Meet RunHer SARA!!!

I never considered myself a runner but thanks to the wonderful support of my fellow RunHers, that’s what I am now!  When I joined Winter Maintenance 3 years ago, I had never run more than 4 miles in my life and came only because a friend invited me.  I struggled those first few weeks (ok, months!) but eventually started to build up strength and endurance. I found the group to be so warm, welcoming and accommodating, that I stuck with it and after about 6 months was joining them for long runs.  I ran my first half marathon about a year after joining RunHers and look forward to completing my 3rd one this year! Not only have I made some great friends, I’ve learned how to be a strong, smart, injury-free runner from collective wisdom of my fellow runners and the amazing support of our coaches.
