A Fool of Myself

#56: Fear makes strangers of people who would be friends.

I didn’t run today; however, I did hang out with some fellow runners. The Ozark Mountain Ridge Runners have an adopted section of highway just past Sam’s Club, and we picked up trash today. You see, I work at the same church that I attend so I’m around the same group of people—all of whom are Christ-followers—all the time. I’ve been feelin’ the need to branch out.

So I’m working on expanding my circle of friends, and I might as well befriend some more runners. Today’s group was smaller than usual; our leader said they usually have 15–20 people. We only had about 7 today, and I was the only girl and the only one under the age of 40. At least I got some pizza out of the deal. Maybe I’ll make more gal pals next time!

  1. Wow – there’s somebody out there like me! Work at a church, like to run, realized that my life revolved around the church and the people there and found that being part of the local running club could be a different place to belong.Now trying to figure out how to let the running club be a belonging place with the people there becoming an evangelism project.Found you on the Complete Running Network.
