I was asked last week if I would help coach a beginners running program sponsored by Fleet Feet called No Boundaries. It is a program designed to get people from the couch to 5k ready in 10weeks.
My initial reaction was total shock and disbelief. I wondered if maybe they had mistaken me for someone else. Sometimes I feel like I'm a beginner myself! Once the initial shock wore off I was so honored that they would think of me. I met Traci and her husband last August at a midnight 5k and I have seen them at several races since then. I had no idea I had made any kind of impression on them. It feels good to have someone notice your hard work and dedication and want you to share it with others! I told them I would think and pray about it and get back to them. I talked it over with hubby and he thought it was a fantastic idea and agreed to watch the kids on the nights he is home. So I told them YES!
I started thinking about my goals for 2010 and I believe that God is revealing His plan to me little by little. I know that part of my purpose is to encourage and lift up others in health and fitness, more and more lately I have had the opportunities to do that.
I'm super excited and nervous. I have already signed up 4 friends that I have been begging to run with me! What an excellent journey I am on! I am very thankful for this opportunity and I am thankful to have the chance to see others change their life through running!!
