I remember this moment like it was yesterday -- and really it was early October 2011. I traveled to Chicago with my husband to cheer him and many others on while they ran the Marathon to support World a charity. While at this pep rally the night before the marathon, I was moved beyond any of my limitations to rise to new levels so much bigger than myself to run for reasons greater than myself. You see, while there were many trained Marathon Runners like my husand, there were probably more like myself in that room -- just a family member who came to the Marathon to support and cheer for my family. However, for the first time in my life, I felt as if I could do this thing -- I could actually train for a Marathon because it wasn't about me -- it was about running to raise money for a charity. The stories I heard that eveniny tugged on my heart strings and it just didn't go away. It wasn't even about the running -- it was about raising money for a charity and the amazing opportunity to give to those in need something they could never repay......it was the purest form of giving -- a true gift. I wanted to challenge myself to do something that was totally not on my bucket list. In fact, as one who loves to power walk -- I had never felt the urge to just go out and run....at least not until this particular evening....when I knew with God's strength -- I could do this thing.
