When signing on to the ASA Wingman program as a “newbie” runner, I couldn’t help but wonder whether I had the patience, experience and/or ability to work with disabled youth in an endurance event. I can tell you now, having completed my first race with my very special athlete, that the undertaking was not only one from which I will benefit for a lifetime, but I can’t wait to do it again. The sense of pride and achievement, shared both by our Wingman team and our athlete, is difficult to put into words. I knew that the mission of Athletes Serving Athletes was to enrich lives, but only now appreciate that one of the lives being enriched was my own. Thanks, ASA, for everything you do!
