I went, I saw, and I conquered!!!
Yes, I did
You know, it all started as a joke. I took up the challenge and here I am.
Life is all about challenges. We only excel as far as we can take up challenges when they come up.
I have a "Lil Sis" here. I recall that sometime last summer; I told her I wanted to do a 5K by this summer.
At that point in time, I was just learning to walk. Yes, learn to walk. I could barely walk 1,000ft without heavy breathe. Here I am today doing 5Ks and 10Ks without any problem.
When the challenge to do a Half Marathon came up early this week, I told myself I could do it. There was never any doubt that it was doable, the fear was that I might collapse with dehydration or my legs could fail.
Today, I walked. I moved, I crawled, but you know what? I made it in 3hours 51minutes. Yes I did it. I am so totally proud of me!!!! The Lord was with me all the way and I bless Him for the ability to be self-motivated.
So dear friends, if I can, you can too. I am not relenting. I will keep pushing on and eventually aim for a full Marathon. One day, I will do it. Yes, a Walking Marathon!
So, having conquered this, it is time to polish it.
I am so happy. I sure can do all things through Him!!!!!
