We generally highlight a monthly star in our newsletter, but this time around we have a group of about 150 runners to praise. These runners have put in hours of training over the course of the last 6 months. Some have never run a half or full marathon, and running Rock ‘n’ Roll will be an achievement they have dreamed about for years and years. Some run marathons all the time and just can’t get enough and can’t wait to push their limits on Saturday right here in their hometown. The runners we are highlighting this month are those in our CREW Training groups running the Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon and/or Half this weekend. You guys absolutely light up our world and we want to personally congratulate you and thank you for the energy you have brought to our training programs. We get jittery every time you guys start trickling in after work to get changed and warm up for your runs. All those early mornings, laughter and encouragement you have provided each other really puts a smile on all our faces. All the sweat that has left you, all the stretching, extra laundry and gooey goodies you have been consuming lately will be well worth it come race morning. Our CREW runners are towards the top of our lists of why we get up in the mornings (sometimes before 5am). To see you become runners, become better runners, better people, and better friends gives us so much joy. We are all going to feel like proud parents on Saturday while we are cheering each and every one of you across that finish line with the music blaring in the background. You are the reason we all find so much joy in staying in the fitness profession, and you are not only our stars of this month – you are the stars of the year!
