Team 'Run IT Faster' Did It!

Monday, October 26, 2015
Our very own relay team “Run IT Faster” finished the Grand Rapids Marathon last month for the second year in a row. This year’s team included Leo, Carrie, Carolyn, Andrew and Richard. This was Carolyn and Richard’s first time ever running a race and they were both surprised by how well they did and how much fun they had. It proves that with a willingness to try, motivation, and peer support, anything can be accomplished.

Let’s Get Moving Together!
Our next big race will be the River Bank Run on May 14, 2016. This is an all ages, co-ed race with four events, a 5K Walk, 5K Run, 10K Run and 25K (15.5 miles) Run. The 25K has a relay team option for teams of 2-3 participants. We would love to field multiple teams and have our customers run with us. If you’re interested in the River Bank Run or other upcoming races let us know! You don’t have to be experienced and there’s lots of resources available for training. A quality training tool that we can attest to is the Gazelle Run Camps, they have a variety of different levels for beginners (couch to 5K) and experienced runners (25K training programs).

We also have to give credit to Northern Physical Therapy who put together our corporate wellness program last year. The program really kicked off healthy habits around our office and we’ve all been making positive lifestyle changes since then. Shortly after our wellness program ended, our first marathon relay team was fielded and a tradition began.

Finally, we'd like the thank our team of "supporters" who came out to cheer our team on at the Grand Rapids Marathon.
