JoAnne's story of how she came to run, in JoAnne's words
A little over two years ago my husband of 26 years died of cancer. I was devastated. We had a wonderful marriage and of course thought we would be together forever. As I am sure you can imagine this was a very difficult time for me and my family. I wasn't motivated to do more then go to work, come home, have a glass of wine or two, eat dinner and go to bed.Towards the end of that year I tried to get on consistent exercise program but I was not motivated. So on top of everything else I had gained unwanted weight and I just did not feel good physically or emotionally. Then I met a wonderful man, Mike R. (also a widower) who understood exactly how I felt. He had taken the No Boundaries class twice and suggested we do it together. Thanks to Mike, you and Fleet Feet, I will achieve my goal of running a 5K on March 17th. I feel so much better. I am energized, feel stronger and have a new perspective after meeting so many wonderful people who have overcome adversities and have found running a form of therapy.
Can't wait for the next class!
