How did you find out about PBRC?    Through Geri Jackson who has STALKED me since March 2012 to join the PBRC.  I was told to attend the orientation in January 2013 to check out the PB’s, and the rest is history.

 Why did you start running?   Besides from being STALKED I realized it was a life changing experience for me.

How has running changed your life? Besides being with a fantastic group of Women and getting the support it makes me feel like I have really accomplished something that I thought I could not do.

What would you say to anyone who may think they cannot run or are nervous about joining Purple Butterflies? Well I would tell the about the awesome Fellowship that you receive by being in this group, and after about that first month or two claim your RUNNER status.
