Across the Finish Line With Disney!



This past week has been a whirlwind of fun!

First, I finished the Disney Half Marathon, on September 6th. Totally, this proves that WITH GOD all things are possible. If you remember, after completing the L. A. Marathon (26.2 looooong miles), I had gone to the gym to begin training for the Disney Half. Well, I went waaaay too fast too soon, and ended up hurting myself and in therapy all summer. So, with minimal training, I was not certain I could complete this Half, but prayed like crazy. And God graciously answered with so many answers - great weather, finishing, getting to help a gal I didn't know to the finish line. (Yes, I literally pulled her the last 1.5 miles.) PTL!

Anyhoo, finishing the race, getting to help that gal, really did make Disneyland the happiest place on earth...till it was over and I got back home!!! :)

"Is anything too hard for the LORD?..." (Genesis 18:14a).

Oh, and the second??? I'll tell ya all about the rest of the fun week tomorrow! Stay tuned! :)
