Running with Endurance

Running club Being a distance running enthusiast, I deeply appreciate the physical, mental, and emotional refreshment that comes from a long workout. Carol Hill's idea to bring the benefits of exercise to inmates by starting a running club in a women's prison reflects just the kind of creative care and encouragement that contributes to transformed lives.

Hill says, "It's about so much more than running...Running's an opportunity for them to do something they never thought they could do...Some have reconnected with their kids and have made plans to run with them when they get out." As Hill jogs with the women around the prison's newly renovated track, she is helping them prepare to "run with endurance the race marked out for them."

What a great idea! I regularly volunteer with a friend to teach marketing classes at the women's correctional facility here in Central Iowa and these are great activities for the women.
