Well, I caught myself feeling sorry for myself this morning. I didn't really want to run because I feel I'm in a place where I can't achieve my goal. I remember back when I started running a couple of year ago I was always excited about what I realized I could do. Now I continually catch myself thinking about what I can't do. This is not a good spot to be in! I don't know if I'm going to run OKC in three weeks, the last thing I want to do is waste a lot of time and money to have another failed attempt at qualifying for Boston!

1 Peter 1:3

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
