Today was the Brooksie Way Half Marathon! What an awesome run! The weather was great, no rain and comfortable high 50's/low 60's. The race started at about 8:15. Scott and I ran together for about the first 4 miles or so which was nice, we got to chat, catch up, joke around - we don't typically run together (someone has to watch the kids) so we're not used to that but it was really great to spend that time together. At about mile 4 1/2 Scotty picked up the pace and went on ahead. That's when I decided to turn on Pandora and for the next 8 and a half miles or so I rocked the Christian music and prayed for a cure. I prayed for all of our angels, especially our critical ones right now and those with seizures that can't be controlled, that their suffering would be eased. I prayed for our researchers and rett specialists, that God would direct their thoughts and actions. I prayed for our parents that wake every morning and put on their boxing gloves ready to fight Rett once again. I prayed for all of the rett organizations and those on the front line raising awareness and funds for our angels. I prayed for October and that all of the fundraisers this month would be wildly successful. And lastly I thanked God for his mercy and that in His perfect time our girls will be healed. "For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds" said the Lord. Jeremiah 30:17
I know one day soon my Annie will be runnning along side me - actually, she'll probably blow right past me! After battling Rett anything else is cake.
A huge thank you to everyone who donated to the run. We raised $370 for Rett Research!
Oh yah, stats: Scotty: 1 hour 58 minutes Bridget: 2 hours 2 minutes
