Only at the starting line, not even close Finished

July 18, 2017

Only at the starting line, not even close to finished.


This painting was done by my good friend Liz. I met Liz at one of my Running Room Talks. When I showed up to do my  Talk Liz had already purchased my book a head of time and had it with her along with a whole bunch of questions for me. I was so impressed and overly happy as this has only happened to me a couple of times. Where people show up and have already started reading my book or have read it ahead of time and have questions for me, I am always more than happy to answer all questions!


I answered Liz’s questions the best I could and we talked in depth about depression and then I ran with Liz and we talked even more. Liz is an amazing lady, Mother, Wife and Painter.  But She had stopped painting because she was in a ruff place in her life. Since I met her that day I have been following her on face book and she has been running races and camping with her family and the change I see in her face and eyes since I first met her is amazing.


 She started to take care of her self and do things she loves. One day I contacted her I asked her if she would consider doing a painting for me to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of the realise of “Why I Run” coming up in Sept. She said yes and after sometime she messaged me and sent me a pic of what she had come up with so far. I was blown way by her talent and I was simply amazed by what she already had come up with.


Today Liz delivered my painting way ahead of time and I couldn’t be happier!! This painting will be the cover of my next book  “ My Guided Meditation” which will be realised sometime in 2018. Liz has come so far and now she is going to be teaching people how to paint in a new venture she is taking on! I am so happy for Liz and how far she has come! I can’t wait to finish my new book and have this wonderful painting this beautiful work of art as my new cover!  What a wonderful Lady and what a wonderful friend I have made thanks to my book!


I have made so many wonderful friends since “Why I Run” has been realised sometimes I think to my self what have I started? What a can of worms I have opened. But then I think I started something really good! Something real and something I believe in something I am passionate about and that is helping as many people as I can.  I am not even close to a finish line here I have just started. 😊 Many exciting things are just around the corner. I can’t wait for the NEXT STEP.
