Divine Intervention...

...that is exactly what happened this morning as I left for my run! I saw a couple walking in front of the house with "race for the cure" t-shirts on, so I commented about liking them and that I was a survivor. Her daughter, who has been through the ringer with breast cancer, and her daughters have moved here from Seattle to live with them. I gave her my card and told her to have her call me.

I have wanted to get a group together and this morning just motivated me more to get it done! I am going with Meli to Hilton Head Friday for a few days, so I will take that time to make a plan. Meli is a great planner, so I know it will be huge to have her input.

I do believe, more than ever, that God put me in this position for a reason. I have been told that I never meet a stranger and can talk to anyone about anything, so it is high time I put those talents to good use. It is time to walk the walk instead of just talking the talk.

Everyone have a wonderful week. If you are, or know someone who is, affected by breast cancer and live in the Clarksville, TN area, please contact me. I want to have a group together and ready to meet by September. We especially don't need to go into the dreary winter months without a positive network of awesome women (and men!) to turn to when needed.

Love you all and happy running!


P.S. I saw a picture from the 4th of July run of myself and I swear it looks like I have a ponytail!! The is a woman behind me and you can't see anythying except her hair...of course, that must mean she is incredibly tiny in order for me to hide her!! lol lol
