Go CV!!! πŸƒ‍♀️ πŸ’ͺ

How about some throwbacks to older editions of the Boston Marathon. Each year being different with new faces and new friends and so many memories!! So many great memories. Some thoughts for first timers from some Fusion athletes:
1. Eat breakfast! In fact, eat 2 breakfasts! Lisa Macpherson and Coach Sami
2. I wish I had known the hills started so early. Everyone talks about Mile 20, but they are there earlier. Nadine White-Boyd
3. I wish I realized that getting to be there that day was the real win. Enjoy the race, enjoy the event, enjoy the day for what it is. Your time time that day will never define the day. The memories and interactions will. Natalie Turner
4. I remember Boston 2009. As I made the final turn, I had found a seasoned Boston veteran to run with the last few miles and he looked at me and said, "Slow down, young lady, and in fact, let's walk for 20 sec. You will never have the experience of your first Boston ever again and this moment is special. Take it in and let's look at the crowds cheering for you and cheering for everyone and pulling us to the finish line. He was right!!! Take time to savor the moment. Coach Sami

There is a pull to the finish line and you can get energy from the crowds. The win is the challenge you took to get that qualification. Fusion has been honored to be on the journey with some amazing athletes getting to Boston. Some returning in 2023 and some new faces in 2024! What a ride it has been. Christina, Lisa, Doug, Mark, Stewart, Terri, Nadine, Larina, Joanne, Natalie, Pam, Cathy, Brian, Renee, Emma and every friend, running partner that has been a part of this adventure.

People ask if I will ever go back to Boston. I had the perfect experiences in 2009, 2011 and then again in 2014 running with my best running buddies, Shannon and Val. We trained together, we stayed together in Boston, we had story hour the night before, we experienced that day together. Ha, 26.2 miles. Could not have been more perfect and I love remembering it that way. (Val gets to return in 2024 and go Val!).

Good luck to all Wilmington runners!! May the wind be at your back πŸ™‚

Add Jessie Lienemann from Michigan to the list. Running the Martian Half Marathon!! go get em.

Go get ‘em!!

swimming the 5k just because the deluge of rain wasn’t enough water for me down here!

I came across this poem and it reminded me of me. It has taken two weeks of discovery and a recommitment to what Fusion is and why Fusion exists. Never stop discovering, never stop learning and never stop believing in different ways to accomplish a goal. Training is not all about metrics, but about consistency, a solid belief in yourself, and a solid belief that hey, let's try something different. Be YOU! Be authentically YOU. That includes when you go race. Do your race! Always reach for new dreams and new goals. We believe no goal is too large! Take the road less traveled. #passionforgoals #visionforyourfuture #beauthenticallyyou #resetrefreshrefine ... See MoreSee Less

I like the road less travelled. It is a tad dangerous with exciting unknowns to be explored and, in that way, it is so much more fun!

I love your attitude!
