Training for Boston, Chicago, and NYC kicked off for the Heartbreakers and Non-profit partners today. Coach Dan set the tone with this kick-off message from the week one email:
"Now, we begin training for our fall marathons in earnest. There is much uncertainty around the facts and fate of our beloved fall (and spring turned fall) marathons. Will they even happen? I don't know. What I do know is that training for a marathon is a bold and life affirming choice regardless of the outcome on race day. I see it in the relationships formed, self-confidence built, and strength forged. Race day is just one shining, high-energy expression of your transformation through the training process but it's not the only one. So as we begin, let's keep ourselves optimistic about the future while also celebrating the fact that through good training, we'll be better versions of ourselves regardless of what comes on race day.
One more thing, if the best damn races in the world happen and we're at the starting line know this: you will be prepared, you will be ready to race, and you will show off your deep well of strength because of the things you kick into action right now.
As your coach, it’s my job to help guide the process of preparation, to challenge you, to build you up..."
