Gratitude

Posted by Briana Boehmer on Nov 22, 2017 2:09:36 PM

I remember distinctly when I was a little girl my father constantly telling me to say “thank you” and be grateful for what I had rather than dwell on what I didn’t have. While I know I said thank you often, the concept of deep gratitude is not as easy as saying a few words.

Posted by Run The Edge on May 23, 2017 9:44:43 AM

One year ago, Angela Flanagan was at her lowest. Her self esteem was as absent as her energy, she felt horrible, and was extremely overweight. As she looked down at her new baby she wondered how she would ever be able to keep up and be the mother she wanted to be.

The Hard is What Makes it Great

Posted by Briana Boehmer on May 23, 2017 9:37:19 AM

So many things in life are simply put — hard. Not much comes easy. Intuitively, we know this  to be true, yet we often see people reaching for a way to debunk this almost natural law of the universe. And why should we expect anything to come easy anyway? Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own explained “It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.” Can’t argue with you on that one Tom, well said.

Two and a half years ago, Barbara Rausch had a routine of dropping her son off at cross country practice and walking for the duration of his practice to fill the time. Each time she would leave for her walk the head coach would ask if she wanted to join the kids for practice. “Is he nuts?”, she thought. “How can a 46-year old woman run with a bunch of high schoolers?”

What's Your Why?

Posted by Run The Edge on May 23, 2017 9:35:08 AM

When our friend Andy Clarke posts in our Facebook groups, we know that it will inspire everyone to get involved. Last week he posted the following:

"Why did you do it Wednesday" - Why did you start your fitness journey? Why do you love to run/wog or walk? Why do you want to go farther? Why do you want to go faster? Tell me WHY!!
For me it was only about the fitness benefits and then I met all of you. I have enjoyed this group so much and enjoy trying to help others as best as I can. It is also great for killing time when your kids are grown and out of the house!!

You Are An Inspiration!

Posted by Run The Edge on May 23, 2017 9:34:16 AM

You are an inspiration! You might not be aware of the impact you have on those around you, but the fact that you have made fitness a priority in your life inspires others. When they see what you are doing, they start to believe that they can do it too.

"The bigger you dream, the bigger the challenges you take, the more inspirational you become!"

Miles of Memories

Posted by Run The Edge on May 23, 2017 9:31:24 AM

 

Hobby + Passion + Creativity = Miles of Memories

My husband, Jim, has always been active in swimming and biking and had been encouraging (bugging) me for years to take up a sport we could do together. When our son left for college in 2010 we bought road bikes and have been in love with the sport ever since. It has opened up a whole new world for us to explore.

There’s an Athlete In Each of Us

What is an athlete? Can you spot one from across the parking lot? Can you tell by a person’s size, how they look, what clothes they wear, or by the way they walk?

Meet Andrew Clarke, a beloved, hilarious, treasured part of the Run The Edge community who has participated in a number of our virtual fitness challenges. He is kind, encouraging, and motivational. Andrew weighed over 525 pounds when he started his weight loss journey.
