Continued Motivation

This race has changed my life. This has motivated me to get up each morning and do what I can - and over time I've been able to do more and more. I'm now running 3 miles on most days.

Increased Confidence

I discovered fitness late in life and never considered myself athletic. Now that I’ve started running and doing challenges, I feel like an athlete and it has changed my outlook on myself.

Engaging Event Themes

I love being transported to a different place, a different era and pretending that I’m walking with the dinosaurs or even in space. As I reach each milestone, I love researching about the planet or dinosaur to learn more about it.

I love the community of the Facebook group, and the motivation of the milestone pins along the way.
