I loved this definition of a runner, so true – You Just Run . . .

I was on Day 76 of my RunStreak and plans were to continue until Valentine’s Day.  But, really, to be honest, I was thinking of a nice round number like 100 days to end on.  I’m pretty sure if I got to 100 I would have found a new extension for my RunStreak, I enjoyed it that much.

When I received the text that my daughter, Jenna’s, water had broken, I, of course, had Jenna and baby first on my mind, but I did pack my running clothes.  You know, there might have been a moment to run that one quick mile to continue the streak.  What I realized was there was a moment most likely that Wednesday, as she was laboring, but I knew where my heart was and it wasn’t with running at the moment.  Little sweet Allison Rose Schott’s birth was the perfect ending to my RunStreak.  Such a way to celebrate!!

There are no adequate words to describe my feelings.  I am so over-the-top in love with this sweet girl. 

I am so thankful for the gift of watching Matt and Jenna as they enter into this new world of parenthood.  I love to watch them love each other and care and love  this new little miracle-gift they have.  My heart is beyond full!!

I am entering a new season of my life in a few different ways.  I was bicycling with my husband, Mike, when I came to that realization.  As I rode with smiles and tears, I came to the conclusion that a new season is to be celebrated.  I am going to celebrate this year!!!

I mentioned in a previous post that I was thinking about signing up for a marathon this year Well . . . that is how I am celebrating this year of changing seasons . . . I am signing up for the CIM, which is in December.  I will also be running two half-marathons – The Parkway Half Marathon on May 4th and the Four Bridges Half Marathon which is in October.  I will keep you posted. 

As I celebrate new seasons, being a grandmother to a precious sweet little Allie and life . . . I remember the One, who gave His all for me. The One who has loved me through so many seasons of my life and has been ever-faithful and always with me.  I give thanks to the Lord for All He has done and has been in my life and look forward to this next season as I walk with Him.

With a thankful heart,

Patty 🙂
