A LONG run

Tomorrow, starting at the butt crack of dawn, 5 a.m. to be exact, my friends and I will begin our long run from Pt. Reyes to the Golden Gate Bridge. It is approximately 66 miles. We will have a fun day out on the beautiful trails. We will run on all kinds of terrain and the day is suppose to be clear with no rain. YIPEE! A few of our generous good friends will provide some aid for us along the way. I hope we see a lot of wild animals out there as the National Seashore is just a paradise for wildlife.

Running long for me always makes me feel powerful. Running long also makes me feel vulnerable. One thing that I can always count on is a lot of time to think while I am running along. When I feel powerful and vulnerable, I always find that prayer comes easy to me. Talking to God is so easy when I am out there with myself. Tomorrow I will dedicate this run and many prayers to my Mom. Last night we found out that she has Cancer. My heart felt like someone was squeezing it so hard and I could hardly catch my breath. It's hard to breathe as I type here now. My Mom has always been my rock and it was funny that last night after my brother and Sister and I told her the bad news, she told me not to be sad, as I was her Rock. I will pray for God to give her strength and courage as she begins this fight. I will pray for myself that God gives me strength and courage too, as I am HER rock and I must be strong for her.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Kally, so sorry about your Mom...66 miles is a tribute to health, and lets all pray she'll be able to recover and have more life going for her.
