And here's Athletics Canada's 2012 Olympic Games Internal Nominations Procedures .
I don't really have a lot to say about it all, yet. Why there is no "Rising Star" for the marathon is something I don't understand, amongst other things. But I do know that I won't let it consume me; that, I learned from Nicole Stevenson. If God wants me in London, it will happen. If not, He has something else planned!
Hey, take a look at the all-time Canadian Women's Marathon times.
Rank Time Name Date
Looks like Lanni and I will capture spots 9 and 10, respectively (Lanni 2:31:51 and Krista 2:32:05)! Pretty cool.
All of this can be very exciting, yet very "it's all about me". I'm so glad God gives us opportunities in our life to be humbled, to be placed lower. The scripture below has been so meaningful to me lately. Despite what does or does not happen in my life, I always want to be in a place where it's all about Him, not me; I so look forward to His plan, giving back, and helping others.
