After over ten years of being a staff member of the Y, Andrew and Sarah Homan had a sudden realization. 

"We had been working for the Y for over ten years but never let the Y help us," said Andrew. "We were not eating well or working out."

Andrew and Sarah started working out regularly and decided in they would run one 5K race together each month.

"It was kind of like our date weekend," said Andrew. 

Running a race 11 out of the 12 months in a year, they decided to raise the bar and run the Daffodil 5K Challenge (four 5K races in one day) to prepare for the Disney Half Marathon.

"The Daffodil 5K Challenge was a benchmark," said Andrew. "If we can do this, then we can do the next race."

Andrew hopes to pass on the healthy lifestyle to their two boys who are currently involved in swimming lessons at the Y.
