Let me introduce myself...
Hi, I'm Jurell Sison...
I’m a father to two kiddos, been married for 8 years and wow… I’m still trying to figuring out how to make it through this mess of a pandemic life.
I’m not sure about you but there are a lot of days that I find myself still grieving the pain and loss from the last year… I became so unhealthy, so angry and depressed in many ways.
In an act of desperation, I asked social media if anyone was willing to join me in doing one mile every day in January. With so many doubts running through my head I told myself I would be happy to get a group of 3-5 people... but within minutes, 15 people had messaged me and three weeks later 500+ people had signed up to walk and run with me.
So... I got to work. I started running and walking everyday with my TLP community. I was held accountable and pushed to my limits by all the stories I was hearing on social media and slowly… day by day… mile by mile… I was getting better… my life felt like it was healing… I even started to pray again.
A deeper sense of trust began to grow inside me. I started to believe that God had my back. Day by day, I could feel my relationship with God growing stronger.
Looking back, I can see now how I desperately needed a starting point--something simple that could break through the strong grief and doubt that I was experiencing.
The mile-a-day was a simple enough starting point to get me out of my daily rut. It got me moving and doing something different. It got me outside… walking, jogging, and even running for my best time on some days.
Needless to say, the mile-a-day challenge has changed my life.
It’s transformed me in a thousand different ways and I think it has a lot in store for you as well.
If you are still with me... read on to see how the Mile-a-Day has transformed others as well...
