September 7th, 2010 – 3.73 Mile Run

The continued prayer is, “Lord keep me focused. Keep my mind stayed on You. Help me to bring You praise. I know You believe in me. Please help me in my unbelief. Amen.”

Tonight’s run did not start out great at all. While I was working on mile 1, I was seriously wondering why the heck I’m doing this. Even up through the 1.75 mile mark, I was just not feeling it. I just wanted to stop the whole time.

However, somewhere after the 2.25 mark, it just opened up. It started to feel really good. The weather was great and the temperature was perfect. I was trying to maintain my race pace, which is going to be super slow and steady because I’ll have to hang in there for 13 miles.

If I can fight through those first 2 miles, the last 11.1 should be cake!

Oh! I registered for the Wounded Warriors Half Marathon on the 18th. Yes, the 18th of THIS MONTH!!! Anything to support the Troops! So what I thought was going to be my first half marathon (Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon next month in Los Angeles) is actually going to be my second.

If you told me this time last year that I would be running TWO half marathons next fall, I would have laughed myself silly. But here I am…. And I hope I won’t regret it.


  1. Awesome! Can't wait!
    You'll be starting about a half hour after I do, because while I plan to run most of it, I signed myself up as a walker cuz I'm fairly certain I won't be moving that fast and the walkers start at 7:30a and the runners at 8:00a

    Be sure to throw up a high-five when you pass me!
