Old Glory Relay Update: Full Steam Ahead For Florida

Posted by Briana Boehmer on Sep 29, 2017 4:55:44 PM

At Run The Edge, we get excited when one of our virtual events coordinates with a live one.  We announced at the beginning of September that we were partnering with Team Red, White & Blue for their fourth annual running of the Old Glory Relay (OGR) by raising funds via our Amerithon Challenge virtual event. OGR is an event that tasks over 70 teams to move a single American flag across the United States and Amerithon tasks participants to virtually exercise their way across the country. Yes, we thought it was a perfect fit too! :)

wear blue: run to remember story - Seamus Donahue

Posted by Briana Boehmer on Jul 28, 2017 12:15:13 PM

For our re-launch of the Amerithon Challenge, our chosen charity wear blue: run to remember founder Lisa Hallett is sharing the stories of a few of their program recipients.  Today meet Seamus Donahue in Lisa's words:

Eighteen-year old Seamus Donahue ran the Marine Corps Marathon last year, shortly after the one-year anniversary of the death of his father MAJ Michael Donahue. Seamus and his dad had started running together a few years before. I jump in with our Gold Star athletes on the course, whenever I can. Seamus was cruising. Hoping to run a 3:25... but as he ran through the mile, his breath was ragged. "I can't breathe. It's harder than I thought it would be." His pace slowed. And we ran the mile together.

When all of us at Run The Edge think about what running can do, what it can mean, we believe there are no limits. We’ve learned through our own experiences, and through what our company does day in and day out, that running has the power to inspire, transform, connect and even heal. Sometimes we even think, there’s nothing a good run can’t fix.

As we began planning the re-launch of our Amerithon Challenge, we wanted to find a charity partner that spoke directly to the power one finds in joining around a common bond. When we found wear blue: run to remember we knew we didn’t need to look any further. Their mission is strong and speaks to us.

The Hard is What Makes it Great

Posted by Briana Boehmer on May 23, 2017 9:37:19 AM

So many things in life are simply put — hard. Not much comes easy. Intuitively, we know this  to be true, yet we often see people reaching for a way to debunk this almost natural law of the universe. And why should we expect anything to come easy anyway? Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own explained “It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.” Can’t argue with you on that one Tom, well said.

Two and a half years ago, Barbara Rausch had a routine of dropping her son off at cross country practice and walking for the duration of his practice to fill the time. Each time she would leave for her walk the head coach would ask if she wanted to join the kids for practice. “Is he nuts?”, she thought. “How can a 46-year old woman run with a bunch of high schoolers?”
