The Most Amazing Runners Ever!
Sun, October 30, 2011 | link
Yesterday's training was filled with many gifts:
We had Martha, Irene and Lisa join us for the first time --
and everyone did so great. How fun to see people on the first step of their journey!
When I finished my part
of the runner, I was touched to see how how many people waited (see our new photo on Facebook). This is really what
Sole to Soul is all about, helping and encouraging each other succeed.
I loved our pre-dawn run with some of our
Vegas runners, and my heart fills when I think how close Val is to her first Half!
I love all the boys (okay,
men) that our running with us: Steve, Chris and Wayne (and baby Evan, too). We are all ages, all different in
many ways, but we share a common goal, and it's wonderful!
Thank you all for being a part. You have my love,
admiration and support always. See you all next Saturday!

Yes! You, too, can complete a half-marathon!
On Oct. 29, we'll start a brand-new training cycle, designed for anyone who would like to get started (or re-start) and be
ready to complete a half-marathon in 2012.

Begin with us now, and you'll be ready -- as a runner or walker
-- for the new San Diego Half-Marathon in March -- or Hollywood or La Jolla in April -- or Safari Park in May.
an amazing feeling to have accomplished this goal, although I warn you that you could become addicted!
you can start jogging a minute or two for every few minutes you walk. Or think about walking, but increasing your mileage.
We will be there for you -- at any pace.
You'll love the medals, but you'll love the way you feel about yourself
for earning them even more. Love to you all! JM

Our runners and walkers are doing GREAT!
We had a little bit of a break with our backdown week on Oct. 1, but
we're starting to learn just how much our training is paying off.
Please do not fear the longer mileage; our goal
is to find a pace that let's you finish strong and proud.
If you're thinking about signing up for 2012 run, a
complete new training cycle will start on Oct. 29. Don't wait, though, we're ready to give you amazing support now.
And speaking of support, thank you for all of yours -- for both the weekend I was home when my grandson was borh (he's
coming home from the NICU this week!!!) and for joining me for the Shamu & You Family Walk to support Rady Children's
Hospital-San Diego. You are all true Solemates!
Many of our members joined Sole to Soul to
train for their first 1/2 marathon. Most of us never thought that running 13.1 miles was even possible when we first
started training but, together, we learned that we could do it.
Our running motto is "At Peace With My Pace." I believe
that with encouragement and support, you can cross the finish line -- still upright, smiling and ready to sign up for another
can do this, too; please email me with questions!
