I don’t know about you guys, but I’m really excited for long morning runs in the Summer again.

I really want to have a deeper and more real relationship with God. I feel like I’m constantly getting distracted by worldly things rather than spending time with Him and thanking Him for all of the blessings in my life. I just want to be real. I want to be committed. It’s not about “religion” for me, it’s about having relationship with the creator of the universe and I need to take that seriously. I feel like I’m always putting everything else before Jesus and that’s not okay at all. He deserves to have all of my attention and be the center of everything I do. Lord, please help me to hunger for your word and your presence daily. Thank you for giving your life so we could be set free. Amen.
when I think about how far I’ve come in my running it blows my mind. I was the girl in middle school who hid in the bathroom when we had to do “the mile.” and when I was brave enough to attempt this unimaginable task of running one whole mile, I would run it in about 9 or 10 minutes with walking breaks. now I am able to run miles and miles and I can actually do it in a reasonable amount of time! now when I’m asked to run the mile, it isn’t something I dread. It’s something that makes me feel alive. I can now run a sub 6 minute mile and couldn’t be happier. every day I’m getting stronger with the help of the Lord, my amazing teammates, coaches and family. I am completely blessed.
my race honestly didn’t go well at all. it was crazy windy and cold and I just felt terrible the entire time. but I know that God has big plans for me and that if I keep working hard and persevering through trials, it will make me stronger in the end.
