Put a Fork in Me! I’m Done!

From So Young:

On Sunday, I carried each of you in my heart remembering every kindness, each prayer and word of support, loving my family with meals, etc.  It energized me to have my beloved James running this race with me. I was strengthened to know my friends were running the race with us. What an encouragement to be cheered on by Sungjin, one of my dearest sisters in Christ. 

So Young and Sungjin

I felt surprisingly strong until the last few miles. My aches and pains didn’t make it easy. Those hills made it difficult, too. But I do love those hills. My slowest of six half marathons, but it will certainly be my most memorable.

  1. The exhaustion in your tone is palpable.
    I gotta say it though, wiseacre that I am:
    The original marathoner croaked @ the end of his marathon, having delivered his message.

    Now, passing out is one thing, but….?

    Surely your message is more complex, positive + needs tending every day.

    “For we carry this treasure in earthen vessels (jars of clay, if you like), that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God + not from ourselves.

    We are afflicted in every way…. But not crushed.
    Perplexed…. But not despairing.

    2 Cor 4:7,8

    Have you considered just smearing butter on all your food until your taste buds are less irate?

    Love you much,
