Running the mini marathon in May 2018 seemed like an elusive goal for us both! We were only acquaintances at the time but connected almost immediately when Run Club started. We quickly became the fiercest of running buddies. With related mindsets, tenacious personalities, and unwavering determination, we supported one another through tears, sweat, injuries, and even one surprise pregnancy! Before sunrise on Saturday mornings, you'd find us pushing one another to run faster, farther, and longer. Through the rain, cold, and snow, we managed to run our way through a combined seven races and supported one another wholeheartedly the entire way. Lauren and I have come such a long way since joining the FIT4MOM family. Finishing our first mini-marathon in April was such a huge accomplishment but even better, through this experience we've bonded as ‘sole’ sisters for life!
