I worked with some very awesome women mentors to train a new batch of runners. Erika, Tricia and I met last year when we were part of the Zooma Ambassador Program. It was like coming home to work on the mentor program with them- I love these women so much and they inspire me every day with their kind hearts, strong bodies, and lovely souls.
This race report is about Carmen.....and Donna......and Julie.....and Jane.....and Laura (although Laura ran with her mentor the day of, Laura and I did many training runs together). And Kim, who also ran her own race but I know personally and well, this report is about her, too.
We traded aches and pains.
Many hours of talking and laughing commenced during our training weeks and our training runs.
I am so damn proud of these ladies- they don't even know, THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW PROUD I AM OF THEM. On one of the hardest courses I have ever run, they did 13.1 miles. There was blood, sweat, and maybe a few tears
You are ALL half- marathoners - CONGRATULATIONS!
Friendships were hatched on the training runs.
PS- Would ya'll like to read race reports from some of the ladies who ran with me on Saturday? None of them have blogs but a few of them have sent me their words- their story about race day. So do you want to read what they have to say?! Please say yes!!!
