Making it to the End

Today I ran my first ever 1/2 marathon.  With God's help (since I didn't really train) I was able to push through and finish the race at an 8:18 pace.  It felt great to finish such a long race and now I get to live with the consequences of not training!  My next race is this Saturday for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K.  William will also be participating in the kids run.  Here are a few pictures.

Complaint Free 21 day challenge update: My record is currently 19+ hours without complaining.  I am currently going on a little over 7 hours.  Going 21 days without complaining is going to be difficult, but it will feel great when I make it to the end. 

40 Days in the World Update:  We started a new strategy today called "Paraphrase It!" With this strategy we will look at scripture each day and paraphrase it in our own words while looking for how we can apply the scripture in our own lives.  This week we will work our way through the book of James.  I am looking forward to trying out this need mediation strategy.
