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

The Night Before the Big Race

I worked this morning, then had my eye doctor's appointment in the afternoon. While I was hoping my report would be that I could once again run, I was told that it wouldn't be in the best interest of my eye for me to do that. So I'll walk it.

This evening, Fort4Fitness festivities began with the Health Fair being held at the Allen County Public Library. Various health-related businesses and organizations were set up in the halls and under a tent outside.

We walked around a little bit, and ran into some familiar faces - people that I wasn't aware of that were running this thing. I also spoke with Jamey and a few of my fellow group runners, a couple of which I hadn't seen in awhile. We had looks of trepidation, calm, excitement - pretty much the gamut of emotions showed on our faces and in our conversations.

This is it and now I'm off to bed to try and get a few hours of sleep before the alarm goes off at 4:00 a.m.

Hi Kylee,
Well, all is said and done at this point. I certainly hope all went as well as you anticipated. I am so proud of you for walking the race even with the obstacles you've faced after all your hard training. None of it was in vain I'm sure... as these kinds of things always bring more to us in the way of discipline, endurance and character than we can imagine. It's been a great opportunity for you to discover some very important things about yourself along the way as well. Can't wait to hear how it all went.

Hi Meems ~ Yes, it's all over now. I'm working on photos and will have a very lengthy post soon. What an experience! And everything you said is absolutely true.

Thank you SO MUCH for all of your encouragement and support!
