Yesterday Joni flew in and she will be helping with the filming of this event for SP. It is also great for me to have my good friend here as I run the marathon. For any of you who have run a marathon you know the feelings of doubt, worry and anxiousness that you go through before a marathon-not to mention after the marathon the flood of emotions that you go through. So, to have a good friend who can calm me down, encourage me and be there when I finish is such a huge blessing.
After some office 'work' we did some filming of me running in a park for the SPUK/US office. Here are a couple photo's Jo took...
All Hail Liberia, Hail!!!
Hopefully I will look as fresh as this at the finish line!
Joni has an amazing gift in her work-especially in the area of communications-both in photography and doing videos. Here is a video that she did on me for this marathon. I can't load it on the blog but check it out on my facebook at this link:
My prayer is that when you watch this video you will get a better glimpse of why I am running. I can't explain to you what an amazing experience this has been. I often think "Bev, you are just a small town Canadian girl (from the Yukon/B.C. at that!) what are you even doing here!!!" I hope that my life is a testament of when God takes something small, like me-He can make it great for Him.
I will update my blog one more time before running on Sunday. After the marathon I will give a full report on the events of that day...I can't wait to share them with you...
