(I’m still waiting on Wendy to get me a picture of us together when she downloads it. Until then this one will have to do.)
This past Saturday Wendy and I completed our half marathon that we’ve been training for the past few months. It was a good race. I felt really good. The anticipation and then the actaul training for one is what actually does me in. We had full steam crossing the finish line which I give credit to the Jeff Galloway walk run method. It was hard to make ourselves walk the minute during the first 4 miles because there is such momentum going but it was so funny because at the end, the last few miles we were passing people left and right with a shocking pace. Felt good.
So now what? Glad you asked. I’ve got some more shocking news coming that I’m going to post tomorrow. I’m even shocking myself with what’s next. If you have heard my voice over the past month you would know that the shoes were to be put up after this race. A much needed break from running and planned run schedules.
And then you hear a whisper. An urge in your heart that let’s you know you are not done yet. Maybe this “year of running” was meant for something more? That maybe these runs have all been part of a bigger picture that is being created but it’s just not done yet? No, I’m not running a marathon. Maybe one day. Although I highly doubt it. But I do think what is next is so fitting for me personally and on my journey. I can’t wait to tell you about it. Keep posted!
