See, running can be a good "habit"

(Above; The Desert Nuns in training for Nun Run Race Day on March 20...listen in on EWTN, Thursday March 11 for a phone interview with Sr. Augustine)

And now, a local update:
The run is 10 days away.  At the good suggestions of a few of my running compadres I have adjusted my run training to include a few wickedly long runs in my week.  Last Friday I ran for 57 minutes and pushed a little over 5 miles.  I believe this is a personal best. I started cramping at about 4 miles which passed and then I was able to get into a really good head space that last push. I am feeling good and strong. A 10k run is 6.2 miles so I have put a 75 minute run as a goal into my weekend. It's not as bad as it sounds.  Just about everything can be broken up into little bits.  hey wait a minute; that might be a blog post idea.... (note to self)

So inspired is as inspired does!  Because of my supernaturally generous donors and zealous challengers, I have committed to a 10k in lieu of the 5k.  Please pray that I can go the distance. I know that all things are possible with God. I have generated a little shy of $1000 for the good sister's new Monestary in Tonopah, Arizona! To those of you who have risen to this occaision in support of me, this, them, etc. THANK YOU! and keep praying...

  1. GOOD FOR YOU! The first time I ran a 10K I was so wrung out I felt like a limp rag at the finish line. But finish, I did. And you will, too. By throwing in a few longer runs, you'll feel like the 6.2 miles is easier than you think it is. Also, the comraderie of talking with the other runners beside you will make it all happen seamlessly - before you know it, you'll be over the finish line. YOU GO, GIRL!
