Race Day

Today is race day.  One of my friends from the running group encouraged me greatly yesterday when she reminded me of the hills we have navigated back home in Colorado.  And the song we made up "The hills are alive, with the sound of moaning."  (to the tune of Sound of Music)

I will just get out there and do the best I can.  There is nothing more that I can do.

I have prayed that God show me how to be an asset to him on the race course today.  You never know what that is going to look like.  But I am ready and willing.

If you would, could you say a little prayer for me today?

Thank you.

I'm so excited for you! No matter what happens -- triumphant finish or DNF -- I think you're a rockstar even attempting this kind of physical feat. I absolutely can't wait to hear how it all turns out, the good, the bad and the ugly! (And I love the song your running group made up.)

It's out there. I groaned through all the pain but sang through all the joy whether 10K or marathon. The beauty of it it's like a spiritual experience you're forever touched and no one can take it away from you.

My prayer is. God You pick em up I'll lay them down.
