During my 5k row I prayed.
I didn’t ask for a quick row time, or to make the soreness in my ass go away.. I praised God. For my legs, my arms, my abilities, my hands and feet.. for the training partners I had by my side fighting through the same pain as me. I prayed for my family and friends. I thanked God for my parents and their support.. for a family to come home to for the holidays and for the people that have been a family to me since moved, who are constantly opening their doors to me whenever I am in need.
When I started to struggle and the thought of giving up crossed my mind, I closed my eyes and prayed. I have never felt so fast and light on the rower, so in control and aware of my body. I was in the moment. I knew exactly what my split time was without even looking at the monitor by the feel of my muscles, speed, and the sound of the fan.
I will never forget how good today felt. I will never forget that I can do ANYTHING through CHRIST who STRENGTHENS me. What a beautiful moment.
