Where Running and Life Intersect

I’ve been a runner for over over 25 years.  It’s a huge part of my life. So when I started having knee pain a couple summers ago to the point that I couldn’t run, it was devastating.  At first I thought I had torn something and when I realized I had not, I was thrilled.

But then I got what was likely worse news and that was when the doctor looked at me and simply said “You have bad knees”.

He then told me I would have to learn to “manage” them.

A Glimpse into my Planner – What Happened in May

I got a new planner this year and so I started a series that I’m titling “A Glimpse Into My Planner”.
Each month* I’m giving you a glimpse of what’s been happening, because I now keep EVERYTHING in this planner since there is a space for EVERYTHING.

May recap

Just to recap:
Each day not only has lines for my to do list, it also has 3 sections that I love:  
  • The Big 3 – This helps me prioritize.  What 3 things MUST I get done today?
  • Wellness – Daily workouts.
  • Gratitude – 3 things for which I’m grateful on that given day.
I also make note of things the Lord shows me during my daily quiet time.  
This new planner has reduced my desk by 3 books, and I have it all in one place and I love it.  I also love going back through my month to see what worked, what didn’t, what I got done, what I still need to do and so on.

Let’s take a look back at May…

3 Reasons Why I Wrote a Book + a Christmas Giveaway

I went into a local business recently, and someone I hadn’t seen in awhile asked me what I’d been up to.  I said “I wrote a book!”

I wrote a book

On September 18, 2017, I published “40 Days of Faith and Fitness”.  If you had told me in January, or even in May, that I would add “author” to my bio in 2017, I would not have been able to imagine that.  

Now, how many of us wouldn’t like to write a book?
