The One Mile Challenge

Running one mile may not be difficult for some people. Okay, for most people. But running one mile for me would be a huge accomplishment. Until my senior year of high school I had not be able to run at all... walking was a huge challenge, and at one point standing. Now after many braces, surgeries, therapy, and prayer; I am able to stand, walk, and now... run.

About six weeks ago I bought running shoes and started to walk. Two weeks in I started to "run." Really it was jogging and only for very short distances (like a hundred meters). Now I am able to "run" for half a mile! My goal is to run one mile by 2011.

The best part about this is how God has totally come through. I have had many doctors tell me that I will never be able to play sports, dance, or run. Well, I guess the doctors have never met my God, because even after everything the doctors tried to do for me, I kept getting worse. Once people started to pray for me, and I gave it up to God; I started to get better.

Now, three years later, I am running!
I love how great my God is!
