Training and lovin' it...



I love to workout. I like to run. And these ladies are a big part of my enjoyment when it comes to fitness. I participate in evening workouts on campus after a day in the office. We all come together from different offices, different backgrounds, but the same goal - to get through the next hour of workout. This group has allowed me to go further with fitness than I thought I could. We all work hard during workout, but a huge part of it is that we all really like one another and have a great time in workout and outside of it. We have Friday night dinners, encourage each other on with our families and husbands, laugh over happenings in the office... A few of them have husbands who are also students - so we share in the studies and discipline of student life. Their encouragement has enabled me in so many ways. They are a great part of my life - an amazing part of my life that I am thankful to the Lord for. And for real - we have so much fun!

I am glad that Bethany is enjoying her training. I fully agree with your coupon frustration. Why not just reduce the price and simply the whole process. I think it is complicated to cause many to not deal with the frustration and just pay the full price. I hope that you and John are nearly ready for your trip to Israel. I SAW THAT JOHN FINISHED HIS LAST PAPER AND THAT HAS TO BE GOOD NEWS FOR BOTH OF YOU. Sorry the caps god stuck on and it was quicker to finish sentence that was than erase without an eraser. Have a wonderful weekend. I have my third blog response done and Megan is ready for me to get her up.

Weird -- my Google reader shows a new post entitled "Yea, John", but it's not showing up when I come to the blog. We'll blame it on Africa technology and add our "we're proud of you, John" comment to this post.

Bethany - I can't remember if I've commented here before or not, but I have been popping in every once in a while to see how you're doing. I am so impressed by all your running and it is SO MOTIVATING to me to hear other people are doing races. (My big goal is a 5K, and we'll see.)

Anyway, great to see you and hear how you're doing. Reminds me of way back when we were working Northland Camp together. Oh my gosh, that was eight years ago!?
