Look closely and take heart! These are the beautiful faces of #NYPHroadrunners in action at the Rock and Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon last October 14, 2017. Faces of pure determination, power, courage, strength, grit and grace under pressure and the unadulterated steel reserve to plow through 13.1 agonizing miles despite the odds.
This started last year when Joy @vj1129 saw me right after my MRI-guided Breast biopsies for Breast cancer, I was black and blue and I couldn’t run the San Antonio Half Marathon, so I walked and I finished. She promised she’ll run the next Brooklyn Half with me. And she asked other friends and co-workers and we became 9 runners strong! As the year unfolded, it got harder to get everyone to run together because we come from different departments, had to deal with physical injuries, personal issues and just life in general. A lot of people didn’t take us seriously, some of us did not have enough training and when our legs started to fail towards the finish line, we ran with our hearts! Folks, when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill as they say, just take a look at these faces of pure #graceAndGrit. We won’t disappoint. Everyone is welcome to join us. We need your hearts, lungs, legs and an open mind. Then start putting one foot in front of another. Remember, the body is designed to move. -MEdeAsis-Ner
