Tiny Miracles

If any of you from my "past life" (i.e. Before Noah) are still out there, you may remember my Idea, namely a team to train, empower, and raise money for survivors of domestic violence. Its never left me.

Ironically, when I started back to work at the children's theatre in October, another woman who used to act with me "back in the day" started back again as well. Her "day job" is as a counselor for a local organization that helps women extricate themselves and heal from violent relationships. I told her my idea and she liked it so much she told her supervisor. Her supervisor was enthusiastic about the possibilities and sent me her contact information. I have a meeting with her at the end of this month.

Tri-Hubby is in telecommunications sales and met a woman across the river in Illinois who runs a similar organization. He told her about my idea. She was also intrigued and I have her contact info - I'm waiting until TH gets back to her about her telecommunications before I call her - I don't want my call to remind her that TH hasn't called her back yet ;)

How strange that two years after this Idea "came to me", the Universe seems to be aligning to make it happen.

In the meantime, I am still fighting the good fight and trying to get back in shape. I'm swimming, spinning, running, doing Yoga and Crossfit. It feels awesome! The June tri looms in the near future but I'm confident I can do it.

Its all good, friends, its all very very good.

Helping people train for a triathlon and then having them do it is amazing! I had a New Triathlete Program last year and friendships were made, goals were met and smiles were smiled - big ones!
