Three Things Thursday

Happy Birthday Erika
MCM Mama Goes Masters Race

Wednesday pm run ~ Day # 108

I ran my miles for MCM Mama Goes Masters virtual race
8.25 miles ~ 1:10:29
A rather unimpressive run as I have been struggling with tired legs
(Gee, you think? Day # 109 today)
but I am happy to say that I enjoyed my miles and the thoughts of Erika entering a new age group in her racing career.
Happy Birthday Erika!

When will this streak end?
Another opportunity to get an additional entry into my trio of giveaways
But anyone can submit their guess.
This crazy streak will come to an end.  The only question is, when?
So I thought it might be fun to make a bit of a game out of it.
If you want to submit your guess and have it count toward whatever prize I can come up with, send me an email to shellyrm at yahoo dot com
with the subject My Guess
and include 1) how many days you think I'll last - I am at #109 today
and 2) how many miles you think I'll have run - I am at 793.20
I will accept guesses until midnight Friday August 27th
The emails will not be opened until the streak ends
(so don't include anything you want me to read before then)
The winner will be the person or persons who comes the closest (but not over) on both numbers!

For those who question why/how I would/could run for so many days.
A demonstration that these are not just words but facts.

Isaiah 40:28-31 (NIV)
 they will walk and not be faint.
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,


  1. hmmmm. i'll have to think about this....

  2. Ooooh, fun! A guessing game! :)

    Nice 8+ miler!

  3. haha i have no idea when the streak will end because you are the energizer bunny! forver?! :)

  4. Oh Shelly, I totally needed those verses today.

    Keep running, lady. You're an inspiration to many!

    Run on.

  5. Love the truth of scripture! You are so inspiring! I have only followed your blog for a few weeks. I am a novice runner, hoping it just becomes a part of me. I do wonder what a typical day is like for you in terms of food. I am sure this may seem weird, but have you ever blogged about your daily menu? :)

  6. 8.25 in 1:10 is unimpressive?! I think not!

  7. A guessing game? I am no good at them so I'll refrain from guessing. Your 8.25 miler had a nice time! I hope your legs are feeling better after your run.

  8. Nice job on that 8 miler! I love your running streak, often times lately when I've been unmotivated to go out and run (even when I need to!) I have thought of you! Way to go! Happy Thursday!

  9. I love that verse and the worship song that goes along with it. ;)

  10. End? What? I think you're gonna go forever :) You are a running machine!

  11. Hey there...thanks for the comment. My email is elizabethwhitehill @ gmail (dot) com

  12. your 8.25 was quite impressive. even more-so on day 109!

  13. Great idea! And, awesome pace on the 8.25 miles!

  14. great job, speedy shelly!!! Rockstar! I can't believe you have gone this far without a break. I thought 15 days was crazy for me earlier this year! HA! You are super woman!
