Team Willis is a name my husband, Nick, came up with in 2007. For those of you who don’t know Nick, or anything about him, he’s a runner. He’s pretty fast too. I met him in 2006 when he was already well into his professional running career. Sure, running is what we call an individual sport, but no successful runner is ever really alone. There are coaches, family members, doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, and friends who all contribute to the athlete’s endeavor.
This blog is about everyone who is a part of Team Willis. Nick is the athlete—and an incredibly hard-working and talented athlete at that—but there are many involved in his pursuit. As we look ahead to London 2012 and set our sights on gold there, we know that reaching that goal will require not an individual effort, but the effort of a strong, unified team.
