"For a true hero isn't measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart." -Zeus, from the Disney movie, Hercules.
I never thought I'd be writing this post. But in a week, I'm running my first half-marathon.
When I started this weight loss journey earlier this year, I didn't plan on a half-marathon being part of that journey. I literally never thought about it.
It was not part of my plan. In fact, I barely thought about running a 5K. I knew it was something I should do, but whether I would do it was another story.
And here I am.
I am so nervous just thinking about all of it. So nervous that yes, I could puke.
I honestly am just ready to be running the race already. There really is something that is just so peaceful about some good tunes, a pair of tennis shoes and the road. I'm sure that last part might sound really hokey and cheesy, but really, I do love running.
I want to take this time to say thank you to God and to my cheerleaders.
First, I literally could not have done any of this without God right there with me. I have chanted Philippians 4:13 more times than I can count and every time, God has heard me. When I was weak, He was strong EVERY SINGLE TIME. Thank you.
Second, to my cheerleaders. I couldn't have done this without you either. You push me to take one more step each week. I think about y'all when I run every time. You make me put my money where my mouth is and I am so thankful for every single one of you.
