More Results and Maybe an Answer????

Ultrasound: NORMAL! Thank you Jesus.

Blood Tests....NOT NORMAL. My iron is EXTREMELY low and my Vitamin D is a little low. Hmmm....I am off to the store today to get my supplements.

And then I found this online:

"Iron Deficiency in Runners Can Reduce Their Performance

Not only does iron deficiency cause fatigue, it reduces running performance. Iron has the critical job of supplying cells with oxygen, and if muscle cells don't have enough oxygen during exercise, they produce lactic acid. When lactic acid builds up, it causes muscle fatigue, which isn't a good thing if you're a runner. One study showed runners who supplemented with 100 milligrams of ferrous sulfate for six weeks, had better endurance and less muscle fatigue even if they didn't have low iron levels."

Hmmmm...have we found our answer?

I will let you know.

Some results....

Well I have gotten the MRI back...CLEAR! WAHOOOO!

Still waiting for the ultrasound results, which is frustrating because I had it done last Friday! UGH! Praying it comes back clear.

I have been having some massive leg pain and it feels at times like I can't breathe. I really don't know what normal is anymore. I am continuing on with my plan to run Eugene, however slow it might be. This is when I really wish I had a running partner. Someone to talk with and figure out if what I am feeling is normal.

I might just have that running partner on Saturday though! The Yenster is here and we might just go shake our legs out together.

I will let you know.

Liking that I am back to blogging. Might be a bit more serious about it now....who knows! :)

Big Break

Yup big break time took full effect around September. But the good news is since then, I have run the Disney Half Marathon, kept up on swimming, kept running and decided to run the Eugene Marathon. Unfortunately there have been some medical set backs that have recently come about. Hoping to get more info today, and will let you all know! The Eugene Marathon might become the Eugene Half Marathon....and that's okay!

Pray me for...we need my lab work to come back we really, really need it to!

Love you and glad to be back!

Things I know for sure...

1. There is absolutely no way in this world that I could function without Jesus. I try, sinfully, and fail, miserably.
2. I am really glad to have my sister home.
3. Having new friends is fun!
4. Chelan is more amazing then I remember, especially with old friends.
5. Marriage is hard. But worth it.
6. The more open handed I am to God the more I can be used by Him. "So just be open handed Shelby" Easier said then done sometimes.
7. I really, really, REALLY like be healthy (for the most part) again.
8. Running is WAY easier without PE. Duh.
9. Psalm 63 is just what I needed tonight.
10. I still have love handles. They say "what up."
11. My fav new Ben and Jerry's is Chubby Hubby. Hmmm....this might have a strange correlation to #10?
12. Disneyland Half is getting closer and closer and I am getting more and more excited.
13. God gives us blessings, that we don't deserve, to enjoy and to make His name more glorified. That is what we are hoping to do on Aug 26 with our new blessing.
14. I am really excited for Pioneer Woman's new show!
15. Go back to #1. :)

A Kingdom Heart

“when a woman has a kingdom heart, she has an active understanding of what matters most to the heart of God. she lives in the balance of passion and contentment. she learns to love well, give without regard to self, and forgive without hesitation. the woman with a kingdom heart may have a duffel bag full of possessions or enough treasures to fill a mansion, but she has learned to hold them with an open hand. hold everything with open hands. i don’t think we are ever allowed to grab hold of anything or anyone as though they matter more than the kingdom of heaven. when you hold relationships with open hands, then people come in and out of your life as gifts of grace to be cherished and enjoyed, not objects to be owned and manipulated. and then when you hold your dreams with open hands, you get to watch God resurrect what seemed dead and multiply what seemed small.” -uknown
