When I was 46, I watched my niece cross the finish line at the Rock
n Roll Marathon and thought, "I have to do this!" My husband's answer? "Well, have fun, baby."
Truth is, I never thought it was possible, but I gave it a try anyway.
I ran with an amazing group -- Team in Training
-- and, in 2008, completed my first half-marathon. I loved Team in Training, but was a bit daunted by the fundraising,
and I wasn't so happy with the other local running group I joined. Although I met wonderful people, the group seemed
dedicated to the faster athletes, and I just didn't feel the love.
Sole was Soul was born out of the desire to give people at EVERY
age and running level a place to be both challenged AND supported.
Running. Walking. Both.
Many of our members run "Intervals." That means you run 5-10 minutes, then walk
two minutes, then repeat! We also have runners who run straight through. And walk straight through. You
will never be pressured to go faster, unless you want to, and there will always be people cheering you on at the end. We
want to challenge ourselves in a way that feels good. Start slow, and build as your ready.
