My love of running/walking events began many years ago when I was told I would never be able to finish a 5k because of my weight. I was determined to prove them wrong! I have participated in hundreds of events including 5ks, a triathlon, and two half marathons as well as organized several very successful 5k events in Darke County, Ohio. Due to several injuries, I don’t run anymore but I still love to walk in events. I really enjoy the encouraging, supportive environment that comes along with the sport of running, walking, and cycling. Yes, these events are competitive but it really isn’t about who gets a medal. It’s about being active, and living a healthier life. And, I’ve made some great friends! When timing a race, I love to watch the emotions of each person that crosses the finish line. Whether that person is racing the clock for a new PR or he/she is someone who finished their very first 5k, I get to celebrate the victory with them. If you are thinking about participating in a race, I would encourage you to do it! The sense of accomplishment is worth it! And, don’t hesitate to contact one of us if you are interested in getting started.
