60 Miles for My Husband’s Healing and for My 60th Birthday

How I ran 60 miles with the support and love of family.

I have learned that when life throws you or those you love a curve, the best thing to do is to stay positive, remain prayerful, adapt, never give up, and make new plans.

With my my crew and pacers at mile 53. L. to. R.: Jordan, Max, Sebastian, me, Jon, Sawyer, Jonna, and Taryn.

I thanked God for giving me the strength to take me to the next mile.

What I do know is that tough times don’t last; tough people do.

I keep moving forward. I keep my feet off the ground and keep reaching for the finish.
