My name is Mark Spewak. I founded More Miles More Smiles with one goal. I want to inspire as many runners lives as I can. I have been a distance runner since I was 12 years old. Running has always been something in my life I have been proud of. I have met several of my friends through the sport and have accomplished a lot of goals I never would have dreamed of reaching. I am a native and current resident of St. Louis, Missouri.
My purpose here is to share my love for running with all of you. I firmly believe adding some type of physical fitness into your daily regimen can improve your mental and physical health tremendously. For the majority of my running career, I have been on a team of some sort. In the fall of 2012, it was the first time for me not being with teammates along my side. I was struggling to find identity and purpose in life. I often asked myself, “Why am I still doing this?” The answer was, “More Miles More Smiles.” Since then, every time I step out the door I am confident I will finish with a smile on my face.
I believe the more you run the more you smile. Running is relative from person to person. Whether you run 100 miles a week or walk half a mile a day doesn’t matter. The fulfillment and satisfaction you gain from the sport is all yours. No one can take that feeling away from you. We can all gain something valuable from this sport. My mission here is to be a source and outlet for anyone looking to enhance their healthy running addiction. I have run competitively on the high school and college level. I understand what it takes to be a happy runner. More Miles More Smiles validates my passion for the sport. Never again will I doubt why I run. I hope the same for you too.
Thank you and smile more! :)
