My daughter-in-law is a marathon runner and has put a challenge before me. She and my son live in Missouri, but she has signed up for a half marathon in a city near me in February and has challenged me to run with her. Gramster running a half marathon - how cool is that!!
Well, I have accepted her challenge with great determination because my son just doesn't see that I can do it. Mind you, he has good reason to feel that way. I am fairly physically fit and walk 2 miles as many days a week as my schedule permits, but running has never been my great strength.
I can do this thing!!!! If for no other reason than to prove to him and everyone that I can do this thing!!! All the references Paul made to running the race set before me are just screaming in my mind. I know those references are spiritual, but I can still do this as I press forward spiritually as well.
OK - I'm interested in the support of my friends in this thing. My daughter-in-law said we could wear matching shirts and I might just have "Gramster" printed on the back of mine as well. What do you think?
