It has been an amazing journey. When I started 25 weeks ago I was running 22 minute miles. Which is incredibly slow. But that's okay. I was carrying a lot of weight...about 50 pounds more than I am now...and my body was still in major training mode. And now, I am running my miles in the 13 minute range...still slow, but so much faster than I was. I am so proud of myself. Really. It was a lot of hard work. It was a lot of mental blocks that I had to jump over. A lot of getting up in the dark and running. And doing it by myself. I am so blessed and humbled because I know the Lord was with me this whole journey. I couldn't have gone this far without him.
So, I will be back in a few days with lots of pictures and I am sure brimming with excitement!!!
