Run with Me FAQ
What is Run with Me Team?
Run with Me Team members accepted the challenge to sign up for a 5K
race to celebrate the tenth anniversary of TSA. Through preparing for and actually running in the 5K races, the Run
with Me Team promotes and encourages physical fitness. It is a virtual
team. Everybody selects his/her own 5K race in his/her area and signs up
for it there.
We are drawn together by our shared belief in the power of running to
improve health, fitness, and overall well-being. In addition to finding
running enjoyable, we share at least one other thing in common: the
pride of working for the TSA.
We want to inspire others to go beyond their comfort zone, test the
waters of a 5K, cross a finish line, and live life to the fullest.

No. All Run with Me Team members participate in this initiative during

it requires obsessive amounts of training to meet the demands.
