In January 2011, Louisiana native Brandon Williams decided he would participate in the Forge Trail Series for his New Year’s resolution and share his journey through a blog. He quickly learned that Louisiana lacked a platform to promote the sport of Running and was also ranked 5th in the nation for physical inactivity.
Wanting to help, he launched Claim Your Journey, a comprehensive initiative dedicated to fighting the problem of physical inactivity within our families in Louisiana through promoting Running as the first option for a healthier and more active lifestyle. Run Louisiana.Why choose to run?
Running is arguably the easiest physical activity one can engage in. For, it only requires a pair of good running shoes. Benefits of Running:

• Running is frequently recommended as therapy for people with clinical depression and people coping with addiction.
• Many participants in the sport report feeling an excited, joyful state often referred to as a runner’s high.
“Running is more than our passion, it’s our lifestyle. Run Louisiana”
