I randomly fell into training…

with Team Beit T’Shuvah through a friend of mine. The previous year I trained for the LA Marathon primarily by myself and sometimes, on those 18 mile solo runs I’d get lonely. My head would start with the negative defeating self talk. Training this year with Team Beit T’Shuvah it’s been an entirely different experience. The coaches are so knowledgeable and patient and inspiring. The team has such a good sense of humor! So many times I’ve felt discouraged or uninspired and express these thoughts or feelings to my teammate and they say stuff like “I totally get it. I feel that way too, here’s what I do…” And suddenly I’m re-inspired, recommitted and grateful all over again.

Running clears my head, gives me peace, makes me feel like a little kid playing in the great outdoors! The team makes me feel supported, part of a community, inspired – strength in numbers. The smiles, laughter, high fives and cheers transform my experience of running. So grateful I was led to Team BTS and so excited and inspired to be a part of this amazing experience. Thank you!-Becca Zalona.
