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

Half Marathon; Here I come!

Tomorrow, I leave my five kiddos and hubby behind.  I'm meeting up with my mom and my little sister in Charlevoix, MI; about five hours from home.

We are all running the half marathon on Saturday.  It'll be my first half, my mom's first race ever, and my sister's second half.

I'm so excited.  Pray for me.


  1. Yay! So excited for you! I never got to run my first Half because I injured myself 2 months before and have been on the injured list for 8+ months! Enjoy and take it all in! You will totally rock it!

  2. Best of luck. Take it in, don't worry about the time, finish strong!

  3. Good luck to you!! This is exciting....your first half:) My first half was in January and it was terrible. Remember to bring fuel with, either sport beans or gels. I made the mistake of attempting to do my first without fuel...big mistake:) I will say a prayer for you:) Remember to have fun too!

  4. Have a great one! I can't wait to hear about it :)

  5. I just had to check your results. Way to go!!!! Can't wait to hear about it.
