Camaraderie, perseverance and personal growth
In the middle of January, a group of 43 participants (walkers/runners) and eight Sun Run leaders started a 13-week-journey for the Intraining Sun Run clinic. The goal was the 10 km Sun Run event which occurred Sunday, April 15.
The successes of this program were seen on the faces of 31 participants who crossed the finish line last Sunday with smiles on their faces and a sense of great accomplishment!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the participants for their hard work and dedication to the Intraining program. I witnessed great camaraderie, perseverance and personal growth.
The program success is due to the wonderful leaders who guided, inspired, encouraged and supported the participants. Thank you to Sharon Sluggett, Barbara Murphy, Amanda Ockeleon, Amanda Jones, Louise Painter, Paul Rickett, David Demner and Rob Forbes.
