How Swagbucks Works For Me – Swagger2013b

Ready to meet another Swaggernaut?  Today, we meet Swagger2013b, from Richmond, VA who shares with us a very inspirational story.

Hi there!

I have struggled with anorexia and bulimia for years despite plenty of therapy, and while I’m definitely not what some might call “recovered,” I have found something new to focus my energy on: running. As my runs got longer and faster, I found I couldn’t restrict or purge what I ate anymore if I wanted to have a good run the next day. Soon, I found that I loved running road races. I love the energy, the crowds cheering, the feeling of accomplishment after crossing the finish line and the weight of a medal against your chest. But races aren’t cheap. You have entry fees, hotel and travel costs, plus the cost of shoes (I go through a lot of sneakers now!), running clothes, camelbaks, gels… I could go on. Swagbucks has helped me defray some of the cost of my new therapy. I’ve used the PayPal cards for race fees and travel costs, and plan to get some Amazon cards soon to put towards some new sneakers.
The medal below is from my 12 mile race last weekend, and I’m training for my first marathon in November. I’m so thankful for Swagbucks. Racing has given me a new zest for life, and you’ve helped me to do more than I ever thought I could!

Thank you for sharing, Swagger2013b!  We wish you the best of luck in your November marathon and we know you’ll finish strong!  Here’s 500 Swag Bucks to put toward those new sneakers!
