Will is part of the Orchard Park Elementary team in Fort Mill, SC, and he shares the same exact birthday as the Let Me Run organization — March 13, 2009. Since we’re both turning 10 on the same day this year, we interviewed Will to help us celebrate.
Will's reason for joining the LMR team: To meet new friends and have a good time!
Will's favorite part of practice: Running with my team
Will's favorite LMR lesson: How to work together as a team when running and cheer each other on.
How Will feels when he runs: It makes me feel great!
Describe LMR to your classmates: It’s very fun to get together after school and run! I think you should try it, it is a lot of fun.
Will's finish line feeling: I felt accomplished as a runner as I never ran before LMR and then was able to run a 5K.
Will's favorite part of being on a team: I get to always have friends to hang out with and they always have my back.
Turning 10 feels: Awesome!
Will's advice to LMR for our 10th anniversary: You should throw a party!
Will's time capsule message to himself, 10 years from now: Remember that I accomplished being able to run long distances in such a short period of time.
