Well today it's about that latter. I could do it for myself. However, we made an addition to our family yesterday. Isaac Elliot was born. So I may run to promote my health but I do it for my family.
This is me in the OR holding him and taking his picture. God gave us a great capacity to love. We have been blessed to over flowing. Isaac makes number 4, so now we are a family of 6 and can expect long wait times at every restaurant because most only have tables for 4 or 5. No longer can I fit my family in a sedan. So many things change but they are all for the better.
I was able to get my goal of 100 miles in for August. Actually got in 101.5 miles which is a little less than last year.
What I can tell you about running for life is that you have to do if for both before mentioned reasons. I stopped over the winter last year and my body slowly gained the weight back. I started feeling uncomfortably big again. It's better to just keep running for life. So you can have a life to give and share to the ones you love. If you have stopped before, start again. Don't give up. I'll meet up with you at the finish line.
