The Boston Marathon…

The Boston Marathon…

The High, Holy Grail of marathons is being run today in Boston.  I have always wanted to run in Boston, but after last year’s bombing I became sure that was the direction that I want to go.  Now, I understand that I could raise money and be able to run, but I would really like to qualify.  However, that is no easy feat.  My fastest marathon is 4 hours 35 minutes.  They are looking for Sub 3 hours 15 minutes for someone between the age of 40-45.  That is faster than I run most 5Ks  Sound impossible?  Yes.  Is it impossible?  No.  I believe with God’s help anything is possible. 

Meb Keflezighi was today’s winner.  It was the first time an American had won since 1983.  On his Facebook page, he quotes Philippians 4:13… I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  What great words as we face difficulties in life.  I can’t do the impossible, but Christ can do the impossible through me.

While it may take me a while to reach my goal, I know that it is possible.  In fact, anything is possible with Christ’s help.  That is who I really need to lean on.
