I'm over my pity party from the other day. I apologize for letting my insecurities take over my blog for a few minutes. Just to clear things up, I am going to continue training for May 6. I will complete the half marathon for Haiti; whether I run, walk, or crawl -- I will finish.
Thank you for the prayers for my 10-miler; I did complete it. What a trip! Laura Bakker was able to complete a 10 mile run. Crazy. It took me a little longer than I thought that it would, due to some walking and some necessary stretching breaks. But it's finished... praise God.
My knees were ever-so-grateful for the ice packs, and I honestly don't think that I've ever enjoyed a shower as much as I did after that run. I'm sure that God probably got a chuckle from my gushing prayers of thanksgiving for modern conveniences like fresh running water from a shower head. Maybe they helped to make up for the begging and pleading prayers that were going up during the actual run... He was probably about over those.
