Today is day one of training for my 8th marathon and Brent’s 2nd. Yes, Brent is going to run another marathon! How did I convince him of this?

My escape from reality has been my runs lately. Although, I guess I’m not really escaping reality when I spend most of that time thinking about what is going on in our lives right now.

I am experiencing something I never have before. It’s something I don’t know how to deal with on my own and am thankful that I choose to have God alongside me.
