Finally, the congratulations I’ve been waiting for…I’m officially entered into the Marathon! Huge thank you to everyone who supported my fundraising for Team R4V. Because of your support, I was able to raise over $600 to support our vets!
I’ve never run a race as part of an organization before, but am proud to be part of this team. Team R4V is much more than just a ‘show-up-for-your-t-shirt-and-swag’ team, it’s a group of athletes who are dedicated to supporting our vets and supporting each other. Within a day of registering, I was added as part of their Facebook group, where fellow runners from all over the country are posting about their upcoming races, receiving support + inspiration, and providing helpful tips for their fellow team members. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about free t-shirts, but it’s feels great to be a part of something bigger.
Training is officially in full swing (it kicked off with bootcamp can you believe it?!) with many more details to come.
Has anyone else ever run as part of a bigger team or organization? Curious to hear your experiences!
As always, run on runners.
