The Blake Team Run: Aiming High at the Inaugural REVEL Rockies Marathon & Half 2014

The long wait is over!

On August 17, 2014, a group of running enthusiasts, marathon newbies and veterans, risk takers and the toughies at heart (we’re talking about a marathon, people!) took center stage at the inaugural REVEL Rockies Marathon & Half.

As opposed to a city race, the REVEL Rockies got people running outside the bustling urban zone and into the enjoyable views of nature. How awesome was that to be running miles on end with the best of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, mountain lakes, beautiful canyons, and the Mile High City?! The race was part of the REVEL Race Series and is considered a qualifying race for the acclaimed Boston Marathon. So participants rocked big time for joining one of the premier running courses in the West!

The Blake Team-Keller Williams, a full-service real estate team in Denver specializing in Buyers and Sellers, foreclosures, short sales, and luxury properties was right in the middle of the jam-packed action on Sunday. Lisa Blake, CEO & Founder of The Blake Team and a top-producing agent in Colorado, and her daughter, Whitney Hill were among thousands of attendants.

The downhill nature of the Revel Marathon and Half descending about 4,000 feet from start to finish was not an easy feat. But The Blake Team was the embodiment of resilience, determination, and enthusiasm, running at their best performance and finishing the race! So kudos to the mother and daughter tandem! If you can’t believe how anyone could run and have the most fun while on a race, these Blake Team women of power sprinted to the finish line with a huge smile on their face!

The REVEL Rockies Marathon & Half is more than just a hub for the marathon fans and supporters, but it is also a celebration of goodwill being an event for a cause. The marathon was a valuable partner to several non-profit groups focused on environmental and health advocacy to benefit local communities in Evergreen, Colorado. A portion of each participant’s entry fee will be donated to local causes. The Blake Team took this opportunity to heart as a way of giving back for the successes it has garnered consistently over the years. So off went Lisa and Whitney on the run of their life and brought home the bacon by being finishers of the half marathon in a little over 2 hours!

Their passion and focus were motivators to the rest of  The Blake Team. What an inspiration too for mothers and daughters, friends, and couples to do something great together, overcome obstacles, and share in the victory!
