So here it goes. I am running the half marathon on Sunday. The race starts at 7:30 AM and should end for me by 10:00AM (most take approximately 2 and 1/2 hours). I am going to be honest here and tell you that I almost quit my Austin Distance Challenge but have been told by 3 different people that I have inspired them through my running. So here I go! Please pray for my right hip (it tends to hurt around mile 8) and that my feet don't start to tingle (I think I was wearing the wrong socks last time). I appreciate all of the encouragement and am reminded by my dear friend Ezy that I should not take my running for granted. After the race on Sunday I will have 3 more races in my challenge and am striving to complete the Motorola Marathon in February. I am thankful that I have a husband who encourages me in my running and inspires me daily with how he perseveres. 
Thank you Lord that you put things in our life that challenge us and push us to strive. Thank you Lord for my ability to run and I give you all the glory for every step I have run so far. I praise You because You already know the outcome of the race and that, "I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ so firm on YOUR promise I stand" -Desert Song (Hillsong United)
