“The miracle isn’t that I finished.  The miracle is that I had the courage to start.”
~John Bingham
This past Saturday, my son Jeremy and I embarked on our second 5K for the year!  We signed up for the Lisa Wade 5K in Westernport, MD.  I read on a local website that participation was over 300 which was a 20% increase in last year’s participants!  I thought this was amazing, not only in support
 of such a worthy memorial event, but also that more people are recognizing their own personal desire to try something new and be adventurous in this one time opportunity of life!
I was excited to see members of our 5K prep class there along with alumni from the first 5K class!  Members of our Center for Clinical Resource included George Williams and Dale Ann Howes!  It is great to participate in an event with supportive friends and family!
Kudos to Dale Ann who completed an amazing run and placed second in her age group!  Determination and perseverance is everything!
With each run, we can set our goals higher and raise the bar for not only personal success but for the representation of everything an individual can accomplish at every age!  While we ran our 5K, all ages were represented – little girls with pigtails would just fly past everyone effortlessly as if wings were really attached to their shoes. Those in the older age groups visibly pushed past their own personal limitations; taking that risk to challenge themselves and each other to their own personal greatness!
Let the journey continue and more races be run!
