If your skepticism or questioning in your abilities is holding you back from running the IJM Land Half Marathon, I am here to convince you otherwise.

- TO GET THE MEDAL– I mean…..have you seen the IJM Land Half Marathon 2018 medal? The medal you receive for finishing a half marathon is something that you can show off and cherish for the rest of your life.
- TO CHECK IT OFF YOUR BUCKET LIST– Everybody has one or more thing(s) that they want to accomplish at some point in their lifetime. If running the IJM Land Half Marathon 2018 isn’t on it, it should be! Why not join in?
