From the Community . . .
I wanted to say thank you to MTA members, Angie and Trevor for being the supportive running group I’ve needed to shoot for my goals. I went through a dark time when I finished college soccer and was left with no team and no support network other than my family that lived 2 hours away. No goals and no direction. I found running as a way to cope and then it later became my new athletic identity and main sport. I became a marathoner with the help of MTA! Because of this, I recently tried out for a semi pro soccer team that FC Wichita is starting this year. And all be darn if I didn’t make the call back and will be going to training camp to compete for a roster spot! I would not have had the confidence or fitness base to do this had I not of found running or had the backing of the MTA to keep me goal oriented and motivated. Thank you! I am grateful for you all! -Traci
