Carolyn: To Inspire You

May 21, 2013

Some of you may remember a few years ago that my running partner and I decided we wanted to encourage women in our community to run the mini-marathon. We planned to train with them and run with them every step of the way. That’s when I met Carolyn. I ran with her a few times, but it was very apparent she didn’t need me! She was so mentally strong and so positive…

Let’s jump ahead a little bit…

She ran the mini with her husband. She did great. She then signed up for a FULL marathon and completed her training while I was training for my marathon. Almost every Saturday, we’d pass each other. It was so fun to see her smile, exchange a few words, and laugh about the snacks she had stowed away for fuel during the duration of her run. I knew she looked great. I knew she felt healthy. I knew she was an amazing woman.

I was thrilled when she scheduled a session with me. Although it was outside of my business focus, I thought her story was an important one. It was authentic. It was dream-filled. It was a story of healing, hard work, and a positive attitude. I was excited to capture it.


Let’s jump ahead another two years…

Here’s what Carolyn said, “This is my 4 year anniversary of the epiphany that changed my life. My mission and ministry to the women I am blessed to serve is that we are created to live courageously and challenge the media images of what true beauty is. I have a few young people whom I mentor into having a healthy relationship with their body and to use their fitness, athleticism and exercise as acts of service and worship to God.

I wear a bracelet that has a quoteby e.e. Cummings. It says, ‘It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.’ There is no perfect. There is only the path that God is leading you in to bring honor and glory to Him. Despite the mess we perceive our attempts to be, we do nothing great, we serve a great God.”

I trust you’re inspired!
