This is a condensed perfect 10 update this week. I'm super busy :-) *The something about myself part - oh and ugh! OK, well I haven't run over a consecutive mile since junior high. Last year, I honestly didn't believe I could run a straight mile. Over the past week or two, my friend Mist and I started running 2.7 miles without stopping. Then we walk 2 miles. Then we run the last mile back. That equals 3.7 miles of running and 2 miles of walking (5.7 total). I never dreamed I could actually do that. Back when I was in junior high, I had gotten myself up to running several miles a day. I remember that I had ran 5 miles just a few times, but I think I was regularly doing 3-4. I had these crazy transient plans of joining the army or something. Anyway, running on my own, by myself was a part of who I was as an early teen. It brought me a deep sense of joy and accomplishment. As the years passed, I never believed I could go there again. I feel so blessed to have friends who love to run with me. They'll set their schedules to mine so we can coordinate. It was Mist, in particular, who has really pulled it out of me. Without having a good friend like her, I don't think I'd have ever "found myself" in this area again. True friendships are something to greatly covet. That's something else about me, I greatly value my close friends.
Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.
