I am already tired and it is only Tuesday. I have lots of miles to run this week and I am nervous about this. I woke up with a sore throat and am petrified about getting sick on the week of a 20 mile training run. The rain yesterday caused the already leaking breakfast room ceiling to leak even more. I feel like I have not made any progress on my FOCUS goals for the year. My house is a mess and laundry is everywhere. I feel like I am moving in circles instead in a forward motion.
So, on this run I prayed like a crazy woman for direction and guidance. I prayed for patience and grace to fill my words today. I know this will be needed with my sweet kiddos. I prayed that God would guide my day and it will be what it will be. I prayed that for today I accept this with my whole heart.
I was supposed to have a nice and easy 5 mile run. The funny thing about this run is that I ran it way too fast, but it did not feel hard one little bit! I think God moved my legs faster than planned so I could "run away" my frustrations and negative thoughts. I felt renewed when I arrived home.
So, here is to moving forward today!
