From the Community . . .
Today I achieved a goal I would have never thought possible if I hadn’t found this online community which inspires and motivates me so much! I am now officially Marathon Maniac #13069 after finishing 3 marathons in 90 days! And today was a marathon PR for me too despite the hot weather! Being part of this group has opened my eyes to so many possibilities as I see all of the incredible amazing accomplishments of others. Thank you all for constantly inspiring me! -Louisa
