Multitude Monday Vol 2 - Race Edition

It's already been another week and I have so many blessings again this week.  Is there a limit?  I think not.


Having legs that carried my body 13.1 miles to the finish line.

A husband who allowed for all my training.


Husband who pushed me out the door when I didn't want to go.


Children who think running is fun.


Children who are inspired in exercise.


Children who ride three plus hours in a car rather well.


Great Little Campers.


Family & Friends cheering.


Husband who drives almost everywhere we go.


Nice text messages prior to the race.


Nice text messages after the race.


Phone calls of well wishes prior to the race.


Phone calls of congratulations after the race.


Long hot showers (as apposed to short shut the water off during camper shower) at home.


A healthy heart that will pump for 2:12 minutes while I push and push.


A loving hug from my husband after the race.


Words whispered in my ear, "I'm so proud of you".


A sign on the course held by a teenager that said,

"Hello Complete Stranger
I am proud of you"


Water Stops.




Gel packs.


Other runners.


Grandma's Sponsors & City of Duluth.


All volunteers.


Friends who get up early to bring me to the DECC.


Support and strength for the past four months.


Shoes that kept my feet, ah, my normal feet!


Shoes that kept my back injury free.

You can link here with your own gratitude post.  Blessings to you this week!
