CARA Helped!

"A huge thanks to the South Side CARA group, led by our own Valerie T. Thanks to my pace group: Susan, Eva, Michelle, Mike and Valerie. Today was the longest I have *ever* ran in my entire life. Susan and Eva stayed with me the entire run and made sure I stayed on pace - for which I am grateful. Thanks ladies. ;) "
