Sole Train! has altered my life. It has made me believe in myself. I was even able to prove myself and others wrong. When I first joined, I wasn’t ready to handle the responsibility. My Sole Train! teammates helped push me towards excellence. When I gave up on myself my Sole Train! family was always there to pick me up. That hard work paid off for me when I ran 13.1 miles, which I never thought I could.
This achievement has inspired me to continue running. I have taken a huge step and joined the track team in my school.
