In honor of Election Day, I thought I would give you a list of the top 10 reasons why you should vote for me to win a grant from Refuel with Chocolate Milk. Like any good candidate, I have analyzed my competitors and although I realize that the other nominees are worthy contenders, I believe that this list will convince you that I am the only candidate you should vote for!
#10. I have a cute kid! Hey, I’m a mom. It was inevitable that I was going to mention my son! But really, being a parent is the toughest and least glamorous job that exists. And I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
#9. I am a runner! What other sport has people signing up to compete in events that they know they will not win?!?! Runners are a unique group of athletes who are devoted to their sport and to cheering each other on. (And yes, we are a bit crazy too! And proud of it)
#8. I am determined. Once I decide on a goal, I work my hardest to achieve it. I can’t even tell you how many times I utilized Facebook & Twitter to encourage people to vote for me!
#7. I am Garth Brooks biggest fan! That counts for something, right? Ah maybe not, but I do like to mention it from time to time.
#6. Just like you, I am the everyday warrior. I am wife, a mother, a runner and everything in between.
#5. I will be completing my first half marathon at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Strip at Night! The training has taught me just how tough & regimented I can be!
#4. I really do drink chocolate milk after I workout! It tastes great and it helps my body recover faster than it would if I drank expensive sports drinks.
#3. I am competing in the Michigan / Ohio Tough Mudder on April 14, 2012. With 12 miles and 27 obstacles it is the toughest race I have ever registered for!
#2. While competing in the Tough Mudder I will be wearing a special shirt! It will list the names of service men and women who I will be racing in honor of or in remembrance of. It’s a great reminder that “Freedom doesn’t come free. ”
And the top reason why you should vote for me to win a grant from Refuel with Chocolate milk is . . . (Insert Drum Roll Here.)
