Yesterday Scott and I did weights so that we could do our strength & stretching day after the long run. Tomorrow I will train with Scott AND Diane (what great motivation!) again doing only 2 miles (it's supposed to be a cross training day but you are allowed to run 2 miles on those days if you prefer).
Despite how stressed out I was for almost the entire day today, and as much as I did NOT want to run tonight, I am SO happy I did. That's what I always heard from my running friends, and I just thought they were crazy. It was hot as Hades today but God pulled me through and I made the 3.5 miles AND can now look back and say that it was a good stress reliever too.
My devotion last night was about ridding ourselves of our own pride so that we could fully experience God's glory, and I think that today was my first glimpse of that. When I put my selfishness aside, God does wonderful and amazing things.
See you all at the finish!
