Running Highlights

Although as runners, we are reduced to bib numbers and timing chips from local sponsors and officials, and even as each event is an individual race with our own mind and body, there is something very spiritual that happens once we hit the pavement and run. As I noted, we may be just a number to most, but there is one entity that we are not considered just a number… God. For the past year and a half, I have had the privilege and honor of running with some amazing people. I write that I have been training for the past year and a half because I have had to endure injury after injury that inhibited me from running. But due to my tenacity, faith, competitiveness, and just plain stubbornness, I have mustered up enough courage to continually train for half marathon status. Now I have hopes to complete my first full marathon in Canada this September. For all of those that are reading this now, I have to say, if I can commit to running and reaching marathon status, anyone can do it! I recently lost 20 pounds which also has motivated me to continue to train harder. I completed my first half marathon this past November; and just recently my 5th in Pasadena, California. Within a 4 month time frame, I widdled my time from 2:37, down to 2:16. I recently placed 10th in my age division in a local 10k. I endeavor to continue helping other beginner runners with their endurance, and pacing them as they desire to meet their personal running goals. I love the look on people’s face, and the high fives of everyone that I help, as they meet their personal running goals. Knowing, but not gloating, that I helped them reach their destiny!
