Rebecca Thorne loves to run for it is a great escape from the anxiety and disorder. Into the hills of North Wales she galloped like a horse. The place was a family holiday but she used to run. It was a pretentious act of her being a horse but now when she is 40 her running has become structured.
Running makes her absorb life with its tensions better and with so much positivity it is a great exercise. It was the losses of personal relationships and the trauma which she had to suffer that led her 30 years to come out of the illness which was described as ‘mental’ condition.
It is the trail running which she was introduced to in her life that running became a part of her life in the Appalachians. It gave her a strong effect of the medicines without having to consume any medicine. Her life appears simpler because of running. Years passed by when she was debilitated through her condition. Her mind has this counter sensation where she feels that she is falling and there is no respite from it.
Racing up a mountain of 18 mile was her target initially and the ascent of 5300 feet ascent. She was a sprinter of 100 metres at school the task seemed to be daunting. But when viewed philanthropically this entire journey represented her life cycle and going by the magnitude she wanted the race to make her survive. She went in for training and had a partner with her during the weekends to accompany her which made the training even smooth. Her achievement came when she ran the full course without looking up and finally after she crossed the line the joy that she saw in her family’s face was impeccable

Willis might have earned maximum fame as a stellar runner but he is surely much more than that.
The Kiwi silver Olympic medalist & national-record holder is the crowning champion of Minneapolis, NY & Boston road miles. He has received much coveted Adidas sponsorship for Rio Olympics 2016 & is a much married dad of 10-month-old Lachlan, his son. Besides, along with Sierra, his better-half, Willis dons the role of co-director of August ten Track Classic Michigan that he devised in need of a chase prior to 2013 world championships.
The 31-year-old is originally a high school 4:01 miler from Lower Hutt community who first hit the US soil for running at NY Armory Track and Field Center whilst he was in teens. He later attended the Michigan University 7 presently has his base at Ann Arbor.
Little did he knew ion his first American trip that how much multi-tentacled, glorious and prolonged his athletics career would be. “I kind of looked it as one single race momentarily in my earlier days”, said Willis. “There were opportunities one after another which really excited me & I wished to have everything possible at the earliest.”
He & Nate Brannen- the Canadian Olympian & Nick’s college teammate who would be at track Classic Michigan this time – were roomies prior to a meeting at the Penn State region when one among the two asked the other-“hey do you feel that it is possible to run at a pro level? If you can what would you make of it?”
“I just felt that if I can somehow make 30,000 USD a year that would be adequate enough to cover up every expense & we won’t have to spend our days at basement anymore & then I would be able to train & race. It has been my goal always”, Willis added in.
Well, he has certainly lived up to his goal.
