Just gonna do it!

If you have followed me since January, you know that I have been training for the
 25k (15.5 miles) Riverbank Run.  In Michigan, it's not uncommon to run and train in snow or ice. 
The past two weeks, I have been feeling very ick! My throat has been on fire and my ears have been super painful, so I haven't done any long runs. The doctor said it was viral and would need to take its course. Earlier this week, I was feeling like I might not run the race..

                                                          But then....        

                                                                 I saw.....

                                                                             The bling!!!!


The bling got me all excited, so I ran 5 miles (1/3 of the race) yesterday.. The run wasn't great, but I did it... I have come to the conclusion I will run the race 
Saturday. 

I might not run a great time, but I will FINISH! I will have this medal in hand!! Whether I am running, walking, crawling or being dragged across the finish line, I will finish.. I am excited for SATURDAY! 

Bring it on!

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Hebrews 12:1
