  • What Motivates You to Run/Walk? I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment especially after longer distances or a tough workout. Plus it is always nice to be outside and enjoy the views!

  • What do you like the most about Team FTC? The atmosphere! It is very motivational to have fun people to log miles with or to suffer through a track workout lol. Plus the support from Coach and Angela is amazing!
