Richard and I woke up at 3 this morning to get dressed, wake up girls, load up and make the 11 hour drive from Virginia to Georgia in time for Hanson Ellis to go to her dance classes this evening. It has been a long day and we are looking forward to climbing in own bed after a busy, but priceless weekend.
I am still in that blank state of mind after completing the Army Ten Miler this weekend. What a journey for me and what a race! Driving into our community this afternoon, I sat in the van and looked at all the streets I've run in training for this race. So much time on those routes ... early hours, mid day hours, late hours ... extreme cold, extreme heat and perfect weather days ... long runs, short runs, fast runs, slow runs ... and so much time in prayer and thought. I was very anxious about the race this weekend. I still doubted myself so much. Richard ended up being able to run with me and I just can't describe to you what a fun and memorable time we had. But I'll try:) tomorrow or Tuesday ... once I finish unpacking and catch up on a bit of sleep ... oh and catch up on some time with Richard. This is the first he's been home since he left for Kuwait! (and it's not even 8 and he's sound asleep on the bed behind me:))
Okay, I've got to go pick up Hanson Ellis from her two hours of dance. I'm sure after our whirlwind weekend, early morning and very long car drive, she's lacking some pep in her step.
To God be the Glory.
