I NEVER thought I would say this, but I will be running the Detroit International Half Marathon on October 16th!!!!! Let's just say that running is not something that I necessarily enjoy. After joining Northridge church I had heard a little bit about LoveRuns. This year, it seems to be a cause that I can not seem to escape. Sexual violence is a cause that is very near and dear to my heart. After hearing about the organizations that LoveRuns supports, and how the money is used, it was something I just couldn't say no to any longer!!!! SexTrafficking is something I was so blind to, yet it happens in our back yards everyday. 13.1 miles of effort for me is nothing compared to the hell they live every day!!! As I was telling a truly cherished friend, Rachel, about what I was thinking about signing up for, and about the cause, she gave me some encouraging words that helped me make the decision. Later in that day, she walked by my office, with out stopping, I might add, and said..."13.1? I'm in!" and kept walking..... I am so grateful that as God wrote this cause on my heart, He also gave me someone crazy enough to jump in with me!!!
