How to finish your first half marathon

Posted by on May 4, 2015


I ran my first half marathon in October 2014. During the training, I overcame many challenges (like cramps and shin splints) that ultimately led me to become a runner. This is because I took the time to get my running shoes properly fitted, to learn how to run through pain and to talk with people to find out how to run a lot of miles each week. Since then, I have run three more half marathons (including the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon this past weekend) and have many more to go.

Northview Church is not shy about this either, as creativity is also at the DNA of who we are as a church, congregation and even the workplace. One of the key leaders of this creative vision, Communications Director Lauren Wright, is celebrating five years leading the communications department.

Also, did you know that Walt Disney dropped out of high school to join the military, was not accepted, and started to draw cartoons because he was out of work?
