Win a Run for the Dream entry

Disclosure: Run for the Dream is providing me a race entry for an 8K. All opinions about the event are my own and I am not being compensated in any other way. Run for the Dream logoOn May 31 and June 1, an 8K and half marathon -- Run for the Dream -- will run through Historic Williamsburg and finish at the College of William & Mary.

As I was looking for a non-half marathon to run before summer, the 8K portion of this race captured my attention a while ago.

It's an opportunity to possible go for a PR, but also test where I am heading into the summer months. Since Williamsburg is just an hour away from me, this race lined up perfectly with my race schedule.

The race also benefits An Achievable Dream and Paralyzed Veterans Racing. An Achievable Dream operated two schools in the Newport News area with plans to expand to Virginia Beach. Paralyzed Veterans Racing is made up of military veterans who were either injured during their service or after their honorable discharge.
