Mission Run Club's First Race

August 15, 2014

A few months ago, some Mission employees set out with a goal to train for the Baltimore Running Festival this Fall. It was a slow start with a rain-filled spring, followed by extreme heat in July, but we've finally settled into a groove. We have four Mission team members training for the team relay, with one striving for the 13.1 mile half marathon. We even have a seasoned runner entering the full 26.2 mile marathon! And we've picked up a couple more runners recently.

Earlier in August, we competed in our first team race, The AT&T Sneaks Come Out At Night 15K or 3x5K Relay. 

We started out with smiles:

And an appetite for victory:

We perfected our relay hand-off:

One brave Mission lady even conquered the full 15K:

And then we charged the finish line:

Although we didn't win, we're extremely proud of our finishing times and look forward to completing a few more races before the big day on October 18th.


Wish us luck! And check back for more photos of our journey.
