"I am new to running and their running group is the best thing that has happened to me." - Mariangela
"Takes you farther than you ever thought possible in your journey. A decision you won't regret if giving your all." - Cheri

"About a year ago, my good friend and I started running with MIT in the hopes of running a half marathon together. In late August of last year we not only ran, but finished our first half marathon – all 13.1 miles of it – in a little over three hours. It was the single greatest accomplishment of my life to date."
- Sara
