Another 9 + PR

Sometimes I get discouraged while running. Every once in a while, some runner chick will blow past me and gain at least a mile ahead of me. I hate that! UGH.. Makes you feel bad about where you are...

                                                      and then... I remember....


I remember last year when doctors thought running was damaging my heart.. I remember them thinking the passing out episodes were heart related, which we later learned was Epilepsy. As I think about this past year, I am realizing I may never PR a race in terms of time, but I am hitting a new PR every mile my body runs. How many people do you know that have Epilepsy and RUN??? I know none.. Most can't!  I am BLESSED and my blessings are different than other runners. I am thankful God is teaching me to be thankful in everything.


I set out to accomplish 11 miles, but on my way through 9, I was getting a blister, which is very rare for me. 
My left shoe is wearing out, on the inside, which is how I got the blister. I am going to contact Asics because they are only 3 months old! These shoes may be shot already.. I don't know. I will wait and see what they say...


Do you run to PR or is God blessing your exercise in a different way?

I don't know what PR is.... but I ran for the first time today in over a year.... running isn't really my thing. I ran/walked for about 30 mins... I didn't really time myself by accident but meh I did it!

Britt, that is a great question! It means personal record.. Most people try to beat their previous running times, so when they beat an old time, they have gotten a new personal record.. They keep trying to run faster and faster to get better PRs. Does that make sense? I probably will never run a 7 minute mile, but a 10-11 minute mile is just great.. I feel like every mile God allows me to do, is better than none.. Hope that helps..
