Running:

  • has taught me strength
  • has helped me overcome obstacles
  • challenges my mentality
  • and my body
  • has shown me how capable my body is
  • and my mind
  • teaches me discipline
  • and commitment
  • has made me cherish food fuel more than ever
  • has given me better and more appreciated showers
  • gives me power
  • gives me purpose
  • has taught me more wisdom than any schooling ever could
  • has given me the best relationships of my life
  • has given me a better character
  • has tested my faith and made me better for it
  • has changed my life forever in ways that words can never describe

To any spectator, this may just look like a group of runners from different schools competing against each other for places or medals. Passing each other in an attempt to demoralize the rest.
But that is not the case at all.
It’s a pack of people who share a common goal in a sport that they love.
It’s a pack of people who trust that they will put each other to the test and push beyond their limits.
It’s a pack of people who are willing to put in all the chips for not just themselves but for everyone around them to work hard for that sense of accomplishment at the end.
It’s a special bond that forms when you run in a pack unlike any other.
The gun goes off and suddenly…you’re among family.
