Moms Make Things Happen: Join Team in Training in Savannah for 50% off registration fee

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Team in Training Savannah Publix race Thinking about signing up for Team In Training in Savannah? Here is what mom, Danielle, has to say about her experience.

“I first signed up with Team In Training for motivation and support to train for my first marathon. My brother is a lymphoma survivor and I wanted to do something to honor him. As luck would have it, just a couple months into training, I discovered I was pregnant! So, I took a little over a year off and signed up again when Jordy was just five months old. I loved being part of a team – everyone was so supportive regardless of fitness ability. Our coach offered much needed motivation and advice as I spent five months training for a full marathon. I was so proud to wear my purple Team in Training shirt on race day!

Fast forward another year and I had the opportunity to co-coach the Moms In Training program. Leading this group of moms and first time runners helped hold me accountable to waking up early every Saturday morning and hitting the pavement. A bonus was that my baby girl, Jordy, could train with me. It was exciting when she rode in the stroller for 5 miles and just smiled and repeated “go team!”
