Thank You

This is the first time I have ever trained for a race and really wanted to quit.  I am physically and mentally exhausted.  There are days I think about how I could justify quitting and then I think of you...each one of you faithful blog readers with all your encouragement and support...and I smile and suck it up!  Thank you.  As long as God continues to bless me with good health I will continue to count on you for the mental strength and accountability.  Thank you.  So keep reading and I'll keep running!  And thank you.


  1. Still reading (and praying)...and am blessed and encouraged by each and every post. Love you!

  2. I am going to continue to hold the vision for you, friend, when you are weary. I appreciate so much your transparency, faith, and are inspiring to watch. May God continue to strengthen you on this journey. Many blessings to you!

  3. Hi there! I know that you ladies don't know me(although I met Niki at the ladies retreat a year or so ago), but I have found such inspiration from your blog and your journey. I ran the Komen Austin 5k and my first race ever about a year ago in honor of my momma who had just been diagnosed with breast cancer. I have run off and on since then, but recently was challenged to do another race. This time, it's a 10k. My body is not exactly built for all...but I find a huge accomplishment when I'm able to complete a run and I know that I could have never done it without God's help and His divine intervention. And then there's you girls. You are quite amazing and give me a boost of "I can do this!!!" So thank you. And God bless you.

    1. Kara,
      Wow. God used you today in our lives. I won't go in to details but I truly believe God inspired you to send this email at EXACTLY the right day and time. THANK YOU for your uplifting words. Niki and I needed those today. We are proud of you!

      Lisa & Niki

  4. Lisa & Niki,
    Unfortunately, I just now saw this sweet note and I do have to say that fortunately, God's timing is perfect, b/c I needed your words of encouragement today! Isn't God amazing like that? Thank you and God bless you both!
