Watch Now: Team FDC Trains For Miami Marathon

(VIDEO: Team FDC Miami prepares for the 2015 Miami Marathon and Half Marathon)

They kick off their training sessions before dawn on Saturdays. Runners and walkers of all ages, shapes, sizes and athletic abilities. They all have a common goal: to finish the 2015 Miami Marathon and Half Marathon. While some train to lose weight or increase their overall health and fitness level, many are running for very personal reasons.

Under the leadership of Ralph Fernandez de Castro and Team FDC Running Club, hundreds of participants have been training since September to get in shape for the race. Baptist Health South Florida is a sponsor of the Miami Marathon and Half Marathon as well as Team FDC. As the group tapers their training, Fernandez de Castro tries to appease any self doubts runners may have about the big race.
