February 15th I ran in the Mercedes Marathon Relay with several of my friends from DAXKO. I intended to train but didn’t (and I paid for it the next day! Sore, sore, sore!)
As much as I feared running because of my lack of preparation I had the BEST time!

Much of the money raised benefits The Bell Center in Birmingham, Al. My cousin Joshua goes there currently and his brother Roman just graduated 🙂 Their big brother Mason and mom Alison ran too!

Just being out there with thousands of people all running for a common cause felt really amazing- like I was part of something bigger than myself. Like being a Christian but on a smaller scale 😉 Running the race (just a part of it) and keeping the faith (that I could actually finish)…

I was the least likely to be out there on that course. Just like I was the least likely to be chosen and loved by the God of the universe! I am not a runner but I ran and I finished. I am not a “super-marathon-Christian” but I keep running and I will finish -Maybe not at the “front” but I will cross the finish line – welcomed into my heavenly home – to lay my reward at His feet.

He carried me through the entire race after all 🙂
