challenge!

  3. Jan Heuninck says:

    It would be interesting to test these legs after all those long runs in preparation of the BMO Marathon this Sunday!

  4. lucibug says:

    I wish I was in town that day, I would so enter this contest!!! I love running because it makes me feel strong (How’s that?). Plus I get to meet people (like you!) that I would probably never connect with otherwise! Good luck to all the entrants 🙂

    • bjcjapan says:

      Lucy, thanks for commenting even though you can’t attend. I agree with your comment – meeting people like you is one of the huge pluses of running! I’ll get you at the next contest!

  5. Sometimes I wonder why I run.

    Especially those days when it feels like my legs are lead weights attached to a jiggling belly. But then are the days when my head is totally connected to my body and breathing feels effortless. The faster I go, the easier it feels and all the stress melts away.

    Then there are the great people I have met over the years during training runs and races!

    Running has changed my life for the better and I look forward to many more years on the roads and trails.

  6. bjcjapan says:

    Bev – you are absolutely right! In retrospect, I support today (BMO) was a bit more of the former than the latter, but we did it! Proud of both of us!!

    Running has changed my life, too.

    I am pleased to announce that Jan Heuninck has won the random draw for the free entry to the Ambleside Mile! Jan – I’ll send you an email with the discount (i.e. free!) code. All other entrants will receive a 10% off code to sign up online! Thanks to everyone who entered!

  8. […] This year, the Ambleside Mile was organized by the same folks who brought us the West Van Run earlier this year. I was so impressed with that race that I took note of this short-distance run. Then, in an effort to promote my blog, I was offered a free entry to the Ambleside Mile to give away in my first ever blog contest! […]
