However this year I got to be a spectator to my husband and that was kinda fun! I even saw a few other bloggers-a.k.a friends and other runners out there too! It was great to be able to cheer them on, especially where I was at. I was on the corner right before the finish line! Talk about LOCATION! Want to start to see people well up in tears knowing they are so close, well, that's the place to be!
My husband was NOT super happy with his splits and that was due to a 5MINUTE bathroom stop! Yes, he had to wait 5 whole minutes at one line in the port-potty.. C'mon people!! I couldn't believe it when I was looking for him.... I knew he wasn't this slow... I thought maybe something had gone wrong.. I kept looking for him and watching the time knowing when I should expect to see him... Finally, I did see him and felt a sense of relief... wondering what did happen... You never know what can happen on a race course...
At least when he got close to me, he was all smiles and that made me happy! Sometimes it doesn't matter if you have a crappy race or an awesome PR, it matters that you did it and who's there with you!! In the end, the weather turned out to be great, the races were fun and well, it's another race in the books! I had a great time cheering people on!

To the one and only who has taught me to love others first, to extend grace always, to show kindness and compassion in a smile to a stranger, to place value on people rather than things, the person who started my love for the mouse house, the one who has always been at the finish line waiting for me to cross over at each race, the one who took me to the salon when I cried after screwing up my eyebrows terribly thinking they were beyond repair, and the person who guided my faith and then allowed me to figure my own path- MOM, I wouldn't be half the human without you! You're truly a woman of grace and beauty that never ages! Happy Mother's Day to a one of a kind, that I am so blessed to call MOM!

Guideposts Books is excited to announce the premiere of a new film based on the book Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Ohio (Summerside Press) by Serena Miller.
Will she be able to uncover Joe’s secrets despite her aunts’ – and her own – growing affection for him?
About the Author:
This book had my attention from page 1. Honestly, I couldn't stop reading it. From the beginning where we meet Joe Matthew and is his sweet son, Bobby- I knew this story was going to be good. The story starts off with a father and his son trying to leave a past behind for a different future. Only to find that in the middle of this their truck breaks down and they find themselves in Sugar Creek, Ohio surrounded by Amish folks who talk a bit different and have different customs, luckily for Joe and Bobby, a kind man helped them find a place to stay, which then turns into a place where Joe lives with three Aunts for a while and helps take care of their hope. He also meets Rachel, a cop who wants to know Joes story and won't let it rest until she figures out what he's all about and why he's running from his past. The three Aunts are funny and great women. The character development in this story makes the aunts likeable and very relate-able. Rachel however, is the hardest character to relate to, until Joe finds her back story about her why she is so closed and suspicious of trusting others. Will Rachel uncover the mystery of why Joe is really in Sugarcreek?
I truly enjoyed my visit to Sugar Creek and learned a lot about the Amish community, customs and culture. If you're looking for a book with an interesting plot, full of character development and dynamic twists and turns, this book will keep you turning the pages! Thank you to Guideposts and SummerSide Press for allowing me to review this book. I was not compensated for a positive review, but received this book for review purposes only.
