The Mission Inn Run loves to hear run stories about individuals participating in the event. How exciting is it to know that running changes the lives of people. We received a story from Kim Kranz, This is what she said.
My run story starts in 2012 when my daughter asked my husband to run a half marathon with her. He declined, but I said I would do it! Little did I know that it would lead to a happy addiction! I was overweight at the time, so it was quite a challenge. I started by running by first 5K at Fairmount Park in Riverside and kept going from there. I ran several 5Ks, 10Ks and my first half marathon in November of 2012 with my daughter. I was completely hooked! I plan to run my first full marathon in January of 2014 in Carlsbad. Since I started running I’ve lost 30 pounds and feel amazing! Oh, and my husband is hooked too, along with my two daughters. I plan to run the Mission Inn Half Marathon and my husband and daughter are running the 10K. So excited to be running in beautiful Riverside!
