  • Sarah fowler

    A half marathon was on my bucket list and this one goes right through my neighborhood. No excuses.

  • Kimberly Gray

    I want to be a good example to my three young girls, I want them to see they can do anything they set their mind to!

  • Whitney

    I love the sense of accomplishment I have after training for months and completing the race. I do this purely for myself!

  • Jean

    I am done creating my little boy army (three boys under six), and am ready to be fast again!

  • Stacey

    I’m running Geist to stay fit for my baby–I’m 18 months pregnant!

    • Team Film Post author

      Congrats on the baby! Keep it up, Stacey. Running will make chasing a toddler a lot easier–and relieve some of the stress that comes with little ones.

  • Anna

    I’m working towards a healthier body after loosing our six-year-old son to complications for Cerebral Palsy last year.

    • Team Film Post author

  • Emily D

    My goal is to run 12 5K’s this year! 🙂

    I am running because my friend challenged me and then convinced me that being a member of the Month of May Club was the cool thing to do!!

  • Briana

    I am running the Geist mini to prove to myself that I can accomplish great things after 30 and it’s also a great activity that my husband and I are doing together 🙂

  • Stacey Draper

    I am running Geist for my 26th birthday, and to dedicate it to my little buddy Anthony who is three years old and cannot run for himself!

  • Leslie Rebholz

    There’s a great joy in completing a 1/2 Marathon as you cross the finish line -seeing my husband and son greet me- realizing your did it and the preparations for it keeps me healthy both physical and mentally.

  • Julia

    Because the course is as beautiful and enjoyable as the people who run it!

    • Team Film Post author

      There is a lot of beauty in running, volunteering, camaraderie and rallying to the finish. Nice, Julia! Congrats.

  • Ann Yeakle

    Because waking up early, training when I didn’t want to and working through injuries….makes the day of so special and the perma smile I have when I finish makes it all worth it.

    • Team Film Post author

      Hope that perma smile is still there, Ann. Proud of our fellow strong women getting tough and being proud. Congrats!

  • Rachel patrick Rogers

    The peace I feel after a long run is unmatched! Sharing that with a group of like minded people is the best. Sidling up to a stranger and realizing you have so much in common, can only happen at a race!

  • Andie

    I ran Geist last year and the year before. This year, I was determined to run my best time yet, and I did! I blew my previous PR out of the water, finishing 3.5 minutes faster, and ending at 1:48:15!!

  • Dori Davis

    I do this race EVERY year. It’s a great way to interrupt the stress that the end of school year tends to bring. Running with our Kids Up & Running Club adds a layer of mentorship and FUN!

  • Rebecca

    I ran Geist because of the support, friendship and encouragement of two awesome people! They convinced me bit only to run it but to train at 5 am in the morning! I finished with a personal best time and can’t wait for my next 1/2!!!

  • Maty

    I ran because my grandmother can’t. I ran in her memory.

  • Kathryn Yost

    Geist runs through my sister’s neighborhood, and I was hoping my nephew would see me run and someday do the same 🙂

  • Cassidy

    Running half marathons like the Geist Mini keeps me motivated year round to stay healthy and in shape so I can give it my all and really push myself once the big day rolls around!

  • Dorice

    To prove to myself that I do have the mental toughness to do anything!

  • Laura Getz

    I enter races to stay healthy, motivated, and connected with people in the community with similar goals and interests. It’s a great way to start a day…although I could use a nap right now.
