annalouisebrooks Here is a terribly unflattering photo of me racing last week.
I am learning that running isn't just about our victories, but about using what has been given to us in each moment. During this race that meant stepping out of my comfort zone and racing an 800 meters. God is really teaching me to hold each race with open hands and see what He does with them-the bad ones and the good ones.

This is the sport I love and am so thankful to be a part of.

annalouisebrooks My #superspeedysunday #megancrushmonday #trackgirltuesday #womancrushwednesday #throwbackthursday and #favoriteathletefriday all go out to this girl. I am so proud of her and her gold medal yesterday!! But more than that, I am so honored to have you as a friend, and am so blessed to see how much you have grown since we met freshman year (and not in height) although that is impressive too love you @mmegann_11

And no-I am not crying-the sun was in my eyes.

annalouisebrooks Today I was reminded what wonderful friends I have. (And these are just two of them) These two girls have been a huge blessing the past couple weeks and so supportive and willing to help me in my endeavors.
Beka, you are strong, hard working, and generous. As strong as you are, you continue to be an example of what love looks like and you demonstrate the power of a tender heart.
Abby, man-you get me. You are right there by my side supporting all the time. You remind me how to be gentle and loving and it blows me away.
Thank you for all you two do and for spurring me on like Christ calls us to.
