Hey there! I’m so glad to meet you, I’m Allison Dougherty, Welcome to Be Still and Run! As a quick introduction, I was born again before I turned 10, the exact date I do not know. It has been a long hard journey since then, but God has been gracious! I began running in the year of 2015, not fully getting into it till about a year later, and have been running ever since! A few years ago, God led me to combine faith with my running and though it has been a very hilly path, full of ups and downs, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. This is exactly what I was meant to do from the beginning and I can honestly say I feel directly in the will of God, this is what I was created for. I pray that the love God has showered me with over the years will come out into everything I do. I love ya’ll and pray God would work mightily in your life!
These challenges are designed with you in mind and a whole lot of prayer. We will be adding each one to this page as they are created, so if you love God and you love running, then stay tuned!

Then dare to be challenged to a new way of living with this free 5 day challenge, (self-paced and short sessions for your convenience!), that will inspire you to choose a relationship with Jesus rather than living a life full of rules and regulations, anxiety and fatigue.

We can introduce this new way of living by inviting God into our daily workouts! Hence, running with God.
So I challenge you to get out of the box of comparison, out of the religion box, out of whatever box you have packaged yourself up in and learn how to live a life of freedom!
