"Women can do more than they think they Can!"

"My goal has always been to introduce other people to running, they might accomplish something they never thought they could." ~Grete Waitz, Norwegian Marathon runner and former world record holder.
These women just ran their fist 5k (about 1.5 yrs. ago)

I found this quote today and it has been true for me the last two yrs.  I started Dallas.OR.Running.Club to help people see that they can do much more than they think they can.  I love working with the women that come.  I have had women come, walk, run, race, and drop out.  Even if it doesn't work out for everyone, it brings me great joy when a women comes and gets stronger and starts to realize she can do things she didn't think her body could.

I started running three years ago.  I have goon though lots of ups and lots of downs.  I have had more "bad" days and more "bad" races than "good."   I have had to work through several injuries from not always doing things right.  All-in-all, though the good and the bad, I just try and stay consistent and surround myself with people who keep me encouraged.  As I look back at the last three years on paper, I see how much stronger I have gotten from year to year.  It really does pay off!

Dallas.OR.Running.Club is open to all fitness levels, men and women (ages 13+ please).  We are currently meeting on Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm if you would like to check us out!  We are done by 8:00pm.  This is a free fitness club.  Be sure and bring a flashlight, it's dark out at this time now!
