Six months ago (or so) I decided to do the MetroSouth Biggest Loser Challenge. 3 months of getting your life back. It sounded insane and sometimes it was. But because of that challenge, I completed a half marathon. I didn't run the whole thing, but I finished and even though I always say 'I didn't run the whole thing' I was proud of myself for completing it. Not in a prideful way, just in an accomplished sort of way.
Sunday night my friend Katie sends me a text 'want to run a marathon for a good cause?' I didn't even think twice about my answer 'yes' about 1 minute after I just thought 'what did I get myself into?' but it didn't matter, if God puts something before you, you can complete it. So on Oct 16, 2011, I will be running the FULL marathon. Starting my training today, that means no more eliptical.
We are running for clean water. 1 in 8 people don't have clean drinking water. Imagine that because I really can't. I toss water down the sink when its been sitting overnight because it tastes 'stale'. Oh my word.
$1 = clean water for an African for a year. One well = clean drinking water for a village for a lifetime.
I'm not surprised at the things God puts before me, I'm just amazed that He choses me to bring Him glory.
So many needs, so little time, so I better start moving! Time's a-wastin'!
