This post comes to us courtesy of Major Scott LaRonde, who organized the first-ever Iraq Freedom Livestrong 10K on October 25. Major LaRonde contacted Newton about the race a few months ago and we were proud to lend our support. We provided shoes to all the podium finishers as well as t-shirts and giveaways.

According to the Major, over 615 participants ran the 10K course through the Green Zone and over $21,000 was raised for cancer research.

    So amazing. On my first marathon ever (Shamrock Marathon, March 22, 2009) in Virginia Beach, we ran through two military bases. Being from the area and seeing those men and women was so moving. It’s odd to running and thinking, “wow, this is hard” and then realizing that the running you’re doing is nothing when compared with the sacrifices these men and women make to afford us the luxury of running whenever we want.
