Choices

Up and down the road!

I have learned the road markers.

Exit 350. Exit 303. Exit 283. Exit 251. Exit 225.

I know exactly how long it should take me to get from point A to point B.

I know where the rest areas are located for my pit stops. 

These are some of the things that February taught me.

After all, I CHOSE to apply for a job in Jacksonville. I CHOSE to accept a job two to three hours away from my family. I CHOSE to keep my family at the forefront of everything I do. 

We all have choices that we are required to make each day. Some are harder than others. For every choice, there are positive considerations but also negative consequences. No one else's situation is quite like yours so do not allow other people to influence your choices. Stand on Proverbs 16:9 which says, "In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps." Only YOU, with God's guidance, can decide what choice is right for YOU. Just know that when you make your choice, you must also be ready to deal with everything that comes along with it.

I flew into Columbus, Georgia on a red eye to make it in time for a gymnastics meet. I made it!

I drove home after work on a Tuesday to surprise my teenager for her birthday dinner. I made it!

My time on the road made my days long but EVERY moment was well worth it.

What are you willing to do for the things that matter most to you?

One of the things that I do at the end of every calendar year, or at the very, very, very beginning of a brand new calendar year, is take some time to reflect. As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
