This is my third season volunteering with the See Us Run Des Moines group. I initially started as a way to spend more time with my oldest daughter, Keeghan. She is the oldest of my four children and with her siblings being considerably younger, I thought this was a great way to give her some individual attention..... if I could only keep up! I have found the experience to be so much more than just spending time with her. I have learned so much more about her peers and what the daily struggles of being a teenager are all about. I have not only gained friendships with the other adult mentors, but with the teenagers, as well. Some of these children have lived lives that I cannot even begin to imagine and they have taught me valuable lessons along the way.
My intentions are to stay with this group as long as I am able to do so. I was not a runner before the first day of practice and now I can proudly say I am a Marathoner. It has helped our whole family take a new direction on making healthy choices. The greatest feeling is crossing the finish line and looking at the reaction on my mentee's face. Priceless. They have achieved a goal that only 1% of the population can say they have.
