Team Health Shoppe.jpgFor the 12 years that Missie Gregory has been running, she had not participated in a team relay. That all changed in September when she and husband Tim joined Jeff Colfer, Mark Hickey, Jeff Colfer Jr., and myself to lead Knoxville’s Team Health Shoppe to a first place overall finish in the Colonial 70 Relay.

Averaging a 7:04 per mile pace, Team Health Shoppe set a new course record as they finished in 9:06:54. Second place went to Buns on the Run with a time of 9:30:01.

Hollman,_Lena.jpg___5.jpgWe are runners, therefore we run! Or in other words, running is how we prefer to spend the time we set aside for exercise. For some of us it may be the only exercise we get, especially if we are on a tight schedule. We keep on running year after year, and then one day we are stopped in our tracks because of an injury.
