I've decided to go for it again and enter the Runner's World Cover Contest 2015! To some people, this contest may be silly or it may be viewed as attention seeking. But before you pass judgement, please take a moment and READ my #RWCoverContest profile. You will find out that that I run for a cause that I'm passionate about > bringing awareness and educating the masses about Lyme Disease and raising money to find a cure.

|Running for #LymeDiseaseWarriors Everywhere|
Just this week, for the first time ever, I shared my own personal journey living with chronic Lyme disease for 20 years, in front of a room of people, at the High Heeled Happy Hour that benefited the The National Capital Lyme Disease Association. This was a fundraiser event I had coordinated back in December and it was an amazing evening! I was surprised at the number of people there to hear me speak and then afterwards, tell me how they found my story inspiring.
If anything, my message is not "Hey, look at Fabulous Me, who can Run with Lyme Disease."
My message is about Awareness, Hope, Education, Empowerment, Encouragement, Never Giving Up, Believing in Your Dreams, and To Dream Big!!
As always, I am appreciative of your support! You can vote 1x a day through 7/22 by clicking on my profile link: http://coversearch.runnersworld.com/entry/292/81bsrh7o7sguo83h1bey%0A
EVERY SINGLE VOTE COUNTS!! I would be super ecstatic if I won this contest! This would be a HUGE platform to educate and bring awareness of Lyme Disease, which is one of the fastest growing health epidemics in the United States.
THANK YOU for taking the time to vote and for sharing this post!!!
Peace, Love, and Running,
