Running The Race
This weekend I had the honor and privilege to run with a group of runners and walkers who had completed 10 weeks of training. Some people ran a 5k for the first-time others completed a 15k for the first time, regardless of the distance the feeling is the same when you cross the finish line–a feeling of accomplishment that words can’t describe.
The feeling of seeing someone accomplish a goal they set is an amazing feeling and I am so grateful to be a part of these runners and walkers success stories. I am proud of each person who participated in the training program and the race. These individuals took time out of their busy schedules to do something good for themselves. Maybe the race was a bucket list item, a way to start a healthier lifestyle, or to get stronger at a certain distance.
At times, I am sure the training seemed too hard and people wondered if they could finish. These wonderful individuals never gave up, instead they continued on the journey to finish something they started, something that seemed impossible. After the race was over, people were smiling and happy they did the race; that for me, is worth all the time my coaches and I put into helping others achieve what in their minds seemed impossible.
