Miron Construction Co., Inc. has been the volunteer sponsor for the Community First Fox Cities Marathon for more than a decade, but this year we’re stepping up our support by becoming the presenting sponsor. In honor of our new title, we’ll be sharing “MIRUN” stories on our blog and social media channels leading up to race day, including how our own employees are getting ready to run, walk or volunteer and tips on making the most of the marathon weekend experience.
While Miron will have multiple employees participating in race weekend events, we’ll specifically be following Ashley, a first-time half marathoner, and Jim, a “born-again” marathoner, in a series of videos and testimonials as they prepare for the race. Click here, to view the first video—“Building Anticipation.” Ashley and Jim will be “Building Foundations” and “Building Zen/Tranquility” in our very own Miron Wellness Center and “Building Nutrition” at Festival Foods. Our friends at Orthopedic & Sports Institute (OSI) will help Jim and Ashley with “Building Strength,” and on race day, they will be set to show how Miron’s mission of “Building Excellence” applies to more than just construction.
It’s obvious that Ashley and Jim are excited for the months that lie ahead. As Ashley explains, “I am definitely a first timer! I can proudly say that I can run six miles now as part of a regular routine but I still have a lot of work to do. I know how important strength training, stretching and rest days are and I need to make sure that I create a good routine that best suits me.”
We had a wonderful decade supporting Marathon volunteers as they ensured the weekend events ran smoothly, and now we look forward to attending the Community First Fox Cities Marathon presented by Miron Construction.
