Go Lucy Go!!!!

I felt that this was a blog moment! I was putting my sticker on and I noticed that I have sweet Lucy's sticker and my race team sticker and they pretty much say it all!

I believe that people can beat what statistics say. Look at me! To be able to get out and run like I do, I thank God. Kirk and I joined this team (Team 413) last year before our half marathon in Nashville. This bible verse became "my verse" after I was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis). It's on my shoe tag, its engraved Kirk's wedding ring, and throughout my house. There are times when I forget I have it and there are times when it is obvious to me and to no one else. I WILL NOT let it rule my life but it has made me more grateful. My life would be totally different without MS. Without it I wouldn't know my daughter. I don't know why I was blessed with MS but that alone is enough for me. You may think I am NUTS but I BELIEVE that one day, I am going to be healed of MS. I believe that with all my heart.

I said all that to say- I believe that Lucy will be healed as well. I believe we serve a God that is still in the miracle making business. I pray that God gives Lucy JOY, COMFORT, and PEACE in the upcoming days. I pray that he gives her the spunk that all 5 year old's should have!

Wonderful post! I am always amazed when you guys race. Not just because of the MS, but your determination, strength, and endurance. God is great!

I wanted to share this article about running and a study that found a rising increase in the instance of running associated injuries in children.
It would be great for you to blog about your running more!
Have a blessed day!
