Daunting Challenges

I was recently asked a question about overcoming challenges in an interview and thought I’d share my answer here in the blog. : ) Enjoy!   What do you do to prepare for a challenge so daunting, like MS Run the US? I focus on three tasks at a time.  I think life in general can be daunting if you…

Loving Support

One of the most important lessons I feel God is teaching me this year is to meet people where they are and to love them where they are at. For myself, I know that I am strong-willed and focused. I love self-development and growth, and I understand that both are never-ending processes of change. But change isn’t easy…at first. Once…

Above all…love each other deeply.

Above all, love each other deeply…for love covers a multitude of sins. – 1 Peter 4:8 This past week we remember greatly how strong love can actually be. Many things are happening in the lives of the relay runners, but this week I find a similarity in Michelle’s story (our current runner) and my story..the thing that ties them together…

Bring On The Mojo

My car wouldn’t start, but it just didn’t bother me.  I had just got done aiding Adam with a Snickers bar & Coca-cola at his 12-mile stop when I went to start the car and all I got was the familiar click-click-click of a dead battery.  I left the lights on.  I got out and screamed to Adam a half…

Wavering Believer

Lean not on your own understanding… I have that reminder on a travel mug I bought a few months back.  I have a strong and growing relationship with God, so yes I believe He has my best interest in mind.  Things have always worked out better in the past, so yes, I believe that the paths I’m on lead to…

To Vegas and Beyond

Entering into Las Vegas was a whirlwind of positive emotions and continued Relay obstacles for myself and runner Jay Rawlings. The city marked the end of his journey and the beginning of Segment 3 with runner Adam Towle. Though Jay had to battle with the route and his injuries almost the entirety of his week, as we crested the hill…

Break the Body. Heal the Soul.

Just like that, Chellie’s segment of the Relay is over. It’s hard to believe that 6-days of her running back to back to back marathons has gone by so quickly, but it’s done and past. Segment two runner, Jay Rawlings, and his family have already arrived with the game plan set for some early, cool miles tomorrow morning. Though I…

Ready, Set, GO!

I can’t believe it’s Day 4 on the road and I haven’t even had time to update you since our Vegas tire, Haboob, fog storm delays as Aaron and I made our way to LA! What a hectic way to start the Relay. But really, it was unexpected so that’s what I should have expected. One of the reasons we…

live life to the fullest

Today was supposed to be Marathon Monday…an exciting day that kicked off the Boston Marathon, as well as our beloved MS Run the US relay in LA. Runners all around were both anxiously awaiting as it marks a very special day…not only for the 16 runners apart of MS Run the US and support team, but as well for the…

A Big Year

My deadline was quickly approaching.  I had set a goal.  By the end of September 2012 I imagined I would have a mass of runners to choose from to run the Relay.  We had 22 spots available for runners to apply for.  It would be great.  Every runner would want to do this! Then why did I only have 7…
