Last year, my wife ran the May Day 5K in Republic, MO, while I watched, cheered, and agonized over the state of our marriage.  I wasn’t in running shape at the time, but I had been doing the couch to 5K program and I did run the 1 mile fun run.

Today, we both ran the May Day 5K as part of the restoration tour.

Last year at this time, I could only wonder why my wife had decided we were through.  I still had hope on the day of last year’s race, but things had to get much worse before they got better.

Today, it wasn’t our times or whether we placed (we didn’t) that mattered.  It was that we were together, in love, and committed to restoring our marriage.

That’s the goal of this year of restoration.  It’s to replace the painful memories with new, happy ones.  It’s to heal the hurts we caused each other and repair the damage of our past mistakes by creating a new present that will become our new future.
