Up Up and Away

When you have hit bottom there is only one place to go....UP!!

The past month God has placed several people in my life that carried me through the days and nights of uncertainity. When my hubby was diagnosed with cancer it seems time stood still. I didn't want to move forward because I was fearful of what the next day may bring. All you want to do is go back and take it away.

This week I have felt God tugging at my heart to push through and KEEP ON KEEPING ON...despite the unknown, challenges and heart break that may or may not lay ahead I will push on.


My husband is working so hard with the hopes of some mobility and movement in his new leg. The PT is brutal and the pay off is small right now. We both know that any fight is worth it, if at the end we are together and he is alive.

With this I am feeling INSPIRED to train and push myself. I need an "athlete" state of mind to push through the reps of PT, to care for my three blessing solo, to get up each day and encourage my husband.

I am not sure what this may look like. I am seriously considerin Eugene in May. There are some obstacles such as cost, time and travel but I am not ruling it out.

God has given me legs and a heart for running and want to keep that door open.

Throughout this process with my husband I know the most important piece it that God is glorified!! So I am swinging the door opening, fighting with all that I am, and trusting where God takes me....(running, I hope)

Are you feeling inspired?? Who wants to do ROCKY air fist jabs with me??? Let's do this!

Ah Harm, God is really using you. This speaks to me this morning. I woke up struggling to get moving and questioning why I train. Your words really helped me remember why I do it....so much of it helps me to be strong in other ares of my life. Training hard tests my limits and gives me strength in so many things. I'm inspired by you. And if you run Eugene, I should be there to cheer you on since my hubby is doing it.

I've faced some challenges recently (although NOTHING like what you are going through) and it prompted me to register for my first full marathon. I needed that goal, that positive thing to work towards. I totally get why you want to keep training and push yourself--I think it's incredibly useful for our souls too. So do it, if you can :) Praying for your husband and family. God will be glorified!
