Give Kindness

During this busy holiday season keep this in mind…..If you want to make a difference start giving kindness and compassion instead of an opinion. Give and spread love instead of judgement. This world has enough takers, be someone who gives nothing but joy to others!!! Start to believe there is good without seeing it! Hold on to hope and don’t ever let go!!!! #believe #michaelandersonstatue #kindnessmatters #lovewins #joy #compassion #handinhand

5 Years Ago

5 years ago today I finished my 300th marathon in Honolulu which was a huge goal to complete. I cranked out 14 more marathons in the following 3 years to retire with 314 lifetime marathons in October of 2019. It was an amazing 30 year running career with the last 80 marathons accomplished after my cancer diagnosis! I have found my new passion and challenge of reaching mountain peaks to be easier on my mind and body!!!! #challengeyourself #300lifetimemarathons #SurvivorStrong
