As many of you may know, I have a deep love for running. Although, that has not always been the case. I was once enlisted in the United States Army and while I served I honestly loathed the fact that I had to run everyday! But, that all changed three years ago when I reconnected with an old friend and the two of us made the decision to support each other, train together and run our first ever 5k! The friendship, support, and accountability that came with having Jen by my side helped me to get through the ups and downs (and there was a lot at the beginning), and actually achieve more than I ever thought was possible.

So, fast forward three years, 2 - Half Marathons, 1- Half Marathon Relay, 1- 10- Miler, and numerous 5k's and you have the start of a local running club that offers that same support, accountability and friendship... Charlotte County, FL Moms RUN This Town!
Our local chapter of this national running club is only in it's infancy stages (it just started in January) but it already is taking off with a bang. We currently have 20 active members and the support and friendships that have begun are priceless. Charlotte County MRTT has even been lucky enough to have it's first official sponsor, Lily Bomb Athletic Wear. If you haven't heard of this company yet, they are the customer friendly maker of sparkle skirts at an affordable mom friendly price! The owner of Lily Bomb Athletic Wear, Marina, was once even a member of Moms RUN This Town, so she understands, the benefits of being part of such a great organization. I am so excited to see what the future holds for Charlotte County, FL Moms RUN This Town and if you would like to join in the excitement visit the website http://momsrunthistown/charlottecountyfl or Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/charlottecountymrtt/.
