The first step

In a new journey, or even the return to an old journey, the first step is often the hardest…

stepping out in my new/old Brook’s that I got on clearance several years ago. When I started my Journey For Life several years ago, it was a fundraiser for the LIFE conference my kids were going to. As I began to run i knew I’d need a good pair of running shoes, so I took my friend, Patrick Miller to the stunning shoe store. Patrick is an amazing runner and all around sweet kid and was happy to pick out a pair of shoes for my journey. He taught me things about running shoes I never knew were important. We selected several pair of shoes and I put the first ones on. They were soooooo comfortable…. I knew I loved them. But they were hot pink. I asked if they came in any other color, but they didn’t have any others in stock. So I bought my first pair of $150 running shoes ever. I even went back for a second pair. Then I watched for sales and bought two pair on clearance on line. Patrick wears his shoes out quickly because he puts so many miles on them. It will take me longer… but the first step is behind me! the good thing about them being so bright is that cars will see them if I run on the road. For now, I am content to run on my treadmill.

I’m 2 whole miles in. From my house, had I run on the road, I would be at one end of my road by now… here’s to 998 more miles.

If you look close, you will see the logo says, “run happy”. That I shall.

Be blessed, my friends, be blessed

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
