Rock N Roll Country Music 1/2 Marathon in Combat Boots

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]ne of the lessons I’ve learned along my journey to Get Uncomfortable is that everyone has a story. Every single person out there on the course no matter their age or fitness ability, they all have their own reasons for being there. Some are there for the experience and the challenge, while others are there to pay it forward by running for someone other than themselves.

I had the great honor of meeting some amazing people at the Country Music Marathon. It really was a life altering day, I feel so much more connected and thankful for the ability to do what I do. Every event I participate in keeps me wanting to move and do more for humanity. When I started on my Get Uncomfortable journey in 2008, I was doing it for cancer research in honor of several family members. Now with my son serving in the United States Marine Corps, my passion and drive is to give back and give thanks to those who give their lives for us everyday.

I really hope this video along with all the others I post will some how inspire you to go out and live your own story and to share that story with others. WE all have the ability to inspire and empower others to live out their best life.


If you enjoy this video I encourage you to share this post with others. I would also love to hear your own personal stories; so please leave your comments below.

If you would like to join me in Getting Uncomfortable for our troops you can do so by purchasing your own pair of combat boots at The Boot Campaign. Proceeds from the boots goes to military charities. You can also make a financial contribution to my Crowdrise campaign. Proceeds from that also go to benefit The Boot Campaign & Not Alone.
