Got the email today from our company captain (I passed the baton for this year)…was amusing, figured i’d share 🙂
10- You get to run/walk through scenic Central Park while hundreds of spectators cheer you on.
9- This year is the 30th year the race has taken place.
8- Free stuff- Not one, but two free t-shirts, plus- a goody bag at the end of the race.
7- You don’t have to run, thousands of people choose to walk the 3.5 miles
6- A marathon is too long, or… good training for a marathon!
5- You can help make up for our pitiful turnout last year, only 5 people participated!
4- 15,000 people run in this race, don’t you want to be one of them?
3- Proceeds from the entry fee go to non-profit organizations throughout the city
2- It’s a great way to get in shape for bathing suit season!
1- Exercise is good for you 🙂
I’m still not convinced though. 2 years of packed races and Corporate Challenge and Run Hit Wonders have sorta scared me off from events where the number of registered runners is in the 5-figure range.
I’ll think about it. 🙂
