Be Still and Hold

  There are times God puts us in a mandatory “time out” for a bit. It was a normal Saturday with tasks laid out before us. The day before I had picked up a load of mulch to finish the Ninja Course play area to make the it safer in the event of a fall…  like a fall would ever […]

Did I Really Just Run Every Day for a Year?

Did I really just run every day for a year?  When I attended my first Momentum Run class, I would have easily – hands down – been elected “LEAST likely to complete a run challenge.” I whined about everything from strength training to breathing, and I especially whined at the mere thought of getting up […]

Not the running type, but always a runner

I am not the running type. I was never a college or high school athlete. I never even played a sport in elementary school.
