How fast can you run a mile?

Here’s your chance to find out! Although I’m still pretty new to blogging, I want to take this opportunity to share my appreciation with my loyal readers! 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!

So let’s get down to business…

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!
