Ambassador of the Week and a Giveaway for CLE Marathon Race Entry!

Thanks to Facebook’s On This Day application, I discovered that my running anniversary was just about a week ago! It’s still sometimes so surreal to think about the fact that I’m a runner. Not just any runner, but a 3x half-marathoner! Trust me, when I stepped on that treadmill for the first time four years ago I had zero expectations for any distance beyond just a mile so to be able to say I’ll be running my 4th half-marathon this fall is so amazing. (Even more amazing? I’ve been using the treadmill these past couple weeks and I don’t hate it.)

My first race was the Running With a Mission 5K at the Cleveland Zoo back in June 2012. I came in last place. But instead of letting that deter me, I’ve become a proud back of the pack runner. I host a podcast dedicated to the back and in July I will once again be presenting at FitBloggin about being a slow runner. I’m also currently writing a memoir about the subject that will be coming out next year.


Right now I’m currently training for the 5K/10K Challenge at the Cleveland Marathon and I am so happy to be back as an Ambassador for the second year in a row. My fellow runners are some amazing, amazing people and I am so grateful they are so supportive of this ol’ turtle and even let me join them in the Akron Marathon Relay last fall.

As an Ambassador, I not only get to represent this phenomenal organization, I also get to give away a free race entry!

Love from the ashes,
Lady Lazarus

  1. I would run the half marathon! What a great kick-off to the running season for me. Plus, it's my birthday weekend so I can eat tons of cake and not feel guilty!


  2. I think I would join you for the 5K/10K challenge. The 5K is my favorite distance but I want to redeem myself since my first 10K did not go as well as planned! 🙂


  3. I would love to run the half again, I did back in 2013 and it's been a long hiatus since I ran in a race and would like to cut down my time. Maybe someday I can tackle a full!
