No Boundaries




 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!!

 Grace and peace,
