Passion is a gritty kind of love, tough and

optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

Well, the verdict is in, confirmed with X-rays, I have a stress fracture!  Proof that I am stressed!  People didn’t really believe me!

I was supposed to run the Detroit Marathon in October with some friends to raise money for 4-more that brings clean drinking water to Rwandan Orphans.  My plan is still to do that, albeit a little delayed.  My new goal is the Martian Marathon in April 2012.  It means I will be by myself instead of with friends but it means there still is a plan.  So please mark your calendar to come cheer me on April 14, 2012! 

My goal is still to raise $2620, $100 for every mile that I run/complete.  That means that if you put like eleven cents in a jar from now till the say I run you will help me to not only meet my goal, but EXCEED it! (.11*254 = $27.94)!!!

I plan on supporting my friends as they run the marathon and loving on them!  With or without a boot!  Hopefully without! 

So that’s it!  I will do a little better in managing my training (because that is what probably caused it – too much too soon the doc said)!

PRAISE THE LORD! When this is all over, I can still wear heels!  Straight from the Dr.’s mouth!  WOOO HOOOOOOO!!

and more good news... it means I'm really a runner!

Romans 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

FYI - I do own those shoes, but those are not my feet! They are SASSY!

Glad to hear the mystery is solved...and that you will be able to wear heals again!
Those stress fractures are very painful, but I'm glad you are coming to the reunion, you can put your foot up when you're done cooking, LOL!
Love you!
