when you are having fun! This has been a tremendous last few weeks for GOTR of Happy Valley. With Carol's and my attendance at training in Charlotte we really had our minds and hearts filled with everything GOTR!
i know this blog is about my personal journey to get back in my sneakers BUT I can't share the aches and pains of my 36yr old knees without telling you how cool it was to meet everyone at GOTR International. The creation of our council now seems so real! Our first 2 hours of training was spent with Molly Barker, the founder of GOTR. She's so normal, she's so sweet and funny, she's open and approachable! We want her to come visit our girls when we get up and running! We were inspired, we were touched to the center of us with the heartfelt love she has for what she does and the complete commitment she has to making a difference in the lives of young girls. Being a part of something bigger than ourselves, being a part of creating an avenue for girls to learn to like themselves is an enormous responsibility with an enormous capacity for joy! That's what has made me get out of bed each morning and get on that treadmill!
I'm up to 2 miles a day on the treadmill and another 2 miles walking my pooches. So, here I come girls we will do this 5k together!!
