"I always wanted to support and show appreciation for all the work that [Run Wild Missoula] had invested in allowing me to have the pleasure of racing. But more than that I feel a kinship with other runners. I 'belong' to an entity that both supports me in my passion and encourages me to enjoy it more fully."
