Halfway Through

This week marks halfway through the marathon training.

I've run approx. 170 miles in 8 weeks.

I hit a wall this past Saturday when my "Marathon Rookie" calendar told me to run 14 miles.

I ran until my legs felt like concrete blocks.

I ran with a pocket knife in my hand because of Chelsea King.

I ran until my sports bra rubbed me so raw that I bled.

I ran till I cried.

I'm not tough.

I'm not crazy.

Jesus meets me out there, when I'm at my weakest...

and He meets me here when I rest.

I'm thinking this is one of those "all things through Christ who strengthens me" lessons...

Strengthen me Lord!

  1. I hesitate to tell you this...but Aaron looked down right chipper when he ran by our house 12 miles into a 14 mile run. I would probably die if I ran down the block. Go Jen Go!! When is the marathon? Where will it be?
