Swallowing a bug was the highlight of my cross country running career. I was finishing up one of my first meets in second to last place and wondering why no one ever talked about insects getting stuck in your throat as a vital aspect of the sport. With that knowledge, you may be surprised to know that I kind of hate running. Part of me envies the regular marathon runners who seem to be able to run six miles on a whim and another part of me can still taste that bug in my throat. But when I saw that one of my favorite social enterprises, FEED Projects, is hosting a 10K Run this fall in NYC (and 10 other cities) I immediately signed up at Run10Feed10.com. Just $40, all funds raised go to providing food for those in need in America and every runner gets a limited edition FEED tote bag. Plus it’s an excuse to dust off the old running shoes and remind everyone (myself specifically) why I was second to last and not last place.
Were you able to do the run10feed10 this year?I was in NY to attend this event for the first time but got injured a week before. I got stuck training with one of these manual bad boys lol. I didn't participate but ended up being on the sideline and helping the venues clean up.
