my roommate emily

December 4, 2008

My roommate of one and a half years is celebrating 26 years of life today.  Please take a moment to pray for her (she needs it since she has to put up with me on a day-to-day basis), visit her blog and wish her a happy birthday.

Emily continues to inspire me.  She has an amazing drive and determination that allowed her to train for and run a 25k in the spring and a half marathon in the fall.  She is the reason I started running.  Her excitement for all things healthy and for running is contagious.  I don’t know how I would have survived my no-sugar diet without her support.  Emily’s adventurous spirit has been a good influence on me: I actually have color in my wardrobe!

We knew each other before becoming roommates, but I never expected we would become such great friends.

Emily, I can’t thank you enough for the support, encouragement and inspiration you offer.  Thank you for keeping me accountable to my resolutions.  I am blessed by your friendship.  It has been an honor to have a front row seat (while also working as a course marshal or at the aid station) at this race that is your life.  You have grown so much in this new passion for running.  I am excited to see where God takes you with it.  I am confident that this year will be amazing!

Happy Birthday, Emily!
