Another great month at Team Sheila Dennis! It was still cold out but not as much snow so we kept warm by running! We kicked off February with our new training program in preparation for the Caesar Rodney race at the end of March. This month the ladies showed tremendous progress and increased their mileage significantly, look out – we’ve got some fast runners! We also celebrated some big milestones this month. Marie exceeded the 50 mile mark with Grandma and Peaches not far behind, they will reach 50 miles any day now. Alberta hit 30 miles and Dawn and Sheila are close and at the rate they are running will there in a few days! It’s wonderful to see all of the great progress the ladies are making, not to mention the great energy and spirit of the team!
This month we welcomed two new res members to team; Michelle and Althea both of whom rocked it out on their first run! We are so excited to have new teammates and look forward to running side by side with them!
Res of the month – Dawn!
Dawn joined the team right after the holidays and jumped right into running! In the past month she has increased her mileage significantly and now won’t go less then 2.5 miles each day. She pushed herself from day one and has the right attitude to accomplish anything. She is a sweet and down to earth women who is taking this opportunity to get back on her feet, seriously. Like all of us, her son is very proud of her!
Non-res of the month – Stephanie!
Stephanie joined the team at the beginning of this year, but we feel like she’s been with us forever! From her first run she has given 100% in supporting and encouraging the women. She has more energy at 5:30am than most people have all day! And she’s working to recruit her fiancée to run with us too! Her positive attitude and true compassion for her teammates is incredible – she brightens up the circle with her wonderful spirit!
