I was sure today was going to be a BLAH! Day. I couldn't find my MO JOOOOO!
It was my day to run my long run!
I missed it on Saturday as I was partying with Beth Moore and the Siesta's learning to take my ground back!
Then there was the Pine Wood Derby! My third born did a great job creating his car!
And then we wished our dad farewell as he set off for a very very far away place!
NO TIME FOR THE HOUR AND A WHILE RUN!
Sunday was much the same...full of adventure!
Today was a beautiful day for a run!
SO SO SO much to do!
If I did not do this long run I would surely pay for it!
So I completed my morning routine and said "SELF...... you are not doing this for you! You are running for Parul.
If it were about you, you could get away with sabotaging yourself!
BUT YOU CAN NOT AND WILL NOT SABOTAGE THE FREEDOM OF ANOTHER.
So I chose to not be a stumbling block for me or for Parul.
And checked my email (just in case....in case what I do not know....)!
In the IN BOX was this.....

There was no rethinking. There was no slacking!
My first sponsor sponsored me and this is for REAL!
This is BIG!
This is BEYOND ME!
I set out and ran...
Ran 6.2 miles...easy...slow and steady!
WITH OUT headphones!
As I was running I realized that this hour and a while was so peaceful and energizing!
AND to make my running day full and without void....
My As Our Own Race Shirt arrived.
As Team Bayou City Fellowship running for Team Dallas: Parul we decided to order shirts!
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
As March 25th draws near my miles will increase until I reach that wonderful number....
Slow and Steady I will run!
I will run for FREEDOM!
So Parul can have the FREEDOM I experience daily!
So that she does not have be bound by a yoke of slavery!
**If you too would like to be a part of this adventure by way of sponsorship, or just encouragement please know that I appreciate your support****
