Rhode Races – Providence was my first half marathon ever. My Dad is a big runner and one of the biggest reasons I was inspired to run this race. He gave the best advice all the way up until race day but he couldn’t travel to Providence to see me run. I made sure to bring my phone on the race so that he could track me in real time! It was an incredible moment when, right as I hit a tough spot on the course and was feeling a little down – I received a “Cheer” from my Dad through RaceJoy. His cheers powered me through the rest of the race and I’m so glad RaceJoy helped him be there with me on race day!
