I have NOT Arrived

I’m prayerfully working on becoming fit and healthy.  The journey has not been entirely smooth.  In fact, it has even been painful at times.

“I forget the past and strain ahead for what is still to come.  I am racing for the finish, for the prize to which God calls us upwards to receive in Christ Jesus.” ~Phil. 3:14

I do it all in prayer and with the support of my family & friend/accountability partner. 117OLYMP1

Still, it is a constant act of the will.  I continue to be tried and tested.

My pray is for perseverance.  I’m running for physical and spiritual fitness. 

“Tackling serious matters with a sporting spirit gives very good results. Perhaps I have lost several games? Very well, but — if I persevere — in the end I shall win.” ~ St. Josemaria Escriva, Furrow, 169

This journey is for Him.


  1. Ouch! My second toe it larger than my bog toe too and it takes a beating in sneakers when I run! Vibrams work well if you like to run barefoot.

  2. Owchie Mama! Wounds for the warrior in you...Great job, I'm rooting for you! I am constantly reminding my SELF "no pain, no gain." Just LOVE the quotes that go with your goals...Amen! Especially the one by Josemaria Escriva. Mary's Militia will not be defeated...Go,Fight, Win!

  3. Back again! Just read this scripture over at another blog and had to share with you. Have you seen it?
    "Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you SHINE LIKE STARS in the universe as you hold out the word of life - in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing." - Philippians 2:14-16

  4. Keep persevering, Sister! ALL FOR!

    (love your little bear) :)

  5. Hi Lena, keep offering up the pains to God! I just received Peggy Bowes Rosary Workout and I'm hoping that will go well for me too! God Bless.
