I Did It
I know you are probably asking, "What the heck did you do?"
I did this.
With only 5 weeks left to train (really only 4 1/2 because I take a break before the race), I am in this. Not to win it, but to hopefully beat my times from last year when I did the Buckhead Border Challenge Relay.

However, losing my child will always be a part of who I am. And it is part of why I am doing this race. I am doing it for the ones who can't. For Ezraela, the child I lost, and for those with debilitating medical conditions: interstitial cystitis, lupus, ehlers danlos syndrome, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and the list goes on and on, who can only dream of competing in an event such as this. I do it to give hope. To let people know that they can.
In the midst of any hardship or suffering it may be difficult to believe that a better ending, a fuller life, is just ahead. Our first challenge is to hear the promise. God has promised us more than we can ask or imagine. Believing comes next.
