Morfitt Blog: ‘Another Run, A New Group’

By Karen Morfitt

Another run in the books but this time with a new group! We were able to catch up with about a dozen runners from Transamerica before they went to work in the financial world.

Before getting started I had the opportunity to chat with some of the other runners about their motivation and learned several of them are also part of a group known as “Tomorrow Chasers”

The Tomorrow Chasers will start at the very back of the race and try to pass as many people as possible. Transamerica will then donate $1 to the American Heart association.

For many of the runners signing up for the Rock & Roll half marathon isn’t just about the exercise, its about supporting family or friends.

They have seen their loved ones struggle with heart complications and its given them a deep appreciation for their health and the ability to run 13.1 miles.

As I struggle to lace up my running shoes in the morning, it helps to think of these folks and just how fortunate I am!
