Chapin High teachers Billie Williams and Lori Latham are currently training a group of seniors to run the Run Hard Columbia half marathon on March 2nd.

Signing up for the marathon is completely voluntary, but you have to put in the work in order to follow through with it. Each student is required to do a certain amount of training and have to meet up with a teacher at least once during their training. They also have to line up with how many miles they do a week.

A number of students how their training is coming along. “I dread training during the run but after I feel great and very accomplished. It’s become more of a mental challenge than a physical one and quitting would make me feel like a quitter. It has also greatly helped with my preseason training for Varsity and soon college soccer,” says Senior, Ava Ellis.

The half marathon is a great way for students to get involved with other kids from the school and it’s a great opportunity for them to be active. “I’m excited to be able to run something that big with all my friends and train with them for it,” said Senior, Darragh James.

The students interviewed, said they dread the training, but that all of the training will be worth it in the end.
