This past year I closely followed the Wild Bruce Chase girls as they ran the entire Bruce Trail end-to-end and broke a record in doing so. These girls were mostly a mix of skilled trail runners and speedy race podium frequenters. Although I was incredibly impressed with the result of their record, the social media updates I found myself enjoying most revolved around the comradery, support, friendships and celebration of their experience. The experience of a team.
So on May 19th to 20th, 2017 you'll find our team, appropriately named Endorphriends, running west along the Waterfront Trail towards the Falls and our finishline. And, I am looking forward to all of the moments. My three legs of running, including one in the middle of the night. The cheering of our team and others. The shuttling of our team in our two team vans to our next transfer points. The food. The photos. The social media updates. The hugs. And the celebrations.
I'm happy to have found my team.
