About 3 months ago I said I would probably never run a marathon (26.2 miles) again. As of today I’ve changed my mind. I would like to give Pheidippides journey at least one more try. In order for this feat to be accomplished I’ll need my body to cooperate (especially my nagging hip injuries) and my mind to cooperate (much discipline is needed).

I am feeling the itch again though! It has been almost a year since I have done any serious distance running, that I’ve even run over 5 miles, and I am really missing it! 

Running is a great blessing in my life. The benefits are enormous:

  • I sleep better
  • I am happier
  • My life is more balanced
  • I weigh less:)
  • I feel Spiritually stronger (mind, body, spirit)

I know I could run 5k’s and 10k’s and get all these benefits as well (and I plan to run some of those in the meantime), but for me the race of choice is the Marathon!  I’ve run 3 of them and I cherish the memories and the journey leading up to each!

My goal is to run my 4th marathon in May! 

I solicit your prayers for a strong body and mind!

And I’ll see y’all out on the roads!
