Condition. Nutrition. Fruition.
R.U.N. Ministries was established on October 21, 2016. It was inspired by founder Traci Roper, originally from North Little Rock, AR who currently resides in Dallas, TX. After tearing her ACL in the last inning, last out of her college fast-pitch softball career; spurred a reevaluation of her life plans and purpose. Her extensive stages of recovery incorporated an entire renewing of the mind, body and spirit. History would show and previous teammates could attest that running was one of her least favorite things to do. However, after full recovery, running seemed to be what freed her mind and initiated her 40lb weight loss. More importantly, it was when God began to write scriptures upon her heart to solidify the foundation for R.U.N., an acronym for aRe yoU iN with Christ. By understanding that unhealthy eating habits and a lack of commitment to regular exercise was not only destroying her body but disabling her ability to carry out God’s mission. Complete restoration and healing began when her search for Him revealed what the Bible states about these very concerns.
1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know the Holy Spirit lives within you? You are not your own
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to the world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind
The two scriptures work together to establish R.U.N.’s mission to motivate and inspire women to live healthier lives by renewing their mind, body, and spirit in Christ.
R.U.N. will hit the pavement in various aspects including its unique database of which you will be able to locate and research specific topics in physical and mental health, an e-learning system, annual 5k’s, and audio inspirations to assist while on the journey!
Lace up your shoes, prepare your heart and renew your mind; aRe yoU iN?
