Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Cor 9:24-27

Running is my newest challenge

I am not a runner.  Since I started my weight loss / exercise journey ten weeks ago, I am trying to run.  I first started with run/walk intervals, i.e. Run 1 minutes, Walk 2 minutes, repeat 10X.   Currently, I am running 6 minutes at a time with 1 minute of walking.  My goal is to run three 5K races this year.  
For my birthday, I invested in some awesome running gear from Athleta; moisture wicking and available in Tall sizes!

With five children and homeschooling, it has been a challenge fitting in my exercise each day.  Being made in the image of God is worth the extra effort.


  1. Oh you look so cute! I love the Athleta catalog and also Title Nine but I am still too cheap to invest in some cute things. You have inspired me--perhaps for Easter?

  2. That is my ALL time favorite catalog too! Glad to see that you are getting the right kind of gear to make it happen for yourself!
    I got expensive boots this year to make myself get out in the snow. It's working.
