“Saturday April 8… The Gazelle Girl Preview run. What a beautiful day. Can I just say I was almost in tears, when I finished running 13 miles. That is the most I have ever ran at one time, thanks to all my Sole Sisters for all the encouragement and support. I would have never ran outside in the cold by myself. I am so thankful to be on this team. What an amazing group of women. In January, I was so afraid to run just 3 miles outside in the cold weather. The struggle was real. I had not ran since August, and then it was only 2 – 3 miles at a time. Now, 3 months later, I am running 13 miles. Wow, what an accomplishment. I would just like to encourage everyone to get moving. Whether that’s inside, outside, walk, run… it doesn’t matter. Just try to move everyday. I hope to see you all on the road on April 23rd. 2017.” -Ronda
