A New Season

 It's been a minute! No, wait. It's actually been 432 000...!

Alive and well and chomping as many strawberries as ever.

And while, by grace alone, all is well in our corner of the world, it doesn't take much to figure out that my season of Running the Race is over. No, I haven't hung up my running shoes. And no, I'm not giving up on my writing dreams either. I've just known for a while now that my season for detailing all of our ups and downs in blog form has come to an end. 

For the past ten+ years (!) I've been sharing my running goals, adventures, mishaps, and failures on these pages. And it's been wonderful. The camaraderie, encouragement, and shared laughs that it brought my way have been life-changing. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for indulging me all of these years and for being a part of my journey. It has meant more than you'll ever know.

Just one last thing before I go. You'll be relieved to hear that I used the past 432 000 minutes of not blogging to put in one final effort to nail my decade-long goal of running 10 kilometers in less than 50 minutes. And you'll be even more relieved to learn that, by grace and with the help of my ever-supportive husband, I finally did it. I ran a sub-50 10 km!! At the youthful age of 43... So don't ever give up on your dreams, kids!

And with that, I'm signing off for the last time. Be blessed, run like you love it, and never stop believing!
