This Saturday was the Bill Landers 5K, and what a success! First, the most important thing: Over 450 runners participated to support Glastonbury Education Foundation. Over 35 of those runners were mission FITNESS clients! We represented well with Matt placing 2nd in his age group and 8th overall out of 464 runners with a 18:59 time. I came in 1st in my age group with a 20:51 time, and Bridget was right behind me, placing in 2nd! Karen placed 1st in her age group, and Jen Sanford came in 3rd in her category! Myself, Bridget, and Karen in 4th, 5th and 6th respectively out of 232 females!


These are the only recorded successes, however, there were so many other stories of success that crossed that finish line. As we sat at the finish line and watched T Shirt after T Shirt reading “mission FITNESS” pass, it was just another testiment of how amazing the people of mission FITNESS are. As each team member finished, they joined us on the sideline, creating a larger and louder cheering section. It was with each passing client that I became so aware how lucky we are to have such great clients. Literally, every time I spotted a MF shirt I would turn to the person near me and say, “Here comes____. I love her/him!” It was such a great experience to have eachother pre race to calm eachothers nerves, and after the race to share in the celebrations. I look forward to continuing racing together as a team, and supporting eachother along the way!
