We Just Felt Like Running

We like fun. And, we like staying healthy.

Toyota Connected North America brings with it a clear respect for work-life balance. Sometimes, though, the two can – and should – intersect. That’s why we participated in this year’s J.P. Mogan Corporate Challenge, a 3.5-mile running event hosted in Downtown Dallas, among 15 other global locations, to promote corporate wellness.

And well, we did.

TCNA had 17 participants and finished with an average time of 35:15, which as of this writing is sixth locally among the 40+ local companies participating and 26th globally of more than 600 participating companies. More than 1,800 individuals participated in the run across the Dallas Metroplex.

TCNA doesn’t host just once-a-year fitness challenges. So far in 2024, we have hosted two months-long step challenges across both our Texas-based team and our remote team members, and we continue to host a weekly running club.

That, however, is a normal 5K – 3.1 miles. In preparation for next year’s J.P. Morgan race maybe – just maybe – we should add another four tenths of a mile.

We’ll take training for next time step by step.
