"All Things"

An adoptive mom who loves Christ, family, running, fitness, and all things health related.

To marathon or not to marathon…that is the question.

Someone please punch me in the throat.  I am *thinking* of doing something I said that I would never do again- run a marathon.

I hate that I want to do this!! 

Beeker and I ran a marathon to raise money for our adoption in the fall of 2010.  It was an amazing experience and we were blessed by so much love and support from our family and friends. 


Some of our family that came to cheer us on


Isn’t our family the greatest!?


26.2 and we’re still smiling!

Our marathon was a painful great experience- but when it was over I said that I would NEVER run one again.  To me, it was one of those things that I could cross off of my bucket list and not revisit.  I loved running, but would stick to 1/2s. I told my family that if I tried to sign up for another marathon that they should punch me in the throat.

-Commence throat punching-

And now the justification:

Lately I have been feeling really strong in my runs and so in love with the sport.

Running makes me feel strong, confident, in control.

I really really really need something else to focus on instead of waiting for the phone to ring.

The race I want to run is only $55 and is on June 1st- the perfect date to get me through the end of the school year.

I am feeling up for a crazy challenge.

Good reasons, right?

Still, I need to talk it over with my biggest fan- I need his blessing.

I will make my decision by the end of the week!!

Now, I need to run and eat dinner (I am making pasta primavera) and get ready for Bible Study tonight! 🙂
