I did it! We did it! My goal in the Mini Marathon was 1:49. I posted a 1:48:44. 🙂 I shaved 2 minutes and 12 seconds from my time in February. Yay!
God was present the whole way! There were runners with T-shirts that said “If God is for us then who can be against us?” They encouraged me every time I ran past them.
At one point I was struggling. I ran past a shirt with Phillipians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I needed that so bad at that moment.
I also ran by things that reminded me of my loved ones who have been supporting me every step of the way. Cameras, energizer bunny, Brickyard hotel, Charlie Brown’s, golf course and Wood…all of these things boosted my spirits.
Mile 5 was the best! I got to see my niece and my number one fan-Mike. We high fived, gave the “I love you!” hand sign, said I love you and I was off.
Then at the finish, as I am struggling to get there I hear “go Boo!”. I push it and then finish with a personal best!!
San Diego here I come! Thank you Lord for the ability, talent and desire!!
