5k Yes I Can! Participant

“I wanted to thank you Erin for the YES I CAN training last year. I took what you taught me, and decided to train this year for my very first half marathon. Never before have I ever considered running that far. Your training and positive reinforcement changed all that for me. I ran my first half marathon in 2 hours and 20 minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole run and I attribute that to you and your training. Thanks again for teaching me that YES I CAN!"
