Half Marathon Count down

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.

Hi Julieta,
I found your blog on Journeying with Christ. Having 'travelled light to Santiago de Compostela in May it rang true!
I have retired from full-time ministry but still have plenty to do witnessing to our Lord and Saviour.
Every blessing on your ministry

Tio Tel,
Thank you for stopping and reading my blog. we are never retired from ministry as long as we live.Every season in life has a different pace perhaps but the dedication is measured by the passion we pour in our witnessing rather than in the time we invest to do it.Keep telling of the wonderful things God has done in your life and continue to inspire the next generation.
How was Santiago de Compostela?
May God continue to bless you abundantly and keep you from harms ways.
Respectfully,
Julieta
