Run for God is an amazing program lead by a dedicated team who are truly Holy Spirit inspired. I have been leading a Run for God group for over 4 years now and I have seen it transform the health and hearts of many people which inspired me to further my education and become an RRCA Certified Coach. Even more importantly, Run for God has inspired me to deepen my faith and focus on developing a more personal relationship with my Heavenly Father. My improved physical, mental and spiritual health came in handy recently when I had to undergo open-heart surgery for a congenital defect. It was a complex procedure so I had to travel to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City from our home in Alabama for the surgery. That was outside my comfort zone to say the least! But through Run for God I had learned to seek Him first and hear His voice more clearly and because of it, I was able to receive the guidance and peace I very much needed. My Run for God family was there to support me through it all. I don’t know what I would have done without them! They really took to heart the commandment to “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34 and I am humbled and grateful.
The Run for God programs are well written and supported and improve the physical, mental and spiritual health of the participants while developing a special comradery. Many of my students return again and again and I know it’s not just because they love the sound of my voice! They get something special that you just can’t get through other running programs. One of my students recently started her own group on the other side of town. The two groups joined together to run an aid station at a local half marathon as a way to give back to our running community. At Run for God we learn just how deeply our Heavenly Father loves us and how to show that love to all those around us. Being a Run for God Instructor has been a tremendous blessing to me and I hope to continue to lead classes for many more years, as long as I am able.
