I conquered another milestone in this season of my life today. I completed the St. Jude 5K. I am very pleased to tell you that my official time was 34 minutes. (Pretty good for a girl whose body has been put through the RINGER the past 7 months, dontcha think?!?)
I didn't cross that finish line alone either. My awesome brother and sister-in-law never left my side (even when I had to stop and walk a minute). Today was another emotional day for me. Actually, this past WEEK has been emotional. No, I do not need to take anti-depressants--it's simply part of this battle that is raging on and I think it's perfectly normal and GOOD for me to release these emotions (sorry if you happen to be the one who "sets" the tears off--it's not "you" --just quite simply the ride of this journey).
I actually think I am going to frame this year's race bib and medal alongside my last year's full, 26.2 marathon race bib and medal. After all...these are my two marathons. :0)
I head back to the hospital for round #10 next week. Last week's visit to my oncologist was a good visit. He said my blood counts and all of my levels "look GREAT!". Praise the Lord!! I am so thankful and blessed beyond measure.
I took numerous pictures along the way today that I plan on posting as soon as I figure out how! HA! It's been a year since I've done that and I am going to have to call my sis-in-law to walk me through the process. Not a "techi" person...my friend that passed away this year always made fun of my lack of knowledge in this area....that's what friends are for, right?! LOL
Anyway--I'm off to rest and relax. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!! God bless you!!
Until next time,
