            Marathon High is an organization that all people should join. I joined Marathon High because it’s helps people learn how to run, teaches people improve their running. I joined Marathon High in October 2013. I didn’t know how to run but they welcomed me and made me part of their family. Infact for them they don’t care whether you lose or win. What matters to them is that did you enjoy your run. When I came to USA, I was upset because I have left my friends behind but when I joined Marathon High I was no longer upset but glad that I came to USA because I have got a lot of caring friends in Marathon High than I have ever imagined.

            When we are doing our run, we always learn something new. I didn’t think that I can run 3 miles but when I did with Marathon, I learn’t that I can run more than 3 miles; and it’s true on I can even run 18 miles.

            Since I have run 18 miles, now I want to run 26 miles and I know it’s possible as long as I ask help from Marathon High.

In conclusion, I saw that Marathon High is the best organisation I have ever joined.
