Medtronics Global Heroes Run

Post by Rachel August on Mon Oct 06, 2014 7:00 pm

What an AMAZING time at the Medtronics Global Heroes Event!!!! Everyone who has been was 110% correct in that we were treated like rock stars!!!! I met some amazing and inspirational people which was the highlight of my time there. Ran with Carolin from Italy – she was so cool!!!! We crossed the finish line together and just shared an incredible bond…..we truly are sisters!!!! The people who work at Medtronics were also so inspiring….I’m so grateful for the smart people of this world who chose to dedicate their lives to save and improve the lives of people like us!

Thanks to Mike and the rest of the Heart group for the great encouraging signs!!!!

Here are some of my pictures.


Oh - our time for the 10 mile was 1:34:17

Finding great difficulty summing this weekend up, but I'm left with such great feelings and inspiration that it feels like another awakening for me.

Rachel, thank you for getting the pictures up so fast, I'm sitting here on a computer that is about to crash and will not allow me to do the same, but I will soon.

I read all your well wishes here on the site with my phone the night before the run and I REALLY appreciated the support!

It was especially great to see the signs from Mike Nall and the HEART Buddies!

Don, it was a pleasure to see you again also!

twal....Yep, she is a speedster!

Thanks so much everyone, not just for the support this weekend, but for the years of support that got me here, you made this all possible.
