God with us....or atleast me!

I did it! I did it! I did it! 14 miles today! Wow, what a great way to start a day!

I had a friend (he is 50!!) to run the middle 8 miles with me! I ran the first 4.......feeling great, he joined in, we ran, busy roads.......still feeling great......then at 12......i ran home! Literally.

The last 1 1/2 mile.....I put my ipod back in..... and had a little bit of Mercy Me goodness.

Then, at .80 to go......this song came on! Now, I like the Mercy Me version, but I really like the version down below (my bro-in-law) better. A little up-tempo.

So, that last .80 i ran.......hands raised in the air, smile on my face, probably almost skipping at a sub 9 minute mile...... praising God, thanking Him, and just beside myself! I was doing it! I was running it! 14 miles!

What a great day! Enjoy the video! I know just thinking of this song makes me happy!

I can't wait until breakforth (here in AB in January) when I can se Mercy Me live again.

CONGRATS on your run. I don;t run that far, but I always pray my last little bit,,, He is my strength.
