Happy Weekend Everyone!
I noticed something... I was tired! Fortunately today I got some rest before I need to travel again all next week.
I have had very little desire to get a long run in this weekend so I decided that back to back 75 minute runs will have to do.
If you have followed me even a little bit you will have noticed that I run nearly every day. That makes moments like this easier for me. Body is tired so I just back off on the ideal plan and just focus on keeping on running.
An update from last week.
The young man that was injured required heart surgery but he will be ok. It could have gone very bad but fortunately God had other plans and the incident happened under ideal conditions.
As a mother of soccer and football players it is increasingly hard for me to attend their games.
Those close to me will have noticed something about me. The LOUDEST pro/college football spectator has become the QUIETEST spectator as a mother on the sideline.
But friends, I know God wanted myself, my kids and the school there that day. It scared me but it did remind me that God is always present.

Life can change is a second. Last night was one of the scariest things I’ve experienced with my kids. Football, school and faith can be places we describe as FAMILY.
Last night our family experienced a serious injury on the field of a fellow teammate, classmate - FAMILY.
My oldest was dressed and on sideline and the other two kids were with me spectating.
I wasn’t even planning to be at this game as I was running around watching my daughter’s games. But I ended up there. Today I am grateful I was there.
The school staff, team, fans were amazing and we all prayed and cried together on that sideline.
Life can change in an instant.
Surround yourself with those that will help you navigate through life.
Thank you for listening.
What a crazy week!

Hello everyone!! Long post—— I have been super busy and everything has felt very chaotic.
Sometimes it amazes me how I get everything done in a day and I admit my life can consume my time and energy sometimes.
I am so fortunate to have completed my run and get my burpees in. I am enjoying my Burpee Challenge and especially that Katherine is staying strong with me.
I’ve been so busy that this is my first opportunity to let everyone know that
I am so happy for all those who BQ’d and have started registering for the Boston Marathon.
You have been in my thoughts. Several have asked about my plans for Boston Marathon next year.
My day for registering was Wednesday.
I remember my first BQ. The decision to apply was an easy Yes.
Each subsequent BQ has not been that easy.
Every no decision left me questioning and feeling like I was missing out.
Every yes decision resulted in logistics nightmares for this Mother of 3 - including figuring out Easter with race day being the next day.
Let me tell you without a doubt that Boston is my favorite race of all time. It is special.
I am full of gratitude that I BQ’d with my first marathon and continue to have opportunities to run in this amazing marathon.
I am fully aware of the struggles people make to get to that starting line.
The unknowns of next year consistently flood my mind and with that I am not mentally in a position to be committed to running Boston next year.
I have thought about registering so I have my spot in case by next year my thoughts change but that is not fair to those who are on the bubble.
So next year I will be at home listening online and cheering you all on.
I really love the Boston Marathon- every time the race has taught me something about myself and the strength of the human spirit.
