A Run To Remember

I ran today. That in itself is not different than every other day.  I’ve run every day in April.  But today my run moved me to tears.  I’m travelling this week for a national wine marketing conference.  This is my view on my run today. 
I’ve run four marathons, a dozen half marathons and lots of smaller races.  What I saw in news coverage from Boston makes me physically ill. Two weeks ago I made the decision to run another marathon.  I’ll never be fast enough to run Boston, but I want to run a big race. And now a group of cowards has made me nervous to run a big race.  But I am still a runner.  And I will continue down the path that has been set out for me.
Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1
But those that hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isiah 40:31
I’ll keep running.  Even if I don’t understand.


  1. We shouldn’t go quietly into the night. Time to figure this out and be strong, but I also comepletely understand the worry and fear this event has triggered. Hang in there, and remember you are not running alone.


  2. Beautiful!

  3. Simple and boldly stated … great job, Jeanette!
