I started running in 2000, entering 5k’s and even a half marathon. Then one day I stopped.
I started running again in April 2010 as a way of dealing with the grief over losing my 12 year old son, Andrew. He was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer in August 2009 and left our home for his heavenly one on December 15, 2009. I consider the ability to run a gift from God.
I’ve entered several 5k’s, a midnight 10k and am training for my second half marathon.
I wear Vibrams and Asics and run 3 – 8 miles 5 – 6 days a week.
Some days I don’t feel like running and those are the days I push myself to do it anyway.
“We run in order to practice not quitting.”

I blog about running and interview other moms who run at See My Mom Run. Just click on the pic to go there.
Run With Endurance
I am the leader of a local Run With Endurance (RWE) chapter for women who walk and run for fitness. It is open to any woman at any fitness level. We meet at a local park one morning a week for a 35 – 40 minute run (or walk) followed by a short (20 minutes) Bible Study. Together we can develop our physical and spiritual endurance one step at a time. If you live in the Tampa Bay area and are interested in being a part of RWE, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put RWE in the subject line.
RWE Mission: To equip women to be who God created them to be by building endurance physically and spiritually to run their personal race.
