Everybody has a story. Each story is touching, inspiring, motivating in its own way. Sometimes, stories are told, heard and retold at a time when we can relate to the most. At times, you may hear a story and give it a passing thought and other times the story grabs you. It holds you and forces your wheels to start turning and your heart to feel. I LOVE reading running stories, or stories about overcoming an obstacle. They all always leave me feeling captivated and emotional however, today's story left me with a feeling of extreme awe. It was because of this story, that I sat down one summer night with nothing but the crickets chirping and a cool breeze blowing and put my story into words. My story has now been retold a few times through out the Facebook running page community. It has been featured on Movin' It with Michelle Running, Recipes and Real Life Adventures and put into the shit sorter files on No More Mr. Fat Guy but the reason it was even written in the first place was because I found Runner Unleashed. She has a Facebook page and a blog that are completely awesome, motivating, inspiring and helpful. Please read her story and then head over and give some love and check out her stuff you will not be sorry!!!
