Our Purpose

This story was recently on a Portland, Maine news station. It is quite inspiring and really sums up the purpose of why Amy, Christine and I started Mainely Running to begin with. We were those folks who crossed the finish line of a 5K, truly amazed that we could ever accomplish such a feat. From that first 5k we slowly but surely increased our endurance, to the point we are at now...completing many races including numerous half and full marathons, and hopefully many more to follow. And that's not to say "Hey...look how much we've done, aren't we great?" but rather "Hey...look how much we've done...if we can do it, so can you!!" We want you to know that you CAN go out there with no running experience at all (because believe me, the three of us started from scratch) and with patience and perseverance, accomplish any fitness goal you choose; whether it be running, biking, swimming, skiing...... AND (and this is very important) know that you don't have to finish in front of the pack to feel accomplished. Finishing is an accomplishment. So hopefully you will be as inspired by this video as we are!

Now get out there and start moving with us!
