I am currently reading three different books. They all have the common theme of "Knowing God". I am pointed to the reminder that as I seek to "know God"- He will reveal Himself to me. There is nothing more important-than developing and growing my relationship with Him. As I "Die to Self" and seek Him-Joy and Peach will come. I am fervently seeking Him and anticipating the fulfillment that will come with a deeper relationship with Him. My current prayer is that He will reveal my sin to me and constantly remind me that I only need worry about my sin and leave others to Him.

Today's run was pure misery! WHERE OH WHERE IS FALL??????
Tuesday, October 13, 2009
Susan and Sandra both finished in 4:31. Great time! Now the story is that Sandra fell 10 feet from the finish line. Poor Sandra has permanent scars on her knees from all of the falls that she has suffered. She actually has gotten MUCH better at staying on her feet, but after 26 miles-you can't even feel your legs anymore-much less know for sure if you are picking them up high enough. Anyway-she fell-do not know all the details. The story is that the volunteers came out to help her. She thought they were other runners and told them to just go on and finish-typical Sandra Fashion! Sonja's report was that they drug her across the finish line-Sandra reported that they helped her across.
She has a laceration on her head or face (don't have the whole story) that required stitches. The group spent the next few hours looking for Sandra, Sandra calling me to call them-going to wrong hospitals-and just generally stumbling around as if in the dark-well I guess they were in the dark. You cannot imagine what it is like in a crowd of tens of thousands of runners to try and reconnect with your group. This after running 26 miles and just wishing you could sink down in a hot tub somewhere and then take a LONG nap.
Sonja is back and the others are coming home today. CANNOT WAIT TO HEAR THE WAR STORIES!
GREAT JOB- SAM SANDRA & SUSAN!

Running are Sandra, Susan and Samantha. This is Samantha's inaugural marathon-but she is a VERY talented athlete. Sandra and Susan are multiple marathon veterans. They have all trained hard and done great during training. We are expecting great things from them.
Traveling along with the runners as the "Support Team" are Babs and Sonja. I am sure there will be plenty of laughter and lots of fun over the weekend.
Good Luck and I KNOW you will make us all proud.
"Both those whose hope is in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles,
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31
