I am only four days away from running my second Half Marathon, I had a 10 week training, well... actually eight week training. I kind of injured my knee and was not able to run for two weeks. Honestly I didn't think I could run again, the pain was severe at one point and my knee felt really weak. Friends and family, all prayed for me and God heard the prayers I believe.
Tomorrow I will prepare my bags and take my flight in the afternoon, getting out of town to the mountains before running the Half Marathon. Can't wait to smell the fresh crisp air on the top of the mountain.
Last year I ran the Half Marathon in Philadelphia in a 21 degree weather, but I had my friend by my side so the cold was not so bad. This year it will be warmer weather in 40 degrees, but it will feel colder as I will cross the finish line without the cheer of that friend. My other friend told me not to worry, he promised to never leave me or forsake me, he loves me for who I am and he is coming along, his name is Jesus Christ.
