This morning I woke up and had a fantastic run!!
I decided to try and push myself further and see what happens. I started jogging around 7:30 this morning and I knew where I wanted to go. My goal was to get to this big playground that I take the boys too. Now, last summer I was breathing so hard walking to it.
I started jogging and I kept pushing myself further and further until I reached it. I went 11 minutes without stopping! And I was happy about the 8 a few days ago!! I never thought that I would be the girl on the side of the road jogging in the neighborhood, but I am!! I waved as people were coming out of their houses...I said hello to the people walking their dogs.
Now don't get me wrong, there were times I didn't think I could make it all the way there. There is this Christian song called "Homerun" by Geoff Moore and the Distance and I kept playing it in my head over and over again.
The chorus says:
Gotta keep my eye on the ball, swing straight and true and follow through.
Don't be afraid, what-ever the call!
Because we're never alone, our coach is there to cheer us on.
well, it's the wind-up,
here comes that ball,
You gotta pray and swing, watch it till, it's goin, goin, it's gone!
It kept me going and I felt so great when I reached it!!
What song keeps you uplifted?
Confession: I had Marble Slab icecream today. I went out with my dad for my birthday. I will post pics of us tonight or tomorrow morning.
Cheer: I ran for 11 minutes!! Duh!!
