Stepping out of my comfort zone I joined the efforts of Counseling Connections at the Autism Awareness 5K in Libertyville IL... my first organized run EVER!  

My coworkers and I recalled our fondest moments working with children on the autism spectrum and used these memories to focus and fuel our energy for the run.

I recognized the discomfort of trying something new and scary.  Something I know my clients endure in their struggle to engage and connect.
