This day last year, I was flat on my back and helpless, hooked up to wires and machines, going in for a second surgery because the first one had failed and I was bleeding to death internally. Less than two weeks later, I was back on my feet; wobbly but standing. Still standing... My God. My Father. Jehovah Rapha. My Healer. May I never in this life be so consumed by immediate problems that I forget Your Greater and SURE Mercies🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 #Mercy #Grace #Love #Life #StillStanding #SoBlessed

And when she became
The woman she had feared she might be
The one she had strived not to be
She found to her surprise
That this woman
Scarred in the battles of living
Imperfect compared to the dream
Was blessed with much meaning
She soon came to realize
That she liked her well enough
And so she unfroze her heart
Looked into those knowing eyes
And said, dear me, I love you.

"A (wo)man who calls [her] kins(wo)men to a feast does not do so to save them from starving. They all have food in their own homes. When we gather together in the moonlit village ground it is not because of the moon. Every (wo)man can see it in [her] own compound. We come together because it is good for kins(wo)men to do so."

When a Nigerian gal tells you, "I cannor coman goan kee myself on top dis matter," you best believe her.

One of the things I love about the gym is that for about one 1 hour, you could totally forget the world with all its nonsense and just GRIND. Owwwww! What a rush!
_
OK. As you were👊🏾

So, you kit up for a 10K, open the front door and see … rain. You exclaim, “What? I’m not crazy enough to go running in that.” You swivel around and head back to your bedroom, hand on your ear phones, about to yank them out. But you stop with your hand on the bedroom door handle thinking, “Of course! I AM crazy enough to go running in the rain.”
_
I guess this is when you know you’ve caught run fever, good and true.
_
Now why did today’s run keep reminding me vividly of one day in November 2016, when I went running on the East River in New York? On that day, I was distracted by a furious WhatsApp chat with my bff until I stepped out the door and the finality of the ‘thud’ with which it shut behind me, snapped me back into reality and … the realization that I’d left my keys inside the house. To cut a long story short, it was 6am, I kept running. After my run, I spent two hours outside in the freezing cold until my agents got to work at 9am. And I that was how I got to know that the homeless drunk who sat on my front door stoop night and day was called Jake. I bought him a sandwich, but I cannot remember anything I discussed with Jake for 2 hours that morning.
_
So, what’s the link between this run and that run? Nairobi cold is not joking!
_
The icing on this cake? A faster pace than a no-rain day. Yayyyy!

And ... I woke up this morning and decided to run a half-marathon for 3 reasons:
_
1. My chum came inbox on WhatsApp the previous night to tempt me with accolades. What's a girl to do? I couldn't disappoint him ... or me. I figure I could always use some accolades😎
_
2. My NikeRun App will not register the 21K I ran on April 6 as a half-marathon because a half-marathon is 21.1K. Yikes! I thought I'd better remedy that, so ... done, with 17 minutes off my April run time??? NikeRun, may I have my accolades now?💃🏽
_
3. I promised myself I would achieve 800K by June 30th. With how I loafed around in the past 3 days, it was clear it wouldn't happen without a miracle. I decided to punish myself this morning and run at least a half ... All done now. What's left of 800K is now officially carried over into July. No accolades on this one😞

Who else has reached their mid-year target(s)? Tell us all about it.

It has been a while if I may say so myself; my posts have not quite been what they used to be, but I am still here.
_
I've had a moment to go through life ... I am still going through, but I'm glad to report that my fit-life remains unshaken. In fact, fitness has helped a whole lot. There have been good days, stellar days and sloppy days, but I've held on with all I've got. There were and still are, days when I set out running; to run away from my troubles or myself, I have no idea. In fact, I've run my best times this season, even when pace or speed were not at the top of my mind, but it appeared the pain in my chest drove me further than my legs could have. All good. I'm thankful to still be on my feet. 
_
With the love of friends and family, the process of going through is eased up a whole lot too. 
_
With God and an innumerable company of angels fighting my battles, I know I will eventually emerge in heels. Yes, heels for me, never flip-flops!
_
To the glory of God, I'm still here; still standing STRONG. Amen!

Ahoy Friends👋🏽👋🏽👋🏽

This post should really be about how I just managed to reach 33K this week - emphasis on managed - but, I feel the need to share how I achieved - not managed - 30 pull-ups in 3 sets of 10. Something I couldn't have imagined when I set the goal earlier this year.
_
My point now is, whether running, pull-ups or any other target, set it, keep at it and you'll reach it. Amen?
_
Who else is running? How are you doing.
_
Have a beautiful weekend everyone💖
