A Note from Your Instructor
Hi, I'm Erin Leopold and I'm very excited about starting the Run For God program at Brookwood. My family and I love sports, the outdoors and anything that involves movement and nature. Currently I train a running group at the GHS Family YMCA, teach cycle as needed and work in medical fitness at St. Francis Millenium Heal ThySelf gym doing cardiac rehab/diabetes/vascular disease.

To look at me and hear all that I've been able to do with exercise, you wouldn't know the challenging difficulties I've had with my health since I was 16 years old. Being able to impact others lives through exercise and wellness when your own is a daily struggle has become my testimony in showing how God's strength is truly made perfect in weakness. Three years ago God gave me back the gift of racing, all the while still facing great health challenges and have been able to personally witness the mysteries and perfect power of Christ working in me through running.

I honestly feel that every time my feet hit the pavement now I am running for God and not for myself. I cannot wait to share this journey with others who also love God and love running!
