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 […]

Race day!

Its so hard to find the right words to try to begin to express the mixture of emotions from race day. When my alarm went off at 5am I already had my Team Myles shirt laid out with the rest of my outfit and gear, breakfast was planned and anything I could have ready was […]

Team Pride

For our last Tuesday training session we decided to forgo the hill and tackle the race route. Everyone was nervous and trying to decide the best running plan for their personal goal. I knew from the weekend that I could do 5k with no walking breaks so I decided to set my sights on that […]

Saturday 12k

On May 12 I had the pleasure of running in the 2016 CUA Lung Run with a few Team Myles members to help raise awareness for lung health.  We had team training that morning and had run 10:1s for 7-8k so I wasn’t sure how smoothly the evening run was going go but we rocked […]

We have been running twice a week, attending 360 fit bootcamps and TAYS yoga classes to help make our bodies and minds strong but not having run that distance yet plays with your self confidence. My friend and fellow Myles […]

Perspective

Before I began this journey, I had a goal in mind. To run 10k without stopping. I knew I would have great difficulty getting there on my own. Team Myles has been amazing and provided support and training that have been essential for this journey. That being said, I haven’t reached my goal yet. Last […]

Heart Beats

  Along the road of this training we have seen some members of our team lose weight, get fitter, develop a passion for running and become great friends. My story involves the heart. Mine. I am a Thyr’vor, which is a Thyroid Cancer Survivor. I take thyroid replacement hormones and have for the past 18 […]
