“The Speed Project was an indelible experience that tested my mental and emotional resilience - not just the fortitude to continue in one stretch, but to stop, let go, start again and again. Overall, I love to connect with others through running, and to advocate for running as a super accessible way to improve fitness, release stress and empower. You can start anywhere, anytime.”

“I run because of my curiosity to test my limits as an individual. Joining The Speed Project is about proving that when we run as a team, or with friends, we can go far beyond our individual limits.";

“I find peace in running. My mind is clear of any stress and anxiety, it allows me to focus on my every breath and every step. This led me to run in triathlons, a marathon and an Ironman. These experiences taught me that pain is temporary, and mind over matter. When I finish a race, like The Speed Project, knowing that I gave it everything I could and there’s nothing that I could have done better, that’s one of the best feelings ever.";

“What I love about running is you get what you give. The Speed Project required a lot of giving before we got any back but one thing's for sure—it was worth all the pain and suffering. Through my actions, I would love to inspire others: to assist in opening their perspective to things that they otherwise would not have thought about or thought possible, to share my experience and my growth and to grow the community deep and wide of such high quality global friends I’ve made through running.”

“Running started as a necessity for me. Nowadays, it has become an important part of my life. It has allowed me to travel and discover the world differently and make great friends all over the world. The Speed Project is all about the team and the ability to put individuality aside to reach a common goal.”
