……..my new partner in crime:
J has been hired by Team Challenge!!!!! I’m so excited!
Let me give you a little background: the NorthEast Ohio chapter of Team Challenge was dwindling a year ago and was almost about to be cut from the program since it hadn’t been very successful. Well, a new endurance manager was hired the season I came on board and miraculously brought the program back to life. Normally, each chapter has 2 coaches – a run coach and a walk coach. But last season there was only me because they weren’t sure what was going to happen.
Well, since we were so successful in meeting our goals we get to have both coaches this season. When Ryan (my endurance mgr) asked if I knew of anyone who would be interested in the position I immediately thought of J. He comes to mostly all the training runs, plays soccer, goes to Spinning regularly, and runs races with the family. He’s the fittest he’s ever been and 100% qualified for the job.
It took a little convincing, but he finally realized this was our chance to work together and be a “team” (hehe, get it? Team Challenge?).
He’s going to be my partner and get those walkers to the finish line!
I’m so excited for the new season to start next month and training for the Virginia Half Marathon. If it’s anything like Vegas, this season is going to be AMAZING with J on board.
This will be our first time “working” together. I’m excited, but also nervous. Do you work with your spouse? Do you love it or hate it?
