"It was so nice to be outside. I experienced something this weekend that I thought it was worth sharing to the group. What many of you might not realize is that there is a big running community in Greensboro. If you show up to Spence Love tennis courts on a Saturday morning there are tons of people informally gathering to run. All you need to do is show up. So this Saturday Mark and I decided to drive over to Spencer Love and go for a run. Mark was going to run 3 miles and I was going to attempt a 10 mile run. So we took off and we stayed together for the first 1.5 miles before Mark made the turn to go back. I continued on my run. I happened to be wearing proudly my NoBo’s shirt that I earned after completing my first session with NoBo’s. By me wearing this shirt, it was though I had my own personal cheering section. I passed so many people who would give me a thumbs up or would say “you are doing great, keep it up”. I heard “Go NoBo’s”. The encouragement went on for miles. Towards the end of my run, I guess that people could see me struggling and the encouragement just got stronger. I can honestly say that those strangers that I passed on the trail inspired me so much. It was the coolest experience ever! I just had to share."
No Boundaries is more than a training program. It is motivation to start taking the first small steps in a series of even bigger ones. Whether you are looking to run you first 5K or need motivation to continue with people just like you, this is a journey that will take you very far. It starts with a single step.
