On November 20th, 2011. I registered the blog name www.dreambigrunlong.blogspot.com  and the website URL www.dreambigrunlong.com and both have sat there since that day waiting for a big dream of mine to come true.

As someone who used to work for and closely with Ellen and Elizabeth the founders of Moving Comfort – I have been inspired almost daily by their decision way back when to start their own company that made women’s running apparel – for women – that ACTUALLY fit women. They planted the seed in my head that no matter how small, I would one day start my own company that had something to do with running.

It started with a dream to one day work for myself. To combine work with my passion for running.

The first step was starting a blog to keep my foot in the running industry while I was at home with my children.

Now five years after I decided to “stay home” – all of my dreams/goals/hopes have turned into so much more than I could have planned.

Dream big run long website

    Yay!! Big time inspiration right here! See the goal and make it happen. You’re helping all of us make our own dreams come true. I borrowed your 26.2 bible verses for the marathon. Took them to Indy last weekend. Finished in just under my Boston qualifier time. Less than four months after third baby’s birth. Hoping to get back to Boston in 2015!! The dream is not about Boston as much as it is about getting better at balancing my life – believer, wife, mother, friend, runner.

  5. Congrats!! What an awesome dream of yours to come true! I love all that you come out with! Look forward to seeing all that you do with it!

  6. Thanks Sara :)

  20. Hi Dorothy, a true inspiration you are indeed. Did my first ultra- in fact 3- last weekend! Over 84 miles in 3 days! Had my ‘I run this body’ wrap bracelet on every step of the way. I also feel huge strength from God and remembered some of your great bible quotes. So thank you my darling. You ate indeed a true strength. Plus you will live this- I to love repeating numbers- my official finish time was 16:16:16!!!! Xxxx

  21. I’m extremely inspired along with your writing talents as smartly as with the format in your weblog.
    Is this a paid subject or did you customize it your self?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is uncommon to see
    a great weblog like this one today..
