No PR to claim
No Bib #
No Finish Line crossed
Sometimes it's not about YOU at all.....it's about those who need a little piece of you to make their race something to remember......
I was part of the "Spectator Extraordinaire" Team
|Devon, Marnee, Me & Ryan (Harmony's hubby)|
I headed down to the Eugene marathon to support me friends Meredith & Harmony as they both took on another 26.2.
We had signs (thanks to Devon!!)
We had cowbell!!!
Let me tell you......Ryan can handle a cowbell like no other.
We are all anxiously awaiting his "Spectators Guide" to be released. :) He was the ultimate guide around the course!!
It was one of those weekends where you can so clearly see God's hand in bringing people together.
God knew that Meredith's legs would give up on her and that she would need Marnee to be by her side for 12 miles to complete the race
|she was feeling a little better when I was blessed to join them for last few miles:)|
God knew that Harmony would need a little encouragement at the end of the race and gave me fresh legs to be blessed enough to run the last 7 miles with her.
God knew the conversations we would have the night before the race with Harmony and Ryan about the battle they face with Ryan's cancer. He knew how that conversation ..........their realness and peace.....will truly stick with me forever.
God knew how much it would mean for Ryan to be there and cheer for his sweet wife and see her cross that finish line
There were laughs, conversations and moments that will forever be engrained in me.
God gives us people to run beside in life......because when we hit a wall - we need a sweet face to come beside us and pick us up and stick by us.
I have had those moments in my life and in my running that I have had my own "spectators" carry me through........ and I am beyond blessed to have been on the other side of it this time around!!
Thank you friends for some more Inspired Miles!!!
