Proud of my Pod

To make things easier on the race directors, coaches, mentors and most importantly team members the group is divided into small pods with a dedicated mentor to help answer questions, provide encouragement and sometimes yell ( here’s looking at you Chrissy).  Its a little unsettling to reach out to a group of random ladies and […]

Team Myles 2.0

Its funny how different I felt walking into the orientation night for Team Myles 2017 as a mentor compared to the year before as a team member. The panic and fear of “what have I done, I can’t do this” was replaced by “I’m so excited to meet everyone and be a small part of […]

Jesus Take the Wheel

First Run Done

Race day!
