I like to think every morning when I wake up that I have a “mission” to accomplish.  There is always the normal responsibilities that come  with everyday life….working, taking care of kids, planning meals, and the list goes on.

I am very disciplined with planning my day and getting my training scheduled in.  The one thing I loose site of is the most important yet so obvious, WHY DO I RUN?

You wear yourself out physically and mentally but then you have to step back and remember why you got here in the first place.

What am I really trying to pursue?  I started ultra running 3 years ago because I was so impressed by how my mind quieted and God spoke to me while I was running.  I did not have to get on my knees and pray…..running was praying for me.

My choice to pursue this passion was given to me and guided but I do loose sight of the reason I am pursuing this CHOICE!  Yes, as Robin my massage therapist stated, “Life is a marathon NOT a sprint.”  Oh Yeah!!!!! So true!!!

It is like getting slapped in the face and realigning your soul to what your choices have been made.  Thank you Robin!!!  I believe I have come into mortality with a mission in life and I will pursue my life unto its natural end!

What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good ?

~ Psalms 34:12

I love each and everyday I am here on earth.  I choose to make choices to help another.  I am blessed to have all of you!  It feels like I have had a week of sleep that I have needed !!!  Thank you my friends.
