My mother tells me that a teacher will hold the students hand as they study and learn the material, they will coach and guide but when the test comes, they sit back in silence and let the student demonstrate what they have learned. Not always, but often that is the case and it's always nice to come through those tests, look to the teacher and see "YEP, He was there the whole time. " It was that kind of week: pieces fell into place, I stood my ground, God's timing was perfect and everything feels good even if it isn't perfect.
Tomorrow morning I am running my first race as a MDRA ( Minnesota Distance Running Association) member! The MDRA 7 mile!
