Cincinnati Color Me Rad 5k: Running with a Purpose

I wouldn't call myself a runner per say - I can run, but not for long periods of time, and I stop a LOT. Let's say I have ambitions to be a runner. As I work out and seek activities that can push me there, sometimes I get discouraged. Last year I made an attempt at Tough Mudder and I hung my head in defeat as I bowed out because of a minor injury early on in the competition. Being a quitter is not something I take lightly, and I was determined I would never enter another race again; the agony of … [read more]

Help end modern-day slavery in U.S. tomato fields

I just sent a letter to Supermarket CEO's:   Subject: Help end modern-day slavery in U.S. tomato fields. Dear _____, Just a few years ago, Florida's tomato fields were called "ground zero" for modern-day slavery in the United States. Over the past 15 years, seven cases of forced labor have been successfully prosecuted, resulting in more than 1,000 farmworkers restored to freedom. Modern-day slavery is real, but so is the solution. Your company can take a stand against slavery … [read more]

#BeansAndRiceWeek Day 2

Yesterday I wrote about #BeansAndRiceWeek and mentioned my struggles.  I honestly think that's what God wants us to do.  I think the entire point of my relationship with God is that I have to constantly turn to him.  Constantly.  I found this verse the other day: So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your … [read more]

Occasionally I share with you little snippets about how I am a cancer survivor.  But I rarely write an entire post about it.  I usually save all of that for RadioactiveLiz.com because I don't want to be depressing here.  But today, I've decided I need to share some of this with the world.  So I am writing a post about 5 things cancer did to my life. 1.  It directed me towards God I've always been spiritual, but immediately upon hearing the words that I had cancer I turned to God.  In a split … [read more]
