But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. - Isaiah 40:31

Happy Birthday to Me

I'm 51 years old today. If you'd told me a year ago that I would be running or walking a half-marathon at this age, I wouldn't have believed you. Yet that's what's in store for me in just eight days. And I actually signed up for this by choice.

It's a good thing. (So says Martha.)

Kylee! It's almost race day, can you believe it! I am really excited for you, and I'm really glad you're able to participate. Do you plan to continue running/walking once this is completed?


Your biggest fan in California

PS - An in 3 hours? WOW. Just WOW!

Katie ~ First of all, THANK YOU so much for all of your encouragement and support. I always look forward to reading your comments here.

I'm writing this the day after the race and a very lengthy post with lots of pictures is forthcoming.

I can now answer your question with a YES. I think I will continue. I'm not allowed to run until December, if my eye checks out okay then, but I will resume running at that time. In the meantime, I'll be walking and biking. I really do want to do this again! I can't believe I'm saying that. LOL
