Yesterday my Training for More group faced a challenging weather situation: wind, rain, sleet, snow – just about everything you might expect with a mid-March storm warning in southwestern Vermont.
Guess what – the women won!
18 of us headed out to walk or run 10 or 12 miles on our way to partcipating in the Great Bay Half-Marathon in Newmarket, NH on April 11th. We might have been soaked, but our spirits certainly weren’t dampened by the weather. We all learned something important today: a positive attitude, the support of friends, and a firm goal make it possible to overcome any obstacle.
As one of the women in the group put it afterwards: Sometimes you run with your body. Sometimes you run with your mind. Sometimes you run with your spirit. Today we did all three!
