- I finished!
- I didn't finish last!
- I had several good friends from church come out to support me.
- In training, I have run 3 and 4 miles at a time. Last year, I could not run more than two.
- Mr. Skillen graciously gave some money to World Vision anyway. He called it my "appearance fee." Thanks, Dee!
You can always learn lessons from life events. Today was no different.
When I reach heaven, it won't matter how fast I ran the race, but that I finish.
I will be cheered on by those who have gone on before me. I can't wait to see Sam in those crowds. I imagined him running beside me today.
If you want to gain better self-control, try setting goals for yourself. I have tried running before, but never gave myself a goal until this year. I plan to keep giving myself goals to stay motivated.
Give it your best, but be merciful to yourself if things don't go as expected!
