It probably wasn't missed, but I didn't get a chance to write and post the Monday Blahg. Sunday was insanely busy--church, immediately followed by work (drop-in childcare place was open on Mother's Day, and since my mom lives far away, I worked and allowed some of the other workers to be with their moms who live nearby), immediately followed by a 9 mile run.
And Monday turned out to be blaher than usual. I was/still am kinda-sorta sick, but not really. I never had a fever or anything to indicate being really sick--I just felt completely lethargic and had an upset tummy. I went to bed SUPER early Monday night and felt much better Tuesday, but I'm still recovering.
So, I'm going to go ahead and cut this short because I need some rest (I'm writing this Tuesday night). My half-marathon is this Saturday. Lord willing, I'm flying out to Indiana on Thursday to see family and run the Geist Half Marathon. I hope to be over whatever random kinda-sorta sickness I have so I can run my best. Prayers for health/safety would be appreciated. More than that, pray that I honor the Lord in the way I run and encourage other runners.
I'm still so amazed that He would enable me to run. I still think of myself as an overweight pansy, but He's done a lot in my life to bring me to this point. This race, it's not about how fast I can run or about how long I can go. It's about the Lord being my hope and my strength. I'm just so blessed that He would choose to use me.
