Every Mile Matters

Every Mile Matters Amber Hadigan May 11, 2013. I laced up my running shoes for the first time. I was 204 pounds and wore a size 18 pants. I downloaded a couch to 5K app, as I had signed up for a 5K race exactly eight weeks later as motivation. That day, I could hardly […]

Every Mile Matters

EVERY MILE MATTERS by Angie Webb As a child I loved to run, but I hated running.  Give me a basketball or soccer ball and I could run for hours.  Tell me to go and run a mile and I wouldn’t do it.  In Junior High School I played on the basketball, soccer and softball […]

Every Mile Matters

EVERY MILE MATTERS by Perry Newburn When I put my hand up to write this I thought “this should be straight forward,” but the more I thought about it – yes dangerous this thinking lark – the harder it became. So where to start? I’ve written about my battles with addiction in the past but […]

The Way to Joy

When the going gets tough… In 2009 I hit the lowest point of my life… I looked around and said, “I don’t have the strength to do this anymore.” I had everything, a loving husband, loving children, four beautiful grandsons and twin grandbabies on the way. But nothing seemed worth “it”. Life was a struggle, […]
