First Coached Run

Last week was our first coached run.  We met our mentors and fellow teamates. There are about 80 of us training for the triathlon. It was a nice relaxed track workout where we had the opportunity to get to know one another and have some fun. We also got an update about one of our cancer patient honorees, a little girl named Jensen from Los Altos she has been in the hospital for the past two weeks for treamtment. Her progress is going well and will be able to go home on friday.  Below is a photo of the group stretching after the run.

We also found out the woman next to us was Jensen’s mother and the girl next her was Jensen’s twin sister. As months went by we would get uplifting progress on her. In November we heard that her treatment was going well. […]
