On Sunday November 10th, Amee Kent (Red e App Marketing Director) and I finished the Louisville Sports Commission half marathon. I had never run a half marathon before and knew I wanted (read, needed) someone to help me train for the race and to encourage me while running it.
Why did I want to run a half marathon? I had never run that far before and wanted to push myself.
I like the motto: “You’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did”.
Do I regret running the race? Not a chance. The weather was great (mid 50s and sunny), the fall foliage was amazing, and I honestly thought about walking the last few miles because I was tired and sore BUT thankfully, I wasn’t running alone and Amee kept cheering me on to finish strong. The fact that I had someone right beside me chatting with me and laughing at my silly jokes while running was a tremendous motivation to just keep going.
Will I run another half marathon? Yup! I already put the Kentucky Derby miniMarathon on my calendar for next year and I’m inviting other members of team Red e App to join me. Why? I like a challenge and love training and working as a team.
I’ve learned over the course of the past few years at Red e App that I’m at my best when innovating, building, and working with a team. Even now as I write this blog post, I’m simultaneously working with our Engagement team (Erin and Hannah) to create a private mobile network for a new client filled with specific Content and Files that will make this new client more efficient and effective for internal communication.
In fact, you could almost think of Red e App as the half marathon support team for your company. We run alongside you and encourage you during the on-boarding of our technology for your company. And, most importantly, we connect your entire organization so that ALL employees can now communicate privately via mobile and as a result, foster a culture of real-time collaboration and feedback that your employees have always needed and that you as the Operations, HR, and Management level employee have always wanted.
Ready to run with us? We’re Red e!
