Moving to Royston, I prayed & prayed for a running buddy, God blessed me with Billie Jean. She asked me to run at 6:00am - I'm a morning person, but I was worried I couldn't do it. Then, when I began to work, we moved it to 5:30am, then 5:00am. I loved my time with her, but our season of running has ended. Billie Jean & her family moved home to Arkansas. I cried & cried - missing her friendship & the blessing she had been to me, encouraging me to take time for myself. So - I prayed & prayed again, & God has blessed me AGAIN with more crazy mama's who wake up to run with me at 5:00am - Kelly & the RES teachers. I am blessed beyond measure by these women - who run alongside me, who hear my worries of the day, who support & challenge me to give 110%!
This weekend, I ran a 15K! Kelly & I got a crazy idea two weeks ago we could run a 15K (9.3 miles). (We only run 3 miles during the week & occasionally I run 4-6 miles on the weekends.) We did it! Kelly pushed me to go faster & finish the extremely hilly race!!! I have run a lot of races, but this is one I am so proud we accomplished with little training!!!
