SCRANTON RUNNING COMPANY - TEAM SURVIVOR

Scranton Running Company's Team Survivor was formed in July 2010. It consists of ten breast cancer survivors with a mission: take their running and walking to a new level at the Race for the Cure on September 11, 2010. They have just 9 weeks to prepare. We've sponsored and will support them along the way in their fitness endeavors. They've kindly agreed to share their inspiratoinal stories and experiences here:

Still Going Strong...

The weather has been very cooperative in allowing us to continue outside. A majority of us are still getting together 1-2 days/week. We can be found running/jogging/walking around the Abington High School outdoor track, Nay Aug Park, or the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail. Locations and times vary depending on our schedules, but we are determined to keep at it. Since the Race for the Cure in September, several of us have participated in two additional 5K Run/Walks -- the Lupus Loop in October and the Jessica Reap Heart Run/Walk in November. A couple of members of the group are using the winter months to complete their reconstructive surgeries with the intention of being ready to get back to us by the time spring returns.

The friendships we have developed are the greatest benefits to me of our Team Survivor group. The weight loss and overall physical changes I am experiencing is an added bonus as well : ) Thank you, SCRANTON RUNNING CO, again, for bringing us all together!! You have created an upside to breast cancer! We will continue to strive to make you proud! Happy New Year, Everyone!!

2011

Last of the sugar cookies are gone(or should be),joints are a little rusty and looking for action,and supposedly a fashion show in February modeling SCRCo. apparel is in the works for Team Survivor(that could be scary,not the apparel but the modeling)!Hopefully that is just the beginning of a very active year for Team Survivor and Scranton Running Co..in addition to faster 5K times and may be longer distances!Always encouraging new members to join -no fees just a great attitude and a sense of humor!

We Continue On...

Just wanted to let anyone following this blog to know that we have not stopped our running/training just because the Race for the Cure is over. We are still getting together -- "partly for the running, but mostly for the socializing." Just this past week, Tuesday - Heritage Trail; Thursday - Nay Aug Park; Sunday - Lake Scranton!! We may change the locations/times week to week depending on everyone's schedules, but we do not want to quit! Haven't figured out what we will do when the weather turns against us to be outdoors, but we will figure something out. Any ideas are welcome. We have turned RJ loose to concentrate on his own training, but we do miss him! I wonder if he is missing all the "girl talk"! As long as he doesn't schedule an appointment for a Brazilian Blow-out any time soon, I think he can expect to have a full recovery. We will keep you posted...

The Pink Ladies - A Video Short

If inspiration was bottled and sold as liqui-gel capsules, you'd feel exactly the way you do after watching this video. Special thanks to John and Karen Mann for putting this together. It's our sincere hope that by sharing this onslaught of smiles, we'll influence and motivate others to seek their own happy place through the pursuit of a more active lifestyle.

We Did It!!!

Saturday was a great day! Thank you, Matt, Matt, and especially RJ and Megan, for your support, enthusiasm, and for making us believe that we could do this. What a great event to give us a more positive memory to associate with 9/11. I have made some wonderful friends, and for this I am truly grateful. Now that we have been guided in the right direction, we plan to continue to get together and keep up our training, with the thoughts of hopefully participating in other community events. As Lindee said in our huddle, it's not just about breast cancer anymore -- it's about our overall health now. Thanks again, everyone! I never would have stuck with it on my own!

Finish Line

Team Survivor you are Runners!Unbelievable experience to cross the finish line with individuals who showed determination, focus and dedication toward achieving their goal of running 3.1 miles.The familar mile markers slipped away almost unnoticed as we traveled the race course in celebration of our lives.There was even enough oxygen for conversation and laughter!Half the team meet their long lost relatives along the course,no casualities occured thanks to family members guarding their mother and RJ(a.k.a Forrest Gump) kept the pace by barking at his students when the cameras weren't rolling!We are truely blessed to have our paths cross in such a positive way thanks to the support of Scranton Running Co. and the guidance of RJ and Megan.What I take away from this race,I hope to share with others.Friendship and support are powerful tools in attaining what may seem like impossible goals.Let us embrace this experience and continue to make our health a priority.Thanks so much Matt B,Matt R,RJ,and Megan for being involved in this life changing experience.Lindee Kent
