Many of you have been on this "running a 5k" journey with me. We started training back in January by completing the Couch Potato to 5k Program.
It. about. killed. me.
In May Matt & I ran our first 5k...my time 33 min...Matt's 26:44...not bad.
We are still running and I have to say...it's getting a little easier for me...and I want to tell all of you out there that think you can't do it...YOU CAN...I promise.
I was the epitome of someone who thought she couldn't run down the block much less a 5k.
But I was bound & determined to do it....to over come my fears...my doubts.
One of my friends from HS...Jenn... lost her daughter Haley 2 years ago to CF and has continued to fight to raise money for a cure for CF. On Saturday I will run in a 5k she has started called
"Run to Breathe" A great cause!
Matt will be in Colorado and so I will be doing this alone...with out him. I am nervous & I can't believe I am doing this without my strong man with me.
To me...it's more than a race...it's letting God use me and move in ways I didn't think I could. It's peeling away a layer of insecurity that I am no longer that fat little girl no one wanted on her team as a child and throwing it away.
I want to beat my time of 33 min...we will see.
Do you have something you are letting go of so you can grow in Christ?
Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses
so that Christ's power may reside in me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
