Say “Thank You, Running” to Enter for a Trip to Amsterdam

Over the past few months, Brooks has come across countless motivational and touching #thankyourunning moments shared by our running friends across social media. Now, we want to say “thank you” to our inspirational followers with an opportunity to go on an unforgettable journey across the pond in Amsterdam!

Imagine yourself running through Amsterdam’s tulip lined canals and watching the next big Olympian compete at the the European Athletics Championships. Curious how you can get there? Simply share a photo or video of your personal running journey on Twitter or Instagram using the #thankyourunning hashtag or directly upload here. One winner will receive a trip for two to Amsterdam, including tickets to the Brooks’ sponsored European Athletics Championships in 2016. Relax and sleep soundly knowing that your flight, hotel room and finals tickets are on us. All you have to do is pack your running shoes and gear. Maybe you can even convince your local guide to change your city tour (also on us) into a running tour!

Hi! I’m Gina, aka @happyTRIgirl and I’m thrilled Brooks asked me to takeover their Instagram feed for #thankfulthursday today… Who am I? I am a runner. I am a racer and pacer. A dreamer and a doer. From 5k to Marathon to Ironman to Ultras. Every distance is a step in the right direction. Some days I run fast, other days I #runhappy slow and easy. The road, trails, and treadmill are my path, and my legs and feet are the vehicle. My ​❤ is the engine. I’m a wife, mother, and loyal friend. And, I sincerely believe #runnersmakethebestfriends. I work full time to support all that I love to do outside of work, and #payforkidscollege ​. I’m a coach. I love social media, and I love making new friends from all over the world. Oh, and I’m addicted to all things Brooks Running. Follow along, and if you’re feeling inspired share your #thankyourunning moments using the hashtag too!

      @markmymiles:disqus What running story are you sharing?

      • MarkMyMiles

        So many to choose from. Thinking about writing about my journey as a new mother of two kids under the age of two and how I am trying to reach my sub 3 marathon with hubby away in the military. Just have to find the time to write it : )

          Awesome! We’re looking forward to reading about it.

    I believe this initiative is an unbelievable way to not only inspire consumers and runners, but also to increase the Brooks brand name. This is an excellent way to engage so many dedicated and full hearted fans through allowing them to show thanks to the Brooks brand and to the sport or running. It is cool to see all the different journeys and stories and how running has impacted many lives. Great job, Brooks!
