Where have I been???

Wow!  It's been a week since I posted anything; where has the time gone?  Last week I completed 14 miles, and have done 6 so far in this week.  Knees are starting to give me some concern, as I've not really noticed any pain in them until today.  Did find out, though, that frozen packages of shredded cheese make pretty good ice packs.  Just in case you ever need to know.

I'm working with someone new at Heartline to try to get a report of donations that we've received so far.  Hopefully she'll get me something within the next couple of days, and I'll post it on the sidebar, so we know where we stand with that.

My friend Lisa, who is planning to do the run with me, could use some prayers.  She's suffering through a sinus infection, an ear infection, and still trying to get her miles in.  It does become considerably tougher when you are unable to breathe while you are running (jogging).  Please pray for quick healing for her.  :)  Oh, and maybe pray for my knees too... thanks!

Laura. Make sure if your knees are hurting you are taking care of your IT bands. Stephanie can help with that. Basically you want to roll on your outer leg on a foam roller, ball or can. It hurts like crazy but can help with knee issues.

We are so proud of you. 6 miles is almost half way there!

and this from the stud who completed his half in under 2 on Saturday -- congrats Captain! with regard to the 6 miles... it wasn't at one time (yet); that'll be on Friday. :) thanks for the advice and for the encouragement.

I am sure praying for you both and for your mission. Blessings, Aunt Julie
