14 members of Team AMP came out for a Unity Run at Marina Del Rey on Sat, Jan 12th. All of the runners reached milestone long runs from 4.5 miles for a first-timer to 16 miles! Team members encouraged each other as each person pushed through their limits to reach their goal mileage. Bodies were sore and feet were aching at the end of the morning, but spirits were high as everyone looked forward to the 2013 LA Marathon.
