It’s been two months since I first wrote these words…
I feel just about everything except brave today.
I felt brave seven months ago when I decided I would train for my first marathon the following spring.
I felt brave when I filled out my registration for the Fargo Marathon and sent it in.
I felt brave as I started my marathon training plan in February with my eyes set on conquering my next running goal.
I even felt brave as I finished my 20-miler a month ago, the longest run I would do during my marathon training.
Today, the day before my first marathon, those brave feelings escape me, so I’m writing this now to remind myself of the brave moments that led me to this one.
I’m also writing this to remember that I am not brave on my own. I am brave because my God looks at me and says, “You can be brave because I am with You.”…
I’m wearing my Be Brave shirt from Cents of Style today as we drive north to Fargo for my first marathon. It is just the encouragement I need running through my head as the time to run (a REALLY long way) draws closer. Be brave – embrace it with me (and maybe pray for an extra does of it for me?!) today!
Just a few days later, I completed my first marathon and it was incredible. You can read all about the race here, but you should know that running those 26.2 miles made me feel like I could do just about anything. Two months later and I’m still feeling that bravery. I even signed up for my second marathon!
