The last few weeks have brought some really incredible wins for our players. Check out a few of their accomplishments below, including a huge win by All-Star Meg and one by special player Mia Quinn!

Meg, All-Star (Epic Win: walk 20 miles in the Walk for Hunger on May 6th):

“Until I started walking, I would have told you that there was no way I could ever walk 20 miles in a day. Until mile 5, I would have told you that I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend my day walking. Until mile 9.5, I would have told you that the only reason I was walking was that there were other people walking with me. Until mile 11.5, I would have told you that the only reason I was walking was prove I could go farther than the one other teammate remaining. Until mile 14, I would have told you that mind was a complete blank. Until mile 16, I would have told you that my legs were going to cramp up too badly for me to finish. Until mile 17, I would have told you that the drums in my head were the only thing keeping me going. Until mile 18, I would have told you that I was stuck in a time loop and wasn’t really getting anywhere. Until mile 19, I would have told you that I had no idea why I was still going. Until mile 20, I would have told you that there was absolutely no way I could walk 20 miles. At mile 20, my life changed.”

Mia Quinn (Epic Win: wipe out social anxiety): “This past month I have done a lot to break down my social anxiety and really get myself out there. I have gotten closer with three great friends in my life and am making more efforts to make my connections stronger with people. I am really looking forward to keeping this up!”

Ryan G. (Epic Win: enjoy time with my children): “It’s amazing how little changes have afforded me quality time and future goals with my son!”

Andy T. (Epic Win: lower my cholesterol and reduce the risk of a heart attack): “I feel that i have shown great discipline and I am very pleased with myself. I would have liked to have shared it with many more Allies!”

Jenny F. (Epic Win: reach 179 lbs): “Just broke the 180 barrier and it feels good! No plans to get back up there again.”

Irena V. (Epic Win: take advantage of every day): “Oh, wow. It just were about noticing all the awesome people around me. I regained my self-esteem and started to be proactive. :)”
