I am a tiny bit stiff today, but not bad(not nearly as bad as I expected)! We were in Santa Barbara the last few days, with friends, & did a half marathon there, yesterday. Running is always an interesting thing for me. As much as I am a planner, I kind of go into my running ventures a little half-assed, I have to say. Meaning no rigorous training schedule, not too much concern over how fast I will be, etc. Which is good, since I am not incredibly speedy. Anyway, I always manage to finish & have a good time. I've found in those challenging moments in a race, where you feel like you can't or don't want to go any farther(believe me I have many), that is when I rely on God. Whether I am thanking Him for all the lovely scenery that is around me, or reminding myself about how blessed I am to have my health & body & be able to run...or just praying "please get me up this hill" it's some of those moments I feel Him the most.
It was a good trip...now I am looking forward to whatever our next race will be. I have a few ideas & who knows maybe I'll get a little more serious about the training one of these days :)
