Sole to Soul Running is a very special kind of running/walking group. No matter what your fitness level, you'll find the support you need to accomplish goals you never thought were possible!

We offer support if you're just starting out or an experienced runner or walker. It's a great time to run -- or learn to run -- or walk. This group is for YOU; no matter what your pace or experience, we think you're perfect!  

 
Our Facebook page is your best source for up-to-date training and race information!

I'm not a certified coach or physician -- just someone who knows that running with wonderful people makes for a wonderful life.  Please see About Us for important information about my coaching skills (or lack thereof).  

Here's the thing:  It may start with the sole, but it changes the soul! 

We'd love for you to join us on our Saturday morning and race day adventures. See our Training Schedule each week for our meeting place and mileage.

Finding Your Mojo

When I first started to run, every step -- every minute -- was a victory. It was easy to feel accomplished; just getting out of bed and lacing up my shoes was an accomplishment.

When I was coming back from my injury, it was like starting over. Yet, it didn't feel the same. The short runs that felt victorious when I started felt like failures. The long runs that had felt impossible suddenly were. It was hard to even think about going for a run.


Where was my mojo?

Turns out, it was hiding -- hiding beneath unreasonable expectations and self-doubt -- hiding among thoughtst that I would NEVER think about other people -- hiding from hope.

So where do we find our motivation?

Whether we want to start running again or lose weight or get back in shape or even update an old blog post, it helps to remember that motivate really means "to move."

Once your goal is to take one step forward, momentum carries you two.  Two become four. One minute becomes one run. And one decision to accept yourself WHERE YOU ARE helps lead you to WHERE YOU WANT TO BE.

Today, I ask (beg, cajole, plead) you to be "at peace with your pace" in every way, not just on the route. Be kind to yourself with every little move you make. Celebrate each success.  Practice gratitude that you are moving at all!  Let yourself find a new pathway.  

And on that path, you will find new discoveries and an old friend: your mojo!  

You don't have to WANT to get up on Saturday morning.  Do it anyway.  You will never regret it.  I don't care how fast you go or far you travel. I want to see YOU on this incredible and sometime magical mojo mystery tour.

We wil find our motivation together.  And we will feel victorious!  Love you all!

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 adventure.

You can do this, too; please email me with questions!
