Support Team

Bennett Mielke - Crew Team I have run for Bennett for over three years at #irun4. When things get tough, I can always rely on Bennett to keep me going. Over the years, when the suffering sets in, I think of how much Bennett would like to be right there with me and knowing that allows me to appreciate living in the moment, embracing the pain, and squeezing every ounce out of every experience, and never, ever giving up or giving in. Bennett will keep me going when nothing and no one else can.
