The Running Promise : A personal memoir of the discoveries and challenges that changed my life.
by Elba Watkins




Overview -
"The Running Promise" is an inspiring true story about personal discoveries, achieving goals, and overcoming challenges through running. It will walk you through one woman's journey to discover how to be happy, and how to transform difficult moments into fortitude and inner strength. When Elba was growing up, running was not encouraged for women, and she first became interested in running, when in her mid 30s, she learned about Team in Training from Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). In her story, she shares how she went from never logging a mile, or participating in sports of any kind, to making a promise to race for ten consecutive years to support cancer patients and cancer research. She details how this journey, and the lessons learned, transformed her life, fostering confidence, and happiness. It is a story to share with others who have dreams that seem impossible. Sometimes our dreams seem crazy or somehow unreachable, and the idea of quitting comes to our minds. In "The Running Promise" you will discover that the truth is we can do anything we want to if we have a strong desire to succeed and the aspiration within us, dreams become reachable if we work hard, and wholeheartedly believe in ourselves.
