Can you believe I DID IT? I ran 39 straight days. Never taking "a day off" and giving myself the pass for just having a hard day. I had to take a self portait every day which is why I have all these ridiculous pictures. This is the last 10 days of the running streak in images.
|Right after I got off a plane with my kids from Colorado. I ran a mile in Matt's parents neighborhood. I felt like crap.|
|The very next morning, I ran with Amy Noll in MY neighborhood. Before I got on a bus with 55 high school kids. I felt even more nuts.|
|The next day we ran early in the morning in Denver. But then the NEXT DAY, we were in camp for our run. We ran 2 miles up to this sign. And about died.|
|We did the same thing the next day.|
|And the next day. We were getting tired. But we did it anyway.|
|And every day that we were there. The final day-we saw a Moose and a BABY moose. It was so freaking awesome. I mean awesome.|
|I made it home! To this sweet guy! We watched Marley and Me on the bus and I felt badly going running without him. So...I saddled him up the next morning and we went running.|
|We left the next day to go to South Carolina. The area we went to asked for a little exploring and I found this house built in 1777 and it house General Cornwallis during the Revolutionary War. Pretty dang cool for the day before July 4!|
|ANNNNNNND I made it! 4th of July means I made it 39 days straight. It definitely challenged me and I loved that. It was so weird not to run on July 5th. I ran on July 6th just cause I couldn't help it.|
But, looking back over the past two months and seeing how this running streak was accomplished, I feel confidence knowing that all I have to do is look ahead and take it one mile at a time.
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we can not see. Hebrews 11:1
