15 mile #2…

Today’s long run was a huge blessing from the Lord. Sunrise shining on the cliffs…red cardinals dancing in the streets…bunnies hopping in the grass…horses eating in the field! What a great way to start His day! Not to mention an awesome church service! He is so good!

I was able to run a negative split. This was supposed to be an easy run. So I went out there with the mindset to just let my body run. Easy. The first 7.1 I ran a 9:13. The second 7.9 I ran a 8:57 pace. I have to keep around a 8:42 on race day. I am right on target! The thing is I have to do that for 26.2 not 15! 😉

He will carry me through. He will be the wind beneath my wings!

He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights. Psalms 18.33

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us
Hebrews 12.1

2 weeks and counting!

Two weeks from tomorrow is the big day! I have lots of thoughts/feelings running through my mind! ConfIdent! Nervous! Anxious! Powerful! Weak! With all of these emotions I know God is there!

My training is progressing well! I have a long run tomorrow at an easy pace. I will feel better once it is done. Then two weeks to taper and prepare for June 5.

The vacation with my number one cheerleader is a huge motivation too! He gives me strength and encouragement everyday. The Lord blessed me with Mike! We are in this together. He will be with me every step of the way!

More to come tomorrow after the 15!
