We proudly present Team HMF!

So many of you answered our call for runners who love our sport and want to shout it from the rooftops.  We were overwhelmed with enthusiasm at the strength of the running community and willingness of so many to join in our mission.

Credit must be given to every one of you who applied. Each submission showed individual strengths and told unique stories.  Narrowing down a team of 25 was a gigantic feat.  We feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know so many of you.  And now, we want everyone to get to know the inaugural Team HMF!

This group of 15 women and 10 men represent fast and not-so-fast runners from diverse backgrounds and age groups.  They come from throughout CT and southern MA.  We will be telling their stories in more detail in the coming weeks so you too can get to know Team HMF better.  From coaches and personal trainers to youth running supporters and a teacher, their paths are different but their passion is shared.  Whether life-long runners or just starting to run recently, the members of Team HMF are excited to inspire and encourage.  Many have been motivated by personal challenges to live healthier, be stronger and help others.

Activities of Team HMF will be shared through the blog as well as on Facebook and Twitter.  They will be accessible to the HMF community via social media, so runners can not only follow their progress but also ask them questions and learn from the Team’s experiences to help improve their own running.
