I was once told that you should never aspire to be a rising star but instead you should be a moon (BAM), for there are millions of stars in the sky and only one moon. Although stars eventually burn out, the moon will always remain bright. Julie Isphording is not a rising star, she is a moon.

I just wanted to thank you so much for writing such a fabulous article in The Enquirer on I severely sprained my right ankle training for a marathon. I spent the first couple of days in tears realizing that all this training just went out the window…until I read your article! I got rid of the tears and ever since it has been nothing but smiles for me. I really just wanted to thank you for brightening my entire outlook on my running. I have a copy of your article in my office so I can constantly be reminded of what I have to look forward to.

Just wanted to drop you a note to say how much I enjoyed your article on running in today's Enquirer. It was really fantastic! Some time with all the other obligations in our life exercise just becomes one more thing to put on our to-do list. It can be overwhelming. But taking an attitude like yours -- make it whatever you want, with as many people as you and as high-tech or low-tech as you want -- can really help make it ME time.

Vic DiPilla, VP Christ Hospital


Great leaders know that people follow by example and not just by words alone. Julie does not simply walk the talk; she runs the talk.

Nothing pleases her more than seeing people meet their goals.
