Soccer Adventures


So much for finding my new physical challenge (yet to be determined), but I do have an adventure coming up soon!  I’m going on my very first mission trip along with ten other individuals from my church to the tiny island of Cayman Brac.  It’s going to be an incredible journey for me to minister to the children of the island through one of my favorite activities–soccer!  Our team will be supporting the local church as we lead a soccer camp (that is aimed at gearing them up for the fall season of Upward Sports to be supported by the local government) and take part in various other activities. So I’ve been working to determine the structure of the camp, what kinds of drills we want to incorporate. etc.  We chose a Bible verse for the week that we hope the kids will take to heart by the end of camp:

Philippians 3:14: I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
