Pushin some weight...

Today was the first day that I trained with my kids. I have a triple jogger (yes, my three sit right in a row). I get quite a few stares jogging through the neighborhood. My goal today was to make it 2.5 miles jogging the whole way. Now, each year, the amount of weight that I push increases. I was a little discouraged when I went out a few weeks ago and couldn't run as far as I wanted to. Then I added it all up...without adding in the stroller, my kids alone have a combined weight of 86 pounds! So, I did it. It was a slow pace but I finished. I am so excited for my first race coming up the beginning of June! I am thankful...thankful that I am able to run, thankful that my little ones let me get a run in today, thankful for my health, thankful for the challenge ahead, and for this weather!! God gave me this verse in my study today:

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. ~James 1:17
