To me, April means that my birthday is coming in a month! I know that some people don’t love birthdays, but I love mine. Celebrating a new year means 365 opportunities to have a great day! I am also a bit superstitious and I feel like what I do on my birthday will be a sign of the year to come. So, I need to have fun and RuN! This year my birthday falls on a Saturday… and I found the perfect birthday race! I will be running the Newport 10K in Jersey City, NJ. I ran this race previously and the course is a beautifully scenic run along the Hudson River waterfront.
After the 10k, there is a birthday party for me at Newport Town Square at the finish line. Well, actually they are calling it an after party, but I think that’s just so everyone doesn’t feel bad that they don’t get their own post race birthday party. There will be a DJ, refreshments and even prize drawings. So… COME AND JOIN ME!!
The best part is that the race is for good. The proceeds from the race will be donated to the Jersey City Medical Center – RWJ Barnabas Health, the area’s only not-for-profit hospital and regional trauma center.
AND since giving is awesome, the race organizers are allowing me to give an entry to the race to one of you!
I will be posting on Instagram on Thursday, 4/6 (exactly one month before my birthday) before noon about the race and there you will be able to enter to win the race entry. So if you don’t follow me yet, please start now because I cannot wait to celebrate my birthday with you!
