Training with Marathon Team Greece by Maria Polyzou

[Dream came true ALERT]

Hi friends 😀

I have the best new to share today! One of my dreams just came true yesterday evening!

At about 7:30pm I was invited to join my coach’s team for training at OAKA Olympic stadium – yeah yeah i might have gotten a little lost, but I finally got there!

It was an incredible experience! Meeting my running hero ❤ She is such a wonderful person, an amazing athlete and down to earth individual. She cares a lot about all of her runners and she is fully aware of their capabilities/injuries/strengths and weaknesses.

I joined the team and we all run together! The team spirit and support was incredible! This team is like a family, and they are ready to welcome anyone who loves running as much as they do!

Honestly, I have no words to describe how I felt when I met Maria… I was speechless (yes me… I know it almost never happens LOL 😛 )… Running along a legend!

I will know that I am not (EVER) running alone anymore!
