Yes, I know, it may seem a little different in the line of missions, but I am using it as a means to get to know more ladies in the community. I pray to use training for The Race for Women, every year to meet more and more ladies.
This year, I ran alone, got to know a few ladies, met my goal, got my prizes, and went to church. Next year however, I would love to have a group from our church sign up, and have a verse ironed on our shirts with the church´s name!
A little bit about The Race for Women. It´s a 5 kilometer (3.2 mile) race to promote breast cancer awarness and to raise money to help support research for the fight against it. There will be a total of 9 races throughout Spain this year. This has been the sixth year that the Race for Women has taken place. Gijón had a great turn out of about 3,000 women! It was amazing to participate in something so benificial and widespread. It even was on the city news this afternoon. I actually saw my head pass by the camera.
Here I am before the start, bright eyed and bushy tailed! literally.
My cheering section! It was so great to see their faces when I crossed the finish line!
I am behind the that lady in front. hehe (my dh tried to get pictures, but someone always got in the way.)
Here´s some of the ladies that came in after me.
