RaceTeam - You did it!
RaceTeam Wanaka done.
After 10 weeks of preparation you took this challenge head on, worked through each session, each week, overcame mental challenges as well as the physical challenge.
You have worked together towards your own goals and should be really proud of yourselves. We hope you enjoyed your RaceTeam experience ;o)

Rest, Recover, Reset
Often after a goal is reached like this we come down from the "post race high" and can feel a little flat. This is normal!
Make sure you give yourself a week of recovery but don't leave it too long after that to get back into a running routine. While you are out there enjoying some nice easy runs, think about what your next goal might be.
Reflect on the last 10 weeks - what did you do well? What would you improve on next time? Most importantly - be proud of yourself. You have dedicated the last 10 weeks to this, you have given so much time and energy into training and so enjoy what you have achieved - we are very very proud of every single one of you.
If you would like to keep running with Extra Mile Runners, there are a couple of options:
