A Re-Run You Won't Hate

Thursday, October 11, 2012

I've never done this before on my blog, but I thought today was a good day to bring back an old blog I wrote back in July.

In just about a week, I'll be one sleep away from my first half marathon. And, just in case you jumped on the LDRICHEL bandwagon late, it's important to me that everyone knows WHY I am doing this race...and who it's dedicated to.

Here is a link to a blog I wrote about an inspiring friend, who WILL be at that race when I cross the finish line. I hope to go straight over to her and sit right in her lap!

We made some shirts...and, of course, I'll be wearing one. Here is the awesome design that my best college buddy (who will also be attending) came up with:



Had a little snafu with the printers...so the design will be on a gray shirt (not green) and actually, my tek shirt for the race is pink. Perfect for this month...AND the fact that I'm a Sweat Pink Ambassador now. Ha! It'll match my shoelaces!

I'm getting pretty excited. But, first...to tackle my Austin business trip. Excited about that too!

    Leah, I wonder if you might dare to start to realise that just as Alli is an inspiration to you, you are an inspiration to many of us.

I'll be so thinking of you on 20th October. It's going to be a great day!

God bless

- and thank you.

    Wow... I'm at work and decided to go ahead and chart my food intake, thus far. I'm not great with my blogging, but I do try and read blogs more (yours have become favorites). Anyway, all of that is to say, I'm glad I took the time at work to read this. It really blessed my spirit. God is so good and to see how he shines through people never ceases to amaze me. I love the "I run because I can..." And, the friendship you have with Allison is so beautiful. Thank you for re-sharing that blog, and thank you for being an inspiration... for getting up and running in spite of! Best of Luck to you October 20th! I'll be rooting for you!
