Running Buddy

I had the most beautiful run this morning!

I've been catching up with a friend on Facebook lately who is training for the Chicago Marathon in October. She is home visiting her parents for a week or two and I told her that we should run together sometime. Well today was that day! She was scheduled for 6 miles according to her training plan, so we hit the park a little before 6 this morning and had the most wonderful run! It was so cool outside and very low humidity (what?! In July??). It almost felt like a fall run this morning...my fave! We went a little over 6 miles in an hour and it.felt.great.

I'm always nervous about running with someone new. I never know how they pace, what their goals are (speed, time?), their run/walk pattern, or maybe no pattern, etc. But I think I may have found the perfect running buddy! We kept on perfect pace the entire time, I never felt like I was dragging her slower, or vice versa. So YAY for a FABULOUS start to the day!!

I am going to finish my last two lesson plans for Bible School this morning so that I can finish my list, then the kids and I are heading to PB to gather supplies. Tyler is already out working on the set this morning...he is such a wonderful helper. In studying for yesterday's lesson for Day 2 of VBS, it was all about worship: how we can worship God. At one point students are asked to list ways they can worship God. I need to tell Tyler today that his help and his dedication to VBS is most definitely a form of worship! God appreciates all he's doing...and so do I!

I hope ya'll have a great Wednesday! Hey, week's halfway over!!

Hooray for a running buddy! :) lol I would definitely NOT be a good running buddy for ya. ;)

VBS sounds like so much fun and Tyler sounds like such a sweetie. And isn't it fun to read/ participate in children's messages? The messages are so straight forward and basic - you can worship in so many ways, not just by singing in a church! Love it! And love you darlin'. :)

That is great! I have a running buddy but she makes me go a little faster, which isn't necessarily a bad thing ;-)

Good luck with the VBS stuff, how awesome that Tyler is helping!
