Race day, the day we all have been working so hard to get to is finally upon us. Tomorrow is the big day. 10 weeks of aches, pains, hills, adventures, and accomplishments are about to finally come to fruition.
I’M SO EXCITED!!!
This has been an incredible journey. 10 weeks ago I was terrified. I didn’t know anyone, never ran a day in my life, and was sure I was going to give up and fail miserably. But here I am. Here we are. A close knit family of runners (that’s right, I am a runner now) that have achieved so much during such a short period of time.
Team Myles is such an amazing program that I am so happy to be apart of. It has carried me through so many firsts that I never thought I would do. Together we have ran further then we thought possible, I completed my first 5k race, ran hills upon hills, and madenlifelong friends.
I could have never done this without the amazing support group that LifeMark provided for us. Our coaches and mentors are the best around. They push us to our breaking points without exceeding them, the are there to talk and answer any questions or worries we have, and they tape is back together when we break.
Not just the coaches and mentors though there are also the other team members, the Team Myles Ammbassadors. 10 weeks ago we were all strangers but we have become family. These people are there for each other no matter what. We have laughed, we have , cried, we have celebrated each and every accomplishment together. You guys are amazing.
So in general I want to say Thank you. Thank you to the Sponsors, the coaches, mentors, and other ambassadors. Without you I would have fallen and never gotten back up. Because of you guys I am going to be crossing that finish line tomorrow and I can not wait!
I am so sad this time is over and that the training it complete. I am going to miss out Sunday Rundays and our hills nights. But I know that it is not truly over. We will still run, we will still train, and we will still be that family.
Team Myles has changed my life in so many ways. Thank you so much for allowing me to take part in this adventure, and thank you for the support and belief in each and everyone of us.
Team Myles Rocks!
Myles Mafia for life!
