I run because I can

I run- not because I am the fastest, tallest, quickest runner- I do it because I can.

 

Women's Half in St. Pete

 

I run because I am blessed to have 2 strong legs and an able healthy body that can log multiple runs each week.

 

I run to keep my body healthy and strong.

I run for my kids so that they see a mom who takes care of her body and views physical fitness as a privilege, not to be taken for granted.

 

Women's Tri in Orlando

 

I run with my husband- taking time to spend "shoulder time" together.

 

I run even when I want to rest- I try to push myself to set goals that are obtainable and challenge myself to continue to strive for my best.

 

Goal- NYC marathon 2012

 

I run because it is cheaper than most sports. 

 

I run for the solitude- time spent alone with God and my thoughts.

 

I run because others can't run.

 

I run the race marked out for me- the one that God has ordained for me.

 

Psalm 1:2 "But her delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law she meditates day and night".
