Misty Watson: Not there yet, but I won’t quit
I had plans to sit down and write about how successful I’d been. I wanted to write about how easy it had been to go from being a non-runner to completing my first 5K in three months, about how I had shed several pounds and how awesome I felt.
But that’s not exactly what has happened.

Smith wins triathlon title
A gritty Emilie Smith claimed Dalton's only first-place finish Saturday morning in the second annual Dalton Youth Triathlon at Dalton Recreation Center.
Smith, an eighth grader at Dalton Middle School, won the female Senior Division (ages 13-17). Her events in order included the 300-meter swim, 8-mile bike ride and 2-mile run.
Go for it
Chatsworth resident Daniel Parson disdained running when he was in school, but has shown quite a reversal as an adult.
Here we go Loop de Loop
The Loop, a longtime landmark for runners and walkers in Dalton, continues adding more believers to the idea of physical fitness.
I’m not sure if it was the rush of finishing or the surge of my first energy drink, but hours after completing the Blackfoot Mud Run on Saturday, I’m having a hard time talking myself into cleaning up.
Run for God program to get under way
Mitchell Hollis said he was just trying to help a small group of people.
But it quickly spiraled into much more.
“I don’t know where this thing is headed now,” Hollis said. “It’s gotten far beyond me.”
Hollis developed a 12-week program called “Run for God,” which combines Bible study with a 5K training program. It began as a program for members of his home church, Grove Level Baptist on Cleveland Highway, who were interested in running. But he now has nine other churches in Whitfield, Murray and Catoosa counties committed to begin the program the week of July 12.
Join Run for God program
It’s not too late for individuals or churches to participate in the next “Run for God” program.
