Barbara: As I sit at home on this rainy Saturday watching movies and rolling through fb I can’t help but think how thankful I am that I made a decision last fall to get up on an early Saturday morning to go run in Safety Harbor with this group called Run Tampa! I thought oh I’ll go once, they will probably be fast long distance runners, was I ever wrong and never ever thought I would get up at 5 or 6 am to run! There are all paces, ages and distances. It doesn’t matter if you are running 13 miles or 1 mile, a 9 minute pace or a 11 to 15 minute pace, there is always someone to go with.
Find me another running club that offers holiday entertainment while getting fit! So far we have seen the Easter Bunny, put on our Red White & Blue for the fourth of July and now a Christmas in July party!
Seriously, I may not be the fastest runner but I put my best running foot forward to start and finish because of all of your encouragement and support!
Kim: Yesterday’s run was my first (just moved here) and as I set my alarm for 4:40 the evening before I was so nervous….I cannot express too how grateful I am I went!!!!! Grateful to be able to run, grateful for such welcoming people…thank you all so much! See you next week.
Candi: I can’t say it enough – the group runs are where the “magic” happens.
