On April 25th, I received confirmation that I had been accepted into the New York City Marathon for 2012. I was so excited to be picked since it is a lottery system and the chances of being picked are 1 in 9. I began to think about the time I would be spending training for this event and asked God to show me how He could get glory through this endeavor (Romans 11:36). I remembered that my friend, Leaha, had been encouraging me to write a blog and thought that this is a great way to record my own marathon training journey as well as my own daily walk with Christ.
So here it goes... I will be starting my official training in July for the NYC marathon which is on November 4th. In the meantime, I plan on strengthening my body by building a consistent runnning base plus strengthening my core muscles to head off injuries.
Also as a Christian woman, I am building and strengthening my faith by running the day to day with Jesus at my side.
My favorite verse is Philippians 1:6 which says " being confident of this, that he who began a good work in (me) will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus". I am confident that God will see me through this training for the marathon as well as my daily living.
