Incredible Journey

Those of you who have been following this blog are familiar with Donna Nelson and her battle with breast cancer. For those of you who are new to this blog, Donna was diagnosed in November 2007. Less than one year from her diagnosis she was back running, a 5K. In October she ran a 10K and on February 15th, she ran the half-marathon at the "26.2 with Donna".

This past weekend in Eugene, OR., she completed the "FULL" marathon, all 26.2 miles. Those of us who run know how difficult it is to run a marathon even under the best of conditions. To run one within 18 months of being diagnosed with breast cancer is truly "INCREDIBLE".

When Donna mentioned she wasn't pleased with her finish time, I reminded her of the quote from John "The Penguin" Bingham. "Your spirit doesn't know how to tell time."

Anyone, regardless of your physical condition, needs only to look at the photograph that accompanies this posting. The photo is of Donna crossing the finish line at the marathon.

What an "Incredible Journey"!
Prayers & Love.
