The Lord puts dreams in your heart for a purpose…LIVE THEM!
In the beginning…
Well actually the beginning started on the elementary school playground when I was too uncoordinated for any sports…except running!
My first taste of racing as an adult, was in 1993. I participated in the Corporate Challenge in Tulsa, OK.
Then life got busy & I forgot about running until I was at a business meeting in Atlanta, GA…looking out of my hotel window I saw a marathon of some sort…and the dream was birthed. I REALLY wanted to be down there with them in the freezing cold air, running through those downtown streets. Year after year I would say I was going to run the Vulcan in Birmingham, but never followed through…this time was different. The links below chronicle this year’s journey from the first grumpy step to the FINISH LINE(s)! :
