“Every Runner Has a Reason” commercials
Online Ads, Consumer
Every runner has his or her unique reason for lacing up. Anomaly, working with Dick's Sporting Goods and Greenpoint Pictures, found thirteen runners across the country to answer the question, “What do you run for?” Their responses were amazing; often humbling and always inspiring. The vignettes feature emotionally resonant stories told by runners including Steve Bell, a marathoner with cystic fibrosis, U.S. Military veteran Tony Clark, who was among the first Marines to enter Afghanistan after 9/11 and pioneering athlete Julia Chase, who in 1961 defied the Amateur Athletic Union’s prohibition of female road racers.
