Well, we did it!!! We finished the Country Music Half Marathon! It was awesome! It had been over 5 years since I last ran this race...Wow, do times change! It was so awesome, inspiring, motivating, challenging, and FUN! We had a great group of people RUN FOR ONE MORE to benefit and raise awareness for Room For One More. Some fabulous people gave and many people raised support to run and at race time $10,000 was raised to give to families for adoption grants! We are so happy to be a part of this organization!
The weather held out just long enough for most of our group to finish the race with over 32,000 people running, it was total madness. I loved every minute of it!
If nothing else, it was a HUGE reminder that we can really do ANYTHING we commit to doing and most EVERYTHING we FEAR is simply MIND OVER MATTER and of course....GOD!
I was inspired to see so many people running that I would never imagine to be runners...People ran for so many reasons and some in memory of others. I realized once again, LIFE IS SHORT...I MUST LIVE IT BIG!
I have felt kind of stuck in a spot for a while now in life...It is a challenge to sort out how to be a good mom and still live out the other passions in my life. I am working on it, and it is a slow moving process so bare with me. That is why I have not posted for a while now....I am not sure where I am headed next. God seems to be moving my life in a different direction than I would have imagined, and I want to be faithful and at the same time I am kind of feeling a little in limbo...Guess that is where faith comes in Lord knows this is an area I could use some help with!
I think I am about ready to start posting more about the stuff in my mind, so if you are still reading my blog...stay tuned! (that means you mom and whoever else out there is reading....Cheri)ha ha
in the meantime check out some photos of the marathon and the little ladies!
