Over the past 4 months I have been training for my first half-marathon. Many people have asked WHY? Why put yourself though running 13.2 miles or you can look at it running for 3 hours. That just doesn't seem fun at all. Well I do it for the excitement of pushing myself. Because I know I will only be able to complete this task with God next to my side. So instead of looking at it running for 3 hours, I look at is as spending 3 hours in deep conversation with Jesus Christ. It's more then the commitment of running each day it's the commitment that I am here to stay and that I want God by myself for ever. Push me to do things I only dreamed about. So that is why I push myself each and every day to go out and do my best. Today I completed my first 6 miles run and I couldn't of felt more alive. I never once gave up no matter how much I wanted to. I looked to God and started going over my bible verses. Along the way we also ran by a golf course and God had a golf ball waiting for me. I found this to take my mind off of running. Gave my hands something to do because of my attention span as well it gave me a great way to memorize verse while running. I will just write the letters on the ball and then I can take it with me. Overall I found a great way to keep going and being able to put my mind back on Jesus. It's truly is amazing how Jesus works!

Only 39 more days tell race day! :D
