Sole Runners Winter Kick-Off Party


The Green Girl is now a Sole Runners Mentor
The Green Girl attended the Sole Runners Winter Season Kick-Off Party at Buono's Pizza last night.

Coach Steve welcomed everyone and provided an overview of the Sole Runners program and training philosophy to all the newcomers.

After Coach Steve's introduction, he asked mentors to come up and speak about their Sole Runners experience.

Much to my surprise, Coach Steve also announced that I have become a Sole Runners mentor and then he asked me to give a quick speech.

I am deeply honored to be a mentor for such an incredible group of runners.

I have the utmost respect for all of the mentors and it means a lot to me that they have welcomed me into their circle.

Rad Runner Girl attended the dinner and decided to finally make it official. I also chatted, albeit briefly, with Jay from Tri2Thrive.

I was pleased to finally meet Yvette, someone with whom we have mutual friends.

As I chatted with fellow Sole Runners and potential new Sole Runners, I reveled in the positive energy that was surrounding me. Each person I spoke to inspired me in some way.

I am really looking forward to the new season.

Runners just do it – they run for the finish line even if someone else has reached it first. Unknown
