Every day that I have been a part of TEAM IN TRAINING I find out one more thing that I love about it. Not only is this organization raising money and awareness for an unbelievable cause, but motivating individuals of all kinds to accomplish things that may seem impossible.
One of the things that they have incoporated in our training is the Monday night optional ‘buddy runs’. Basically another training day in which you may find fellow TNT’ers running.
Cuz if you are you like me, you would rather run in the blazing heat with a buddy then do it all alone.
So today I finally took advantage of the buddy system, because it was slim to none that I was going to motivate myself to run in the 90 degree weather solo.
Okay, so don’t be fooled I did run with my bestie Maria. But there was one more that joined in the fun, she just didn’t want her picture taken.
We chose to keep it simple and run 20 mins out and 20 back. Due to the heat, we wanted to do a quickie.
Looking at the sweaty mess of this picture I will opt to say that it wasn’t quick enough as I was sweating buckets.
Total Distance: 4 miles | Total Time: 44.20 minutes
I think the even cooler thing about these so called buddy runs, is the fact that no matter who you are running with they are a new friend. You are working together for a cause bigger than yourself. Which is such an incredible feeling.
When our magical purple TNT bracets united our super powers went into effect.
We are super hero’s – saving lives with every run.
