Sunday I did a 5k. It was special in several ways.
The biggest? It was the first race my family was at since I ran the Mackinaw Bridge race about 5 years ago. Patrice was a baby at the time and while she will always be the baby of the family, at 6 years old, she is definitely no longer a baby. My girls even made me a post to cheer me on. It is fantastic, but it shows their reals names, so it has been cropped out of this picture.
The next amazing thing was the opportunity to run across the 50-yard line at the University of Michigan when I reached the finish line.
I am also still giddy over setting a personal record for a 5k Sunday. I ran my fastest mile ever at 11 minutes and 40 seconds and overall time of 39 minutes 5 seconds. I still feel like a rockstar.
And it is all to the glory of God. He brought be from a wheelchair to pushing my body to see how far and how fast it can go…just because I can.
I am so thankful for what He has done in my life.Survive til you Thrive!
