Better Together at the Cowtown

By March 1, 2017Fit First

cowtown-marathon-2After six months of training, Fit First participated in its first 5K, Half Marathon, and Marathon during Fort Worth’s annual Cowtown Marathon. “What an amazing weekend at the Cowtown!” exclaims Jennifer Stephens. “We enjoyed nice cool weather and great (sometimes comical) community support.” Starting in September, Fit First met early on Saturday mornings at the Trailhead at Clearfork for its six-month Cowtown Training Program. Although it was hard work, it wasn’t all work and no play. After finishing the long mileage of the week, the group caught up over breakfast and then checked out the Farmers Market. “It’s been a wonderful time accomplishing our goals together,” Jennifer adds. “I continue to say we are better together, and it showed as we pushed each other to finish strong.” Now that Fit First has reached this goal, they aren’t stopping there. The group will continue to meet on Saturday mornings for running, walking, and cycling at the Trailhead — and the next goal is always steps away.
