How did we get here? May 8th, I underwent the knife for the 4th time in 8 years to fix my leg. The issue this time?....the hardware is too long, it sticks up 1.5 Inches above my hip bone and it is shredding my IT band and my muscles in my gluteus. It also is affecting my back and my quad because I am over compensating. (Just think how many times we do this in business.)

To be honest, initially I was finding all these ways in my head to figure out how to do nothing. The thought of another surgery, another recovery, and having to rely on others for help again, is just not what I wanted. It’s no different than how I feel when I know I need to make a change in business.... don’t want to take a step back to step forward....and then all the sudden I have a few good days and I start questioning myself about whether I really need to make a change.

So in order to make myself feel better, Denny suggested a goal to focus on instead of the surgery, the pain, and the recovery.... I had to DECIDE when would be my next run. I didn't have to know how I was going to get there, just had to make a decision. Denny and I considered my recovery time and the locations that would be available to run once recovered and we decided on PF changs rock and roll, my favorite race of all time, January 19 & 20th in Phoenix.

QUESTION: Would some of you be willing to join me and run with me and Denny January 19-20th in Phoenix? I know what you are thinking, I have never run before. Just because you have never run before, doesn’t mean you can’t....now wait, wait, wait...you can follow my mentor Jeff Galloway’s method, which is a run walk. You run for a period of time and then you walk. We will run for 3 mins and walk for 1. It does a lot of things for you when you run/walk this way. It helps you finish strong instead of slowing down at the end, it also reduces the lactic acid build up in your muscles so you aren’t so sore the next day, and you will actually run faster than if you ran the whole thing.

I know that growth is always built on a series of wins, so let me throw this out to you all....PF Changs rock and roll marathon, January 19 & 20th, 2019..... There is a 5K, 10K, half marathon and full marathon. Choose one of the runs and make the decision to join me?

Please consider helping a sister out. I don’t like asking for help, but I am asking now. Come be part of something special!

Tabatha Adams saw the longer version of this post on FB the day before my surgery and within 24 hours, when I came out of surgery, she had already put together a private FB page on the PF Changs Rock n Roll marathon and invited friends to come and join. And here we are!!! ThANK YOU TABATHA
