Today was yet another one of those days that I am so proud to be an employee of our company. Not only were they a major sponsor of the event, but they promoted and encouraged people to train, set goals, and accomplish them. They made a commitment to the community and the employees participating to go all out for us and this race.
At the final mile marker, our company even had a cheering section of people encouraging us, complete with a DJ to rock out some tunes. It was an awesome way to pump up the runners as they entered the last mile of the race (some 5K, some 1/2 Marathon, some Marathon - I capitalize Marathon intentionally out of respect for the distance). It was over and above anything I expected for the event. Simply awesome.

Encouraging each other, high fives, and people accomplishing personal lifetime goals...even those who have never run before...simply amazing. I'm so proud to have been a part of it. Our company proved once again that they are such a great employer. I am sure that many other employees felt the same way...so appreciative of the support and effort.
I heard many people already setting goals for next year...I can't wait! Congrats to all that participated!
