Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: My feet are numb.

Nov 13, 2007

My feet are numb.

One thing I love about life is kicking butt in the face of adversity. Like the new Kanye West song, Stronger, says "What doesn't kill me only makes me stronger." Despite everything swirling around me and not knowing what the future holds ahead for me until tomorrow, today I set out to accomplish something I've never done.

Run 10 miles.


And WOO HOO!!!! I DID IT! Not only did I run 10 miles, I ran a little bit over my goal at 10.38 miles and burned 1114 calories! And ok, maybe I didn't "run" the whole time, but with each run, I'm starting to gain more and more stamina to run more and walk less.

I've always joked with others that I always have my best workouts when I'm either feeling backed in a corner, or mad at someone. Though I'm not particularly mad at someone right now, I AM mad at this horrible disease that scares the crap out of people and takes loved ones from us, so today I ran for all those who have been effected by cancer. I legs are aching, my feet are covered in blisters, and I could barely breathe for most of the run, but it was worth every moment and I felt so alive.

On the Nike iPod, there is a button you can press to play your selected "power song". My song is Alive by P.O.D. Even though they are rockstars in the secular world, they are Christians, and I love this anthem they sing to God.



Everyday is a new day
I’m thankful for every breath I take
I won’t take it for granted
So I learn from my mistakes
It’s beyond my control, sometimes it’s best to let go
Whatever happens in this lifetime
So I trust in love
You have given me peace of mind

Chorus:
I, I feel so alive for the very first time
I can’t deny you
I feel so alive
I, I feel so alive for the very first time
And I think I can fly

Sunshine upon my face
A new song for me to sing
Tell the world how I feel inside
Even though it might cost me everything
And now that I know that it's beyond my control
It's like I can never turn my back away
And now that I’ve seen you
I can never look away

You go girl! That's awesome! You've motivated me to drag my Nikes out of the closest and get back out there :)

Kara- Glad I could motivate you. You and I need to get in a new challenge!

Rachel- Ha, I'm trying!

WOW! 10 miles! That is amazing. Thanks for sharing that song. It opened my eyes. I normally would have not given that song a chance but being able to read the words first made me realize that I could be missing some really great songs.

I can't believe you!! WOW!!! Amazing. You must be in fantastic shape. It's so great to be healthy and active isn't it? I just love it. I adore running; but I'm a three-mile TOPS kind of girl. Any longer I get bored! (And so does my dog.)

Shara- So glad you could be blessed by the song!

Jamie- Ha, I'm trying to get in shape. Running 10 miles makes you realize how out of shape you can be! I haven't run since b/c my ankles have been swelling. But yeah, my dog is about a three-mile dog too, so I've had to leave him home lately for my runs. He reaches a point after 3 or 4 miles where he just stops and plops in the grass and says no more and I have to carry him the rest of the way. Then again, he's only 10 pounds, I don't blame him.

I'm with Rhett...3 miles is plenty. I've never been able to run in my life b/c I have asthma but all of a sudden I had the urge to try. I ran 3/4 of a mile without stopping yesterday...THAT was a huge victory for me. Now I feel like a total wuss...thanks a lot! :)

Ha, that's more than I can run. I run maybe 1 or 2 minutes at a time, gasp, walk for another few minutes, then try to run again, gasp, walk... you get the point. I have yet to run a full mile yet. But I'm trying to work up to it!
