Miracle in Blackfoot!

So Saturday Morning I had a YW activity at 8 AM. I was sort of dreading my long run and not quite sure I would make myself do it. Miraculously, one of the Mother's of a YW was there and I sort of mentioned that I was suppose to do a long training run and she asked if she could go with me. (What? You want to subject yourself to running in 10 degree weather on Saturday, with me?) And she was awesome! She lives on my street and she is going to do all my Saturday long runs with me. OH MY STARS...someone upstairs knew that one of my deepest desires was to have a running partner, and lead me to her. I'm sure I talked her ear off the entire time, but before I knew it our run was finished and I felt awesome! No More Runners Rut!

So.Happy.For.You!!! Congrats on finding a running partner. That is wonderful. I can't wait to hear more about your training. You are going to do awesome at Salt Lake. Heavenly Father really does answer our prayers, even if they seem "little." They are important to Him too.

That is so AWESOME~!! I had the same kind of experience and have a running buddy for my long runs now too! So fun.

I would bet that you are an answer to her prayers as well! So exciting.

Ditto! I prayed for running friends and then came along M&M, Smith, Poky Girl, Niki, Foxy and others. That was a few years ago, but we're still running together. I think God knows that (for us) running is more than just running.

That's great! Nothing like a buddy to get you through the hard runs.
