Everyday I feel I am reminded about my purpose in this triathlon. In recent weeks, days even, I have been confronted with many reasons, or suggestions to quit. The funny thing is around December I was on the fence about continuing, but in January something happened. With some incredible encouragement and prayer from my friends, and some dedicated support from people like Jeff and Brie, I suddenly realized I could do this. Massive brainstorming sessions and actions began. So many pieces started falling into place, and I have confidence that it will all work out. So I don't need to fret. I know God has a plan, and as I continue putting forth the effort, it will be rewarded. The thing is I am not actually doing this for the money. This is so beyond money, or ability. This is about doing whatever I can for this cause. So no matter what, I can not and will not give up. Giving up is not an option. When I think about not finishing the race, well, I just can't picture it. What I can picture is running across that finish line all sweaty a gross with a huge smile on my face and my hands in the air! So watch out Lavaman, here I come!

  1. My Dad is training for a marathon, so I know how taxing all of this can be. Especially so for someone with a job as time-consuming as your's. Hang in there, girl! I can't wait to see that one, special April update!

  2. Hey guys, thanks for the encouragement! So much of this race for me is emotional that having your support really means the world to me. *huggles*
