A Three-Mile Mark!


Did you hear the "Wahoo!" over here in Michigan?? I jogged for THREE MILES today!!

I had done it once before, on my 46th birthday, but I hadn't run three miles since. I wasn't sure I could do it. But I've been experimenting with long, slow runs, rather than short fast ones, and then increasing my time every week.

Today, as I neared the end of my thirty-five minutes (I know – it's terribly slow, but that's the pace I go), I was at two and three-fourths miles. I simply couldn't let the three-mile mark stay out of reach, so I just kept going! It was only one more lap anyway, but I did it!!

And yes, I am one and a half years older.

It feels sooooo good to be able to do that, especially at my age.

Thank You, Lord, for the strength to jog three miles today! J

Praise God and Congratulations! Lisa, this is an amazing accomplishment - you should feel amazing.

But you you know you can do it and you'll have to do it again. I'll be praying for you.

Enjoy Michigan - I haven't been there in 10 years, but LOVED it.

Take care!

You know it, Laura!

I am very thankful for the ability to do some distance running, but you know that it's really only one more step to another level. ;)

Thank you for your prayers! We're heading to Canada tomorrow, Lord Willing, to go up to the base there. God knows, we need His strength to do His work.

God bless!
