Praise God. Clay and I set out on a 4 mile run today. We decided to do two hilly 2-mile loops. We timed the first and it came out to 16:30. Disappointing. I felt bad. My legs and lungs felt so weak. At the end of the run we took the Carter (our dog) home and set out again. Before we started out, I told Clay that I wasn't sure I really wanted to train for this marathon because I didn't think I could really do it and run fast. About 1/3 mile into the second loop, I realized that I never asked God for help today. From that point on in my run, my mantra was "Jesus bless this run". I ran hard and just let it go to God. When we finished the loop, I asked Clay for the time. 15:13. Praise God. That is the fastest I have ever run that loop. Never discount what God can do in all aspects of your life. And never forget to thank Him.
