Wednesday Wisdom: Ready to Race!

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. ~ Lao Tzu, an ancient Chinese philosopher

We just completed our first session of our Mainely Running class offered through the Bangor Y and it was a smashing success if we may say so ourselves!

We had a strong core group who worked hard and improved by leaps and bounds, literally and figuratively!  We could not be more proud of these ladies who are now ready to run their first 5k! We know that they are going to totally rock it!!

 Here they are pounding the pavement on the streets of Bangor: 
And victorious after completing a dry-run 5k!
We know that a number participants in our class had never run before and weren't entirely sure that they'd be able to get all the way up to 3 miles. With determination, hard work and persistence, however, they've done it!  

If you're interested in joining our next Mainely Running session which starts on September 6th please contact the Bangor Y at 941-2808 to register. And don't forget that if you'd like to join or sponsor our Mainely Running Runs for the Cure team you can do so by visiting,
